The version which was not one

A new version of Bio++ (2.0.2) has been released. It is however only distributed as debian packages, as it was created mostly for the purpose of testing the integration to debian (see the wiki for more details and for example). A full release (2.0.3), including additional bug fixes will be generated soon.
