: It is supposed to be part of GCG V8.0 which is currently being shipped.

Keep in mind that there is a difference between a local version of 
BLAST, and a client version of BLAST. The latter gets you the results
from the NCBI (after registration), whereas the local version requires
storage and CPU resources. Local databases are in danger to be outdated,
and remote databases might contain entries you need to 'fetch' first.
