This update's highlights:

 * PAL has can now be compiled out of the box into true native code
   (just like C++ !!) using the GNU compiler for Java (gcj), part of
   recent releases of gcc.  Makefiles and instructions are provided.
 
 * Direct support for the Windows platform is available

 * The entire source code is now fully documented using JavaDoc comments

 * Detail improvements in a number classes, most importantly in the
   ones dealing with the evaluation of evolutionary hypotheses
   (chi-square and likelihood criteria)

 * Clock-tree constraints are supported throughout (for example, in
   least-squares and maximum-likelihood estimation of branch lengths)
 
 * New applications:
 
	- UPGMA (computes UPGMA tree)
	- STRIPSITES (repeatedly strips fastest sites from an alignment)
