Fwd: please follow footer link

Bowtie: An ultrafast, memory-efficient short read aligner: "Bowtie on GitHub - 4/11/13

* Bowtie source now lives in a public GitHub repository.

* 1.0.0 release - 4/9/13

- Finally, a 64-bit Windows binary!

- Due to general performance improvements spinlocking is now used by default. The EXTRA_FLAGS=-DNO_SPINLOCK may be used to reverse this during compilation.

- Fixed some race conditions.

- CygWin builds now use pthreads library.

- Changed MinGW to optionally use pthread library on Win32 platforms.

- Changed the Windows build to use native Windows threads by default.

- Renamed COPYING to LICENSE to be more GitHub-friendly.

- Tokenizer no longer has limit of 10,000 tokens, which was a problem for users trying to index a very large number of FASTA files.

- Removed references to no-longer-implemented --cutoff option for bowtie-build"
