A new version (2.2.30) of the stand-alone BLAST executables is now available.

There are a number of improvements in the 2.2.30 release. These
improvements include new tasks for BLASTX and TBLASTN (blastx-fast and
tblastn-fast) that use the longer words as described in
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17921491. Composition-based
statistics is also now supported for RPS-BLAST. A number of bug fixes
(especially with regard to the FASTA parsing) are also included. See
for the full release notes.

LINUX, Windows, and MacOSX executables are available from
ftp://ftp.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/blast/executables/LATEST  The BLAST AMI at
AWS will also be updated to 2.2.30 (see
for information).
