Hello All

I would like to announce seq-2.0.99, a beta release for 2.1.0.

The warning I issued in a previous mail regarding the future of this 
development branch is hereby happily *withdrawn*. By general consensus (of 
all interested parties) it was decided that I take over maintenance and 
further development of the sequencer. So, this branch *is* the new trunk, 
and it *will* be maintained and (hopefully) further improved.

The new sequencer home is at

	http://www-csr.bessy.de/control/SoftDist/sequencer/

The main differences to 2.0.98 are:

* converted the old Subversion repository at APS to darcs and re-based my
  changes on this repo

[NOTE: This means you should discard any clone you made of the repository 
and get a new copy (via darcs get), as it will not be possible to transfer 
patches form one to the other without major conflicts. Sorry for any 
inconvenience this might cause -- I decided it is more important that we 
have a continuous history in the repo.]

* integrated the few changes that were made in this repo after 2.0.12
* major rework of the documentation, convert docs sources to
  reStructuredText, use `Sphinx`_ to generate new website from the docs
* some minor cleanups, but otherwise no changes were made to the code

(Many thanks to the people who created Sphinx. What this tool does to some 
drab (almost) plain text files is simply fantastic.)

.. _Sphinx: http://sphinx.pocoo.org/

Please go ahead and test this beta release. I don't expect any serious 
issues but one never knows... I am certainly going to do more testing myself 
and continue to work on the manual. The idea is to release 2.1.0 as soon as 
I am reasonably confident it contains no major bugs.

The manual might still contain major foul-ups. Don't hesitate to bring them 
to my attention.

There remains some work to do before I can continue working on further 
improvements: mainly integrating the changes made at DESY (the redundant IOC 
stuff) and further bringing the manual up-to-date.


Andrew, could you please update the links on the EPICS home page to point to 
the new sequencer home?

Cheers & happy sequencing
Ben
