	A new release of the FASTA package, version 1.6c, is now available
for downloading from uvaarpa.virginia.EDU as /public_access/fasta16c.shar
and /public_access/fasta16c.shar.Z.

	This release fixes bugs in the routines for calculating optimized
scores in a band.  These routines (l_band.c and g_band.c) are used by
fasta, tfasta, lfasta, and plfasta.  With one or two exceptions, the bugs
never occured on SUN, rs/6000, VMS, or DOS machines, it was not until I
began testing the Mac version that the problem appeared. Unfortunately, the
errors were present also in the other versions.
