We are pleased to announce a new beta release of the Staden Package - 2001.0b7.

The most significant change in this release is the merging of nip4 and sip4
into one program (named "spin") which includes a graphical user interface to
the EMBOSS tools. Spin therefore allows EMBOSS plots to be superimposed,
scrolled and scaled in the same manner as the existing nip4 and sip4 plots.

In addition to this Gap4 has many improvements, including speed increases
for larger projects (for example we have sites using 200,000 sequences
producing over 7Mb of consensus sequence), an improved Find Internal Joins, new
searches, longer sequence names and even more sequences allowed (now up to
99,999,999), the ZTR trace file format, a test-version of the new automatic
experiment suggestion tools, and bug fixes.

The beta release does not require a licence, but it expires on 11th November.
