Dear ASReml users,

As we move towards the release of ASReml 2.00 in 2005, we invite
and regular ASReml users to try out beta version 1.62 on the understanding
that you will report any problems (through VSN) clearly indicating that
relate to the beta version.

You need a current ASReml 1.10 license to use the beta version (1.62)
Beta version 1.62 will cease operating in March 2005, when you can
either revert to 1.10 or upgrade to a later version.

The enclosed ReadMe.txt file summarises changes that have been introduced
in version 1.62. Many of these have been suggested by users and your
further suggestions are welcome.

The PC, 32bit Sun and 32bit Linux implentations may be downloaded from
the download web page (

There is also a draft of the ASReml Reference manual there which contains
additional information on the enhancements.
Notice that there are some things in the reference manual which were
from the user guide and from the readme file. These are not advertised
they have not been adequately tested, or are not widely accepted. We
recommend you avoid these; at least ask us about them before using and/or
publishing anything based on them.

Best wishes in the Name of Christ Jesus,
the Saviour of all who believe.
