Just a quick note that the first alphas for BioPerl-Run, BioPerl-DB,  
and BioPerl-Network have been uploaded to CPAN:


And is available from the main BioPerl website:


This is the first run where we've switched to a regular Module::Build  
installation, so expect some initial bumps!  There are a few initial  
problems that I plan on addressing soon, the main one being none of  
the modules are assigned version numbers (this may be a consequence of  
not pulling the version from a specific module).  The other, more  
serious one, is that the Build.PL script checks for DBI but isn't  
checking for any compatible DBD::* adaptors for BioPerl-DB (so it  
fails tests if DBI is installed).  We have code in core to check for  
DBI drivers, so I may adapt that for BioPerl-DB.
