Dear all,

A new testing version of ape (3.4-0.3) is available. It includes three main new features:

- A new data class, "AAbin", to store amino acid sequences; there are eleven new functions to generate and manipulate them including translation from DNA.

- The function checkAlignment does some diagnostics on a DNA alignment.

- Some extra plotting functions built on ape's basic plotting functions (plot.phylo, nodelabels, phydataplot, ring) for a specific task. For the moment, there are two such functions: drawSupportOnEdges() and plotBreakLongEdges().

Information on the new functions can be found at:

And instructions on how to get and install the testing version here:

A Windows version is available.
