Dear Biopythoneers,

A beta release for Biopython 1.54 is now available for download
and testing - 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 Python 3.3 support and the change
to sub-feature handling in EMBL/GenBank parsing for joins.

(At least) 22 people have contributed to this release (so far),
which includes 11 new people:

Alexander Campbell (first contribution)
