Hi everybody,

It's been a while since our latest Biopython release. I'm planning to put
together a new release (version 1.41, code-named "Manhattan") and hoping to
release it by the end of next week. So if you have some code sitting around
that is stable enough for a Biopython distribution, this would be a good time
to commit it to CVS.
Currently, the following tests fail:
  test_MEME ---> because we don't have the test_MEME output file for
So actually, we're in pretty good shape. If one of these modules is yours,
please have a look at them and (if possible) try to fix them.

Also, in Bugzilla, 14 bugs are still open, please have a look to see if there
is something we can do about them.

Finally, if a module was significantly changed since the previous release (18
February 2005), or if a module has been added since then, it would be nice to
have a summary for the web page.

Good luck everybody, and may the gods of software development be on our side.
