News and Announcements regarding the Python Bioinformatics Toolkit, PyCogent

PyCogent 1.4.1 released

The PyCogent development team is proud to announce the release of PyCogent 1.4.1. This is a minor point release, but includes some exciting new features. Some of the notable additions are the new uclust application controller, which currently supports uclust v1.1.579, and major additions to the Cookbook documentation, courtesy of Tom Elliot. This release supports QIIME 1.0.0 and PyNAST 1.1, whose development teams partially overlap with the PyCogent development team, and which make extensive use of PyCogent.

For more details on the release you should check out the ChangeLog.
