  • 20.08.2010: version 2.0 is online.

    There is now a plugin system, which allows programmers to add their own (Ensembl) species and support other file formats than the built-in. Plugin examples are available in the Sourceforge repository, under files/misc/plugin_examples.zip. Application cache content must be deleted in order to avoid incompatibilities with previous versions.
    • bugs fixed:
      • 2944537 : BED track stacked mode was incorrectly displayed.
      • 2941083 : BED track display was out of range.
      • 2887226 : zoom when double-clicking was disabled.
    • features implemented:
      • 3028826 : support for Mouse is now built-in.
      • 3029454 : support for command-line arguments (internal use only).
      • 3032044 : local and network files are loaded in the same way (network files are not saved anymore in the cache directory).
      • 3032046 : gzip files are supported (but not zip).
      • 3036990 : plugin framework implemented.
      • 3038684 : most of the SNP related features are hidden when using -d command-line flag.
      • 1994839 : tracks in the track management panel can be moved using drag and drop.

    20.01.2010: version 1.7 is online

    As usual, several new features and bug fixes.
    • bugs fixed:
      • 2896502 : memory selection in the Java Web Start link was not working under MacOS X.
      • 2884539 : incorrect vertical scale for wiggle tracks.
      • 2882320 : some external links were broken.
    • features implemented:
      • 2082477 : connection to the latest version of Ensembl.
      • 2590067 : vertical autoscale for score tracks.
      • 2590076 : bed lines in a track can be stacked.
      • 2887046 : multiple files of the same type can be loaded at the same time.
      • 2891969 : DNA sequence for a specific region can be displayed.
      • 2900421 : external link to KEGG added.
  • 19.10.2009: version 1.6 is online

    Support for exporting to vector file formats has been removed due to persistant bugs. Bitmap formats should be OK.
    • bugs fixed:
      • 2824686 : session reset was not fully working.
      • 2825232 : it was not possible to save Manhattan plot.
      • 2844757 : bug in multiply aggregator.
    • features implemented:
      • 2821224 : add publication in About menu.
      • 2820618 : switch type of display for wiggle tracks.
      • 2820617 : add a new score file format.
      • 2820616 : improve file import.
      • 2820615 : standardize track cache design.
      • 2798315 : add tracks via URL.
  • 1.9.2009: version 1.6 beta is online

    It is for testing purpose only, some bugs are known (printing/exporting is broken) and some features are not yet functional (Manhattan plots are not working). Most of the changes are not visible, but some new features are:
    • Wiggle track display can be switched from bar to points
    • a new type of track can be used: a multi score track, loaded from a csv file
    • most tracks are vertically resizable (by putting mouse cursor in either top and bottom margins, and by pressing and dragging left mouse button)
  • 14.7.2009: version 1.5.1 is online.

    It is a hotfix for several bugs, the main one concerning Manhattan plots.
    • bugs fixed:
      • 2820676 : Manhattan plots were not displayed correctly.
      • 2798349 : displaying SNPs in BED track was only partially working.
      • 2355770 : keyboard shortcuts were a bit messy.
      • 2820781 : zooming in below 1 nucleotide per visible track was possible and was blocking other browsing operations.
      • 2820823 : problem for scrolling when too close to the 1 nucleotide/visible track limit.
  • 8.7.2009: version 1.5 is online.

    The most important change is that Hapmap dropped support for NCBI build 35 human genome assembly. Data using this coordinate system will still be able to connect to Ensembl/Biomart but not to Hapmap (therefore no LD plots or list of associated SNPs are available).
    • bugs fixed:
      • 2816294 : potential bug when checking external data sources.
      • 2816154 : bug concerning recent Hapmap changes.
    • features implemented:
      • 2728254 : new format (XML) supported for time series, see AssociationViewer PDF documentation for specifications.
      • 2590069 : empty tracks (no data on the selected chromosome) are not displayed.
      • 2378292 : new library (FreeHEP) brings new export features for both bitmap and vector formats.
      • 1969368 : this is linked to the previous new feature. Vector formats can be used to increase export resolution.
  • 21.4.2009: version 1.4 is online.

    Several new features were implemented. As usual, possible bugs may be reported using the the sourceforge bug tracker. Emptying the cache content is as always a good idea.
  • 23.01.2009: version 1.3.1 is online.

    This is a hotfix for the following bugs (including one potentially critical). Please update the application and empty your cache content before starting this version.

    The major change is an updated connection to Ensembl 52.
