If you previously downloaded either the base system or specialized packages, and intend to download new or updated packages, you should download new versions of all packages to ensure compatibility. (The base download now includes specialized packages such as Genesis, Coalescence and Rhetenor.)
There may be addenda or bug fixes since the versions released below. We don't have a sophisticated updating system in place yet; instead you may peruse the directory listing of the various addenda/bug fixes. The ReadMe files will explain the purpose of each addendum/bug fix. CHECK HERE to see the directory listing of addenda and bug fixes.
NOTE: version 0.995 is NOT compatible with modules written for previous versions of Mesquite. Thus, do not throw away your old copy of Mesquite if you need to use it with modules such as PDAP or Tree Set Visualization for which you do not have a recently released version. Contact the authors of these packages to find out if a compatible version is available.
