Alan has completed the configuartion changes for 64 bits, and completed the new indexing code (to go live in 2.9.0). EMBOSS is working on Fedora, and MacOSx X11 graphics are working again.
Peter found and fixed the bug in "supermatcher". It was a multi-statement line which changed meaning ni the code cleanup. A thorough check showed no other such problems in the code.
Peter reported QA tests are running cleanly, and most memory leaks (all minor) have been fixed.
Alan and Peter will work through the outstanding emboss-submit contributions.
Jon has a new application "rocplot" (not yet committed) to produce statistics for the quality of prediction methods. Inputs are a list of ranked hits or mulitple lists of hits. Peter suggested making these two programs to make the definition of inputs and outpus for workflows and GUIs simpler.
The release should be by the end of the month.
Damian and Terry presented a DocBook introductory course this week.
Documentation is to be transformed into DocBook by the 3.0.0 release.
The list of emboss-bug and other queries was reviewed.
Next meeting to be held at 9.30 on November 28th 2003, Pompeiian Room, Hinxton Hall
