A new version of the NCBI toolkit and new BLAST binaries have
been posted to the NCBI FTP site. The toolkit is available at
ftp://ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/toolbox/ncbi_tools/ and the BLAST binaries
are available at ftp://ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/blast/executables/
Notes for BLAST 2.0.12 release:
1.) Bl2seq can now perform nucleotide-protein (blastx style)
This necessitated changing the '-p' option from a Boolean to a
string. Valid arguments are "blastn", "blastp", or "blastx".
1.) A problem in the NCBI threads library that caused BLAST to sometimes
stick was corrected. Many thanks to Haruna Cofer and colleauges at SGI
for providing a fix.
2.) A problem that caused BLAST to core-dump (especially on long
has been fixed. Many thanks to Gary Williams for providing examples.
3.) A problem that prevented the search of multiple multivolume
has been fixed.
