An extensive and rapidly growing collection of richly annotated phylogenetics data is now available in the NeXML format. NeXML relies on state-of-the-art data exchange technology to provide a format that can be both validated and extended, providing a data quality assurance and adaptability to the future that is lacking in other formats. See Vos et al 2012 for further details on the NeXML format.Release Notes
This release addresses several aspects improving the handling of metadata:
add_meta()now works for trees and characters (#213, PR #217)
rootEdge(#207, PR #218)
taxadbmethod. (#224, PR #226). This remains only a suggested package and has much lighter dependencies as well.
