                    BIRCH Version A1.99

o miniBIRCH is now supported by birchconfig, the graphic
  install wizard. The install procedure for minibirch is
  almost identical to that for a complete BIRCH installation,
  with the addition that for miniBIRCH, the New Install window
  will have an additional 'miniBIRCH Master Directory' field. 
o New: ArrayNorm - Normalize raw gene array data, prior to analysis
o New: TIGR-TM4 Microarray programs: 
    ExpressConverter - converts array data to TIGR format
    MIDAS - Normalization and analysis
    MEV - Multi-experiment viewer for data mining
o New: weighbor: Neighbor-Joining program which produces more reliable
  trees than traditional NJ. Available as an option in GDE.
o Documentation pages for Packages and Programs now contain links
  to a glossary page which gives definitions for each field on the
  page.
o Treetool, the tree editor, is now available for all platforms.
  Previously, colormap issues prevented it from running on Solaris.
  Thanks to Eric Linton for fixing this problem.
o readseq has been upgraded to version 2.1.23.
o GDE has been upgraded to version 2.4.5. GDE 2.1.5, wrote some
  temporary files to /usr/tmp, which is not present on some Debian 
  systems. GDE 2.4.5 writes these files to /tmp, which is present on all
  Unix and Linux systems. 
o dapple has been removed from the BIRCH core distribution.
