Major update to the DB itself. Jan says, "The quite numerous changes reflect typographic changes (generic names should be treated just like species names, i.e. in "[]") and some new content, viz. classification data and red list categories (where available from published literature). I have seen some original (19th century) literature while I was at the University of Kentucky in Lexington last year, and a few long time problems have been resolved this way."

Changed the search engine to allow limiting searches to just cultivars, just accepted names, or to include pattern matching on all fields.

Added new version of Jan's database. This version now includes all listings with the ICPS as the CP International Registration Authority for cultivar names. These names appear out of the normal collating sequence for the database, as they are simply appended to the end of the nomenclatural database.
