That looks about right :)

This release of Biopython supports Python 2.6 and 2.7, 3.3 and also
the new 3.4 version.

--> Biopython is also tested on PyPy 2.0 to 2.3, and Jython 2.7b2.

The module Bio.CodonAlign is now in the master branch. It facilitates
building codon alignment and further analysis upon it. This work is
from the Google Summer of Code (GSoC) 2013.

--> include Zheng Ruan by name (as in the next paragraph about the
GSoC work by Yanbo). We should do this in the NEWS file too.

We could perhaps include links to the GSoC blogs? Good idea?
http://zruanweb.com/ and http://www.yeyanbo.com/tag/gsoc.html

Good plan. I think I put this in the README file but could you check
that too?
