v16.07 Galaxy Release Github


On behalf of the Galaxy Core and Contributor team (and community), Thanks for using Galaxy!

Posted to the Galaxy News on 2016-08-25

GalaxyProject


The Galaxy Committers team is pleased to announce the April 2016 (v16.04) release of Galaxy.


Please note that Python 2.6 is no longer supported as of this release. See the 16.04 release announcement for details.


Highlights

Tool Profile Versions

Tools may now declare which version of Galaxy they require. Tools requiring 16.04 or newer will have new default behaviors (such as using exit code for error detection) that should simplify tool development. See PR #1688.

Embedded Pulsar Job Runner

Galaxy can now start a Pulsar application embedded within the Galaxy process itself. This allows using Pulsar’s job staging and isolation without requiring a RESTful web service or a message queue. This is enabling usegalaxy.org to run jobs to on the new JetStream cloud. See PR #2057.

New Chemical Datatypes

Galaxy now detects and supports many molecular datatypes. See PR 1941. Thanks to Björn Grüning (@bgruening).

See the full release notes.

The Galaxy Committers team is pleased to announce the January 2016 (v16.01) release of Galaxy.

Galaxy administrators should also be aware of the security announcements linked to below.

Highlights

Interactive Tours

The interactive tours framework allows developers and deployers to build interactive tutorials for users superimposed on the actual Galaxy web front end. Unlike video tutorials, these will not become stale and are truly interactive (allowing users to actually navigate and interact with Galaxy). Galaxy 16.01 ships with two example tours and new ones can easily be added by creating a small YAML file describing the tour. Try the Galaxy UI tour on Main.

Wheels

Galaxy’s Python dependencies have traditionally been distributed as eggs using custom dependency management code to enable Galaxy to distribute binary dependencies (enabling quick downloads and minimal system requirements). With this release all of that infrastructure has been replaced with a modern Python infrastructure based on pip and wheels. Work done as part of this to enable binary dependencies on Linux has been included with the recently released pip 8.

Detailed documentation on these changes and their impact under a variety of Galaxy deployment scenarios can be found in the Galaxy Framework Dependencies section of the Admin documentation.

Nested Workflows

Workflows may now run other workflows as a single abstract step in the parent workflow. This allows for reusing or subworkflows in your analyses.

Deprecation Notices

Barring a strong outcry from deployers, 16.01 will be the last release of Galaxy to support Python 2.6. For more information, see Galaxy Github Issue #1596.



Security Announcements

Read/write arbitrary filesystem paths, arbitrary code execution

Multiple security vulnerabilities were recently discovered in Galaxy that allow malicious actors to read and write files on the Galaxy server. Additionally, Galaxy servers on which a rarely used feature has been enabled are vulnerable to an arbitrary code execution exploit.

This issue affects all known releases of Galaxy in at least the last 3 years. See the full announcement for details.

Tool Shed Security Vulnerability - Read/write arbitrary filesystem paths

Multiple security vulnerabilities were recently discovered in the Tool Shed that allow malicious actors to read and write files on the Tool Shed server outside of normal Tool Shed repository directories.

This issue affects all known releases of Galaxy in at least the last 3 years. See the full announcment for details.

Complete Release Notes

Highlights

  • Release Versioning

    • Starting with this distribution, an updated Galaxy release versioning system has been implemented. The versioning scheme is Ubuntu-style.

    Github

    • Galaxy development has moved to Github, but stable/release changes are mirrored to Bitbucket. Deployers can continue to use Bitbucket as they have done in the past. Release branches discussed in the full release notes.

    Tool Redesign

    • Much of Galaxy’s core tool set has been redesigned. Several contain new functionality. These tools are included in the Tool Shed and many are ready for use on Galaxy Main.

Highlights

Security

Several critical security vulnerabilities were recently discovered by Bartlomiej Balcerek and colleagues at the Wroclaw Centre for Networking and Supercomputing. This stable Galaxy release contains fixes for those vulnerabilities. The Galaxy Team strongly encourages Galaxy server administrators to update their Galaxy servers immediately.

IPython Integration

Thanks to the awesome work of community members Björn Grüning and Eric Rasche, Galaxy now features integration with the popular IPython project. The Galaxy-IPython project has been merged into Galaxy core and made into a generic plugin framework of interactive environments based on Docker.

Tool Form Upgrade (for Beta Testing)

In Galaxy's development branch, the basic tool from has been redesigned and modernized to address certain limitations in Galaxy's responsiveness when working with longer forms containing multiple parameter choices. This new tool form will become the default with the next release - but we are hoping tool author's and power users enable it and provide feedback during this release cycle in order to ensure it is working ideally when it becomes the default.
