Hello all,

an improved version of the MIRA 2 sequence assembler for genome or EST
assembly is available.

I have merged the 2.1 development branch into the main trunk, effectively
declaring the version to be 2.2 (and, after some polishing, 2.2.5).

Some new highlights:
- EST assembly now fully supported, even for non-normalised libraries.
Analysis of SNP types implemented.
- more result-, status- and logiles written
- improved alignment
- full IUPAC support
- new data preprocessing options (quality clipping, sequencing vector
leftover clipping, tagging of poly-A/T in ESTs etc.)
- overall improved speed and memory utilization in algorithms dedicated to
genome assembly
- reading of supplementary trace information in NCBI XML format supported

and a lot of tweaks to create better assemblies.
