     - The use of hints has been documented.

List of changes from version 1.3 to version 1.4 (after 06/04):

     - New species: Arabidopsis thaliana.
     - More standard, user friendly program call. No need to specify a configuration file anymore.
     - Fixed bug for the emission probabilities of exonpart pitchfork hints in exons which are supported
       by exonpart hints. Now AUGUSTUS has an incentive to predict an exon which is as small as possible even
       when an exonpart hint supports it.
     - Fixed rare bug with exon state at end of DNA.
     - Optimized meta parameters for human.

List of changes from version 1.2 to version 1.3:

     - avoid predicting exons with in-frame stop codons at the splice sites
     - accuracy of extrinsic information can now be checked on multi-gene sequences

List of changes from version 1.0 to version 1.2:

     - Added reference information to the text output.
     - Bugfix: The last line of an input file which contains no newline at the end was
       read twice.
