(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
