(In progress, not released yet) Biopython 1.62
-Nothing to mention so far.
-
Please note that this could be our last release to support Python 2.5.
+The handling of joins and related complex features in Genbank/EMBL files has
+been changed with the introduction of a CompoundLocation object. Previously
+a SeqFeature for something like a multi-exon CDS would have a child SeqFeature
+(under the sub_features attribute) for each exon. The sub_features property
+will still be populated for now, but is deprecated and will in future be
+removed. Please consult the examples in the help (docstrings) and Tutorial.
+
Additionally there have been other minor bug fixes and more unit tests.
Many thanks to the Biopython developers and community for making this release
