Dear all,

is the EMBOSS project still alive? I can't download the latest tarball (broken link), the mailing list manager is broken (so I cannot subscribe to ask the question), and their CVS server gives a time-out. Does anyone know?

Cheers,

Philip

A recurrence of Where did EMBOSS go?. Get the alternate downloads from the links in this thread.

Yes, this appears to be the case, thanks. BTW, I also got e-mail bounces from emboss@emboss.open-bio.org: 421 4.4.0 [internal] no MXs for this domain could be reached at this time (and also postmaster and webmaster).

I'll ask/notify the EBI people.

Cheers, Philip

EMBOSS is hosted under the OBF servers that also hosted bioperl, biopython, etc. There was a recent server breach detected that took most of the websites offline, including EMBOSS. We have many of the instances back up but EMBOSS is a key missing one (primarily b/c it was using static HTML and not a wiki instance). We expect it to be up at some point, but for the time being I suggest using the alternate download locations.

I'd have not thought so. Perhaps under a different URL? If you still encounter problems, you may try their support & feedback page.
