Thank you very much for the awesome post! Just a few comments.

1. In a commercial package, NCGR uses GMAP ( to alignment Solexa reads. GMAP is free, though.

2. Synamatix has SXOligoSearch ( It is commercial and from the online decription it looks very promising.

3. SOAP ( by Ruiqiang Li, as has been pointed by ECO.

4. Maq is also able to find SNPs with its own alignment. It has a graphical viewer, but again for its own alignment format.

5. Illumina has a software list: But most of the listed softwares have been quoted here. :-)

6. Anthony Fejes discussed some softwares in his blog ( May be helpful to someone, too.

7. SSAHA has been optimized for short-reads, too. But yes, SSAHASNP appears in your "SNP/INDEL discovery" category.

8. Ladeana from Gabor's group has recently published a paper on Nature Methods, using their MASAIC and PolyBayesShort.
