GPMAW has existed since 1987, and since then new versions have been released at least once every year. For some time a new version was released every time a new feature was added, but IT-departments are not happy about too frequent updates. So a compromise has been made with a new release 9-12 month apart, and more frequent beta versions, that users with a valid license are free to download.
A list of previous releases going back to 2002 (not all links are active):
January 22, 2017. Some users still have problems accessing the NCBI server for downloading sequence files. If you can access UniProt sequences, the most likely cause is a problem in the Secure Socket Layer, which can be fixed by installing the two files libeay32.dll og ssleay32.dll. These have been added to the install files for 10.30 so either download and re-install this or download the latest beta version.
December 10, 2016. Version 10.30 had an error when calculating disulfide peptides and has been upgraded to 10.31. The time-stamp is identical so all users of 10.30 can upgrade to 10.31.
