Hello again BioC package maintainers,

As announced in my previous email, we have just created the BioC 2.1
release branch in svn. This means that now you have access to 2 separate
versions of your package in subversion:

- the release version under


- and the devel version under


For all the packages that are going into the release, the version number (x.y.z)
was bumped: y is even for the release version and y is odd for the devel version.

>From this point forward, all bug fixes for the release must be committed to the
release version of your package. Non-release development can begin again on its
devel version.

Instructions for updating a package in the release branch are here:


Please let us know by posting here if you have any question.
