Hi Claudia,

I haven't noticed any "avoid" replies yet, so I thought I'd start.  I 
have extensive experience (or is that extensive frustration?) 
with "AssemblyLIGN", on a Mac platform.  While the partner program 
(MacVector) is OK, the alignment program hasn't been updated much since 
1992/3.  It misses alignments Blind Freddy can see, and is generally 
inconvenient when working on big projects with lots of fragments.  It 
has some nice features, but there has to be something better out there!
