It's been ready for distribution at least 6 months (and was working OK well
over a year ago), but I don't actually know whether it's being distributed!
MRC does not wish us to distribute the Windows version ourselves, hence the
long delay. It should be available from third party distributor(s) - currently
only eBioInformatics.

(I think eBioInformatics are waiting for a link-up with their bionavigator
before they distribute the Windows release, but that's not an authorative
answer - I try to keep out of the "distribution" side of things as there's
usually too many legal and political issues for my liking. I looked at their
web site and I couldn't see any mention of our software.)
