and from Celera's own site:

                                             Welcome to the future site of Celera
Genomics’ online
                                             sequence database. Celera completed
sequencing of the
                                             Drosophila melanogaster (fruit fly)
genome on September 9,
                                             1999, and will begin making sequence
data available to the
                                             public in late October 1999.
Publication in collaboration with
                                             the Berkeley Drosophila Genome Project
(BDGP) will occur in
                                             early 2000.
So, indeed looks like a contract violation to me...
