Hi Frédéric,

The TAIR7 release contains a total of 32,041 genes including 26,819 
nuclear-encoded protein-coding genes, 1054 nuclear genes encoding RNAs, 
3,889 nuclear pseudogenes and transposon genes and 279 genes encoded by 
the chloroplast and mitochondrial genomes.

Here's a citation for the TAIR7 genome release:

Swarbreck et al. (2008) The Arabidopsis Information Resource (TAIR): 
gene structure and function annotation. Nucleic Acids Research 

You can download it from http://arabidopsis.org/about/D1009.pdf

For the TAIR6 and TAIR7 releases there was no change to the assembly so 
the size of the genome remains the same as for TIGR5. The 5 nuclear 
chromosomes have a total size of 118,998 Mb as described for the TIGR5
