When possible, a smaller protein lookup table is used to improve performance. formatrpsdb now supports creating databases larger than 2G. seedtop now supports searches with gi lists. The X3 value for blastn/megablast was corrected.
Release Notes: The previously experimental improved search algorithms are now used by default. The Mac OS X build is now a universal binary. Multithreaded searches now work properly under ia32-win32. The sparc64-solaris build now requries Solaris 10. Support for axp64-tru64 is deprecated.
Release Notes: Support for large search word sizes and multiple searches has been added. There are some code speedups.
Release Notes: XML output has been brought in sync with the text output, masking filtered locations in query sequences. The graphic overview is now implemented in HTML. Query-anchored views now work with blastx/tblastn/tblastx. PHI-BLAST patterns are shown in the query-anchored view. The formatter has been rewritten from scratch using the NCBI C++ toolkit.
