[Slackbuilds-users] abandoning jalview

hi to all,

I am abandoning this:

The reasons:

It has an installer
(http://www.jalview.org/Web_Installers/install.htm) and extracting the
contents from the installer required an old version of p7zip. This
caused p7zip to be stuck with that old version at SBo for quite some
time. Finally, I decided to host it myself at sourceforge as a tar.gz
-- this means that I have to keep an old version of p7zip and
repackage and upload the 'source' to SF every time there's an update
from upstream. Too much of a hassle...
