Dear all,

A beta release for Biopython 1.54 is now available for download
and testing, as announced here:


Noted that I haven't done a fully detailed release announcement,
we'll leave that for the official release.

Source distributions and Windows installers are available from
the downloads page on the Biopython website.

We are interested in getting feedback on the beta release as
a whole, but especially on the new features - including the
updated multiple sequence alignment object (which is what
you’ll now get when parsing alignments with Bio.AlignIO), the
new Bio.Phylo module, and the Bio.SeqIO support for Standard
Flowgram Format (SFF) files.

(At least) 10 people contributed to this release (so far), which
includes 4 new people:

Anne Pajon (first contribution)
Brad Chapman
Christian Zmasek
Eric Talevich
Jose Blanca (first contribution)
Kevin Jacobs (first contribution)
Leighton Pritchard
Michiel de Hoon
Peter Cock
Thomas Holder (first contribution)

On behalf of the Biopython team, thank you for any feedback,
bug reports, and contributions.
