  There are several new search items at IUBio archive.
  These include
    Genbank-Sequences/
      Search GenBank (latest full release)/ <??>
      Search GenBank (weekly updates)/ <??>
      Search Swiss-Protein (latest full release)/ <??>
    Flybase/
      Genes/ Search FlyBase Genes data/ <??>
      People/ Search FlyBase People addresses / <??>
      Stocks/ Search Bloomington USA stocks/ <??> and others
      Refs/ Search FlyBase References/ <??>
    IUBio-Software+Data/
      Search IUBio archive ReadMes & Help files/ <??>
    Network-News/
      Search Bionet News thru IUBio / <??>
      
  All employ the new Gopher+ methods.  The reason for adding these
  items is to allow you to specify more options and choices for
  your search.  These items let you ask for a maximum number of matches,
  and for the returned matches, you get also a document with just
  the titles (which is all some of you want), and the further choice
  to fetch items separately or all in a batch as one document.

  This new Gopher+ method does not work properly with the older
  gopher- clients.  But for those of you using Gopher+ clients, you now 
  have more options for searching.  The older Search items will remain. 
  
  I recommend that you consider switching to one of the newer
  Gopher+ clients if you are using an older, non-gopher+ client.
  Here is a list of Gopher+ clients that will work properly with
  these new searches:

	     (as of 15 Oct 93)
	   Unix curses (Uminn,v.2.08)
	   Mac TurboGopher (v.1.07)  
	   Mac GopherApp++ (v.2.0)   
	   MSWin HGopher   (v.2.2) 
   
   You may find copies of these in the folder 
     Gopher+TEST/Gopher+software/
   on this server. However, it is possibly these will be older versions.
   You may need to look at the server at boombox.micro.umn.edu for pointers
   to the newest software versions.
