We are pleased to announce the release of JSBML-1.3.1, which is now available for download from GitHub.
JSBML is a community-driven project to create a free, open-source, pure Java library for reading, writing, and manipulating SBML files and data streams. It is an alternative to the mixed Java/native code-based interface provided in libSBML.
For more details, please visit the JSBML project home page:
The main new feature in this release is the support for SBML Level 3 Version 2 and the development of the offline validator. We have also started to write some converters that transform SBML documents. In particular, a converter that expands function definitions that was requested several times by our community. Some very good progress were made on the offline validator, you can get a detailed report of what is left to be done in a separate wiki page. Since last release we made the offline validator more user friendly by provided error messages similar to libSBML with a first part that explain the specification and a second part that describe the element and why it failed the rule. We hope to have the offline validator complete by the end of next year when it will be used by default.
You can find a detailed list of the user-visible new features and bug fixes since JSBML version 1.2 on the NEWS file.
Thank you for your interest and support of JSBML and SBML in general.
The JSBML team.
