Several people have asked where they can get new versions of acedb code.

If you go to the acedb ftp site (ftp://ftp.sanger.ac.uk/pub/acedb/) you will
find a tar/gzip file called:


this is our last monthly build of the 4_8c development code. The montly builds
are intended to be reasonably stable development code that we get internal users
at the Sanger centre to try out.

You are welcome to try out this code BUT NOTE THE FOLLOWING:

- this is development code, please don't use it on your prized database (unless
you are ready to restore the database yourself). Experiment with a copy !

- interfaces/code behaviour will change from month to month.

- there may be obvious bugs or performance problems which won't be fixed until
the next monthly release

- if you find a problem then do report it to us (either through this newsgroup
or via email, best to email acedb at sanger.ac.uk).

I will be updating the ftp site, especially the README, and will put new monthly
builds on the site as they are done.

cheers Ed
