We are beginning the process of building release 58 of the EMBL Nucleotide
Sequence Database.

Daily updates:
 For those who work with daily updates from the EBI ftp server, the last 
 update file for release 57 is available today and named:
 ftp.ebi.ac.uk:pub/databases/embl/new/r57u057.dat.Z
 The next update file will contain post-release 58 data and be named:
 ftp.ebi.ac.uk:pub/databases/embl/new/r58u001.dat.Z as usual

Cumulative update file:
 The cumulative update file in
 ftp.ebi.ac.uk:pub/databases/embl/new/cumulative.dat.Z
 will continue to grow with new data until release 58 is built and is
 publicly available - we expect that to be around March 2nd.
 
NB From now on in daily updates, and in release 58, we have introduced the new
linetype SV (for sequence versions) and /protein_id qualifiers in CDS features.
Sequence versions, consisting of accession.version, will now appear in feature
table join statements instead of just accession numbers. See release notes for
more details.

Regards,
Peter Stoehr
