Apollo 2.0.5 Official Release

Some of the new features include:

  • Numerous UI and performance improvements, including easier navigation between annotated elements via the Annotator Panel.
  • Better server and client-side reporting.
  • Upgrade to Java 8 / GWT 2.8, and updated JBrowse (use ./apollo clean-all or install from an formal release download)
  • It is now possible to also include metadata on import.

Some important bug fixes:

  • Import script were logging preferences unnecessarily.
  • Improved security for non-public genomes.
  • Fixed for going between logged-out mode and the Annotator Panel while retaining history.
  • Improved display of sequence over the annotation after moving the annotation to the opposite strand.
  • Users will see a warning when it is not possible to create an intron with canonical splice sites in the selected region.
