Thanks for the update, spirit.

Maybe you could give us a little bit of information on Zoom, as well, since things may have changed since last time I heard anything about it.

What are the longest and shortest reads it can handle effectively?
how does it compare to Eland or MAQ in reads aligned per minute?
How many mismatches does it handle?
Does it have a gapped mode?
What format is required for the reference genome?
What format are the alignments reported in?
Can you comment on the cost/licenses it will be provided under?
Can you give us the link to the download when it's ready?

I'm sure I'm missing other important information, but those are the first questions that occur to me.
