* Bio::Tools::Run::Phylo::Phylip::Neighbor
  - properly get the hash value

* Bio::Tools::Run::Phylo::Molphy::ProtML
  - align the code

* Bio::Tools::Run::Vista
  - Added java param to allow setting of java parameters, for example
    to set higher heap sizes..
  - Major bug, need to project aligmnents, basically need to remove
    position in pairwise aligmnet if both are gap characters, else
    vista will count wrongly

* Bio::Tools::Run::Alignment::Lagan
  - Allowing of setting of outfile
  - can't declare and expect a variable at the same time

* Bio::Tools::Run::FootPrinter
  - fix stupidity with tempfilehandle and outfh not being closed
    properly as reported by Ben Westover

* Bio::Tools::Run::EMBOSSApplication
  - no need for this debugging

* Bio::Tools::Run::PiseApplication::mfold
  - Pise/bioperl module for a recent version of mfold (3.1.2).

* Bio::Tools::Run::Phylo::Phylip::Consense
  - typo

* Bio::Tools::Run::Phylo::PAML::Codeml
  - fix typo reported in bug #1505
  - default should be an arrayref
  - George Hartzell fixes

* Bio::Tools::Run::Phylo::PAML::Yn00
  - bug #1507, SYNOPSIS is runnable now with API changes
  - bug #1507 add MSwin .exe extension where appropriate
  - wait -this isn't necessary , we already pad the PROGRAMNAME with
    the .exe when appropriate
  - George Hartzell fixes

* Bio::Tools::Run::FootPrinter
  - POD fixes

* Bio::Tools::Run::Alignment::Blat
  - well, at least it runs the blat program now, although it isn't
    seemingly able to find the output tempfile to retrieve the results

* t/Blat.t
  - well, at least it runs the blat program now, although it isn't
    seemingly able to find the output tempfile to retrieve the results
  - various fixes to get blat runnable in line with bioperl-live 1.2.3
    all tests now pass.

* t/Mdust.t
  - typo

* Bio::Tools::Run::Mdust
  - use save_tempfiles, use PROGRAMNAME as a variable, use tempfile
    instead of randomly generating filename
  - Modified call to io->tmpfile to get file name as well as handle

* Makefile.PL
  - George Hartzell fixes

* scripts/panalysis.PLS
  - Patched, thank you Albert

  - updated using info from maintanence/authors.pl script
