All,

I am proud to announce, on behalf of the BioPerl core developers, that  
BioPerl 1.6.0 is now available.  This is the first BioPerl core  
release in the 1.6 series and is considered a 'stable' (non-developer)  
release.  The distribution has been uploaded to CPAN and is available  
under author name CJFIELDS; it should be hitting the various CPAN  
nodes over the next 24 hours.  A direct CPAN link is here:

http://search.cpan.org/~cjfields/BioPerl-1.6.0/

The release can also be directly downloaded here:

http://bioperl.org/DIST/BioPerl-1.6.0.tar.bz2
http://bioperl.org/DIST/BioPerl-1.6.0.tar.gz
http://bioperl.org/DIST/BioPerl-1.6.0.zip

Signature file:
http://bioperl.org/DIST/SIGNATURES.md5

Please feel free to report issues with testing, installation, etc. on  
the mail list, on this page:

http://www.bioperl.org/wiki/Release_1.6_Testing

or via Bugzilla:

http://bugzilla.open-bio.org/

We will be releasing BioPerl-run, BioPerl-db, BioPerl-network, and  
other BioPerl distributions separately in the next few days.  These  
will likely go through a short alpha release cycle depending on any  
problems that arise.  A PPM release for all distributions (including  
BioPerl core) will also be announced in the near future.

Thanks to everyone for chipping in on getting this release out the  
door!  It's been a looooong wait...

Enjoy!

chris
