This report on two ant genomes is recently published
DOI: 10.1126/science.1192428
Genomic Comparison of the Ants Camponotus floridanus and Harpegnathos saltator
I've not read this in detail but at a glance these genomes appear
to be like the 2 other hymenopera. The genome contig sequence are
available in the WGS section at NCBI: 26,840 contigs for
Harpegnathos, 32,174 for Camponotus.  I don't know if higher assemblies
or gene models are publicly available.
