- The pathway for benzoate has been updated.[UPATHWAYID:'benz2_map']

- UM-BBD ChemAxon applets (MarvinSketch used in UM-BBD structure 
  searching and UM-PPS structure entry, and MarvinView used in 
  UM-PPS results display) have been updated to version 5.3.4.
  These new applets require (free) Java 6 installed on user's
  computers. Users who have problems loading these applets 
  should update their Java version.

- The Pathway Prediction System (UM-PPS) has been updated with 
  version 2.0 software.  This update, over one year in development, 
  has undergone extensive beta testing by UM-BBD users representing 
  many different user groups.  New features include generation of 
  multi-step predictions, visualization of predictions as directed 
  acyclic graphs, removal of duplicate products, and grouping of 
  co-products.  A zoom feature permits easier viewing and printing 
  of the predictions.  UM-PPS version 2.0 is presently only 
  available at the US site.  The original version remains available 
  at the Swiss UM_PPS site.

- On the Links  page, a link has been updated for search of 
  National Academy Press.
