Dear Velvet users,

Torsten Seeman and David Powell from Monash University have been
cleaning up Velvet code, available as usual on github or

They cleaned up the parsing code, added some unit tests, but especially
added a feature which many people have clamored for a long time: the
interleaving of paired-end files is no longer necessary. By default,
Velvet's behavior stays the same but with the '-separate' flag, you can
now provide pairs of files, as in:

velveth Assem 31 -shortPaired -fasta -separate left.fa right.fa

Many thanks to Torsten and David for their work,

Best regards,
