I can't remember when that format version was first introduced but it was years ago.

What software package is the fastq_illumina_reads program from? Does it have a command line option to switch between the old and new FastQ sequence ID line formats?
Thanks for the info. I tried different ways, but they didn't work. That is the reason I started to look for the new information. And found this.
