FigTree v1.1

Andrew Rambaut has posted a message to the beast-users listserv, he's just released a new version of FigTree. Among other things this new version allows you to re-root trees (something I bugged him for a while back, as I'm sure others did as well). Perhaps even better, the source code has been released. With these new features, and now that others can conceivably add new bells and whistles, I suspect FigTree will remain the premier tree rendering software for some time.
