          Announcing the first official release of the
                  Bioperl central distribution:


This is the first coordinated release of the public domain Perl
modules for computational biology being co-developed under the banner
of the Bioperl Project:

Some highlights of this distribution:

   * Includes Ewan Birney's Bio/Compile/SW package containing
     XS-linked C code for creating sequence alignments using the
     Smith-Waterman dynamic programming algorithm from within Perl.

   * Incorporates the latest version of Steve Chervitz's Blast
     module distribution for parsing/running/analyzing Blast reports.

   * Includes Georg Fuellen's for multiple alignment
     object and Chris Dagdigian's core object.

   * Expanded set of example scripts for all included modules.

   * Detailed documentation for all included modules.

More about the Bioperl project can be found at the recently updated website, which has some new features as well.
