The 2.4 release of SacchDB was released four months ago in May 1995.
We have found that the number of people that retrieved this version
was small. Also that the usage of the WWW version has continued to
increase. We are therefore concentrating our efforts at keeping the
WWW version up-to-date. However, I will be creating version 2.5 after
incorporating the information from the newly released chromosome X
sequencing project (F. Galibert, et al., 1995). We are also working
to replace our existing WWW software so that the maps are usable.
