The NCBI would like to announce the release of BLAST
2.2.7. Significant changes include:

* Standalone BLAST is now available for amd64-linux.

* formatdb now restricts volume sizes to 1G on 32-bit platforms for
  performance reasons.

* The -A option has been removed from formatdb, that is, all databases
  will be created with ASN.1 deflines.

* tblastn query concatenation now works correctly on 64-bit platforms.

* The wwwblast source code has been merged into the C toolkit tree and
  is no longer distributed with the binaries.

Binaries can be obtained from:
  ftp://ftp.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/blast/executables/release/2.2.7/

Source code can be obtained from:
  ftp://ftp.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/toolbox/ncbi_tools/old/20040202/ncbi.tar.gz
