DAG-Edit 1.418-beta5 released

DAG-Edit 1.418-beta5 is now available. Get it from:

Since this is a beta version, it will be listed under the "DAG-Edit betas" 

This version features tons of bug fixes (especially for windows machines) and 
features some interesting new features:

* Graph visualization - with the help of AT&T's GraphViz package, the new 
Graph Viewer Plugin can render your ontology as a directed graph.

* obodiff - The obodiff script takes two .obo files and does a logical diff on 
their contents. This script is actually comparing the content of the 
ontologies (not the structure of the files), so should provide MUCH more 
useful results than a standard diff.

* obomerge - The obomerge script takes three .obo files (a base file, and then 
two changed versions of the base file) and merges those changes into a fourth 
file. This is exactly the way the cvs merge works, except that instead of 
just merging the text of the files, obomerge does a logical merge based on 
the contents of the ontology. This gives much better merge results than a 
standard unix merge.

Please let me know if you find any bugs. The quicker I get the bug reports on 
a beta version, the quicker I can release a final version.
