NEW in DNATools 5.1, revision 192:

The auto-build header function has been modified to accept also
the output from Gapped blast searches when done at NCBI.

The collection of SAGE programs is still being modified and extended as a
result of our current work with this approach to the analysis of gene
expression. A new function has been added and most of the existing ones
modified/improved. Printing SAGE tag distribution histograms may still not
work with all printers (it has only been tested on a HP LaserJet 6P)

Earlier version sometimes refused to display the text header form. This
should be corrected now.

The automated mail blast search has been used a lot and - at least on my PC -
works very efficiently, running the search job in the background and
delivering the output into the sequence header.

I have removed the MS Internet Browser dll (Shdocvw.dll) from the installation
files. Its presence sometimes caused installation problems - and the DNATools
internet browser only works if MS IE 4.0 is properly installed anyway.

The help file has been updated.
