MacClade... From the author

Kip Will passed along the MacClade query to me, and here's the scoop:

MacClade 3 is temporarily unavailable, as Sinauer ran out of copies of
manual.  They have decided to distribute 3.08 as CD-only; that is, there
will be no printed manual (although apparently the Excerpts from the
containing the introductory chapters, will be included as a hard copy).
The reason they are not printing more version 3 manuals is that we hope
have version 4 released later this year, and they don't want a back-log
version 3 manuals.  Sinauer is currently preparing the 3.08 CD.  I
it will be available soon, but I do not know the details.

The updater to convert MacClade 3.0-3.07 into MacClade 3.08 is already
available on MacClade's web site at

Version 4 will come in both 68K and PowerPC versions, and will (perhaps
version 4.01) be MacOS X friendly.  Version 4 has many changes to the
interface, and significant improvements in the data editor (including
tools for manipulating molecular sequence data), with a few additions to
the tree window.

Best wishes,

The grand fact of the natural subordination of organic beings in groups
under groups, which, from its familiarity, does not always sufficiently
strike us, is in my judgment thus explained.  -Darwin
