The Vienna RNA Package is available from  ftp.itc.univie.ac.at
directory pub/RNA.
We have used it sofar for sequences up to approx. 4200 bp
(Qbeta virus). Prediction of the minimum free energy structure is
limited only by the memory of your maschine. 
The program 
calculates also the partition function (McCaskill 1991) and
the base pairing probabilities. This function is limited by 
numerical accuracy, we don't recommand to use it beyond about
2500-4000 bp (You need more than 256 Megabyte of memory then
