Macace 2.0b4 is now available by anonymous ftp.

MacAce is the Macintosh version of ACeDB and is available from
genome.lbl.gov (IP Address: in the directory

MacAce is also available at the European site cele.mrc-lmb.cam.ac.uk
(IP Address: The directory is ~ftp/pub/acedb/macace.
European users have reported that transfers from this site are
signifcantly faster than from genome.

MacAce requires System 7 and runs on all Macintosh models with
a 68030, 68040 or PowerPC processor.

There are a number of new features in this version:

* Native PowerPC Application
* Greatly improved printing
* Many Internal Bug Fixes
* C. Elegans Data Release 2.10 (Thanks Richard!)

The application and the C. Elegans data (release 2.10) are in
the self-extracting archive MacAce2.0b4_Complete.sea.bin.

The self-extracting archive (MacAce2.0b4_App_Update.sea.bin)
contains the latest version of the macace Application and its
wspec files. Only download this if you were using MacAce and have
the release 2.10 database. If you already have the database
you do not need to fetch the big file. Please be sure that you
update both the application and the wspec folder. Do not use
old wspec folders with the new version of the code.

There are 3 partially redundant applications of macace in this archive:

MacAce.68k for your good old 680x0 mac
MacAce.ppc for your new fast powerPC box
MacAce.fat, in so-called "fat-binary" contains both 680x0 and PowerPC code

All three flavors are identical in functionality. We recommend using
the fat binary, but if space is at a premium, you can use the smaller
version for your processor.
