== GCC2016 Registration is Open ==

== Report on IUC Contribution Fest - Metagenomics Tools and Workflows ==

The [[https://github.com/galaxyproject/tools-iuc/issues/299|IUC Contribution Fest - Metagenomics Tools and Workflows]] was held on 30th of November and 1st of December for developers to work mainly on Galaxy metagenomic tools.

The remote nature of this gave people who don't have the opportunity to come to GCC hackathons (which have always been productive and a lot of fun) a chance to participate in a Galaxy hackathon. Having a well defined topic allowed us to accomplish a lot and let people who don't have particular tasks in mind find something to work on very quickly.

See [[https://github.com/galaxyproject/tools-iuc/issues/299|the event home page for more]].

Releases


https://pypi.python.org/pypi/planemo/

Planemo 0.19.0 - 0.21.1

Planemo saw a regular Oort cloud of activity in November with 3 releases.

Planemo is a set of command-line utilities to assist in building tools for the Galaxy project. Planemo 0.21.1 is the most recent release. See the release history.

Other Releases

GalaxyProject

CloudMan

  • This is the most complete update of the Galaxy on the Cloud platform to date with all the cloud components being built from the ground up. See the CHANGELOG for a complete set of changes or just give it a try: see the all new Getting Started documentation.

  • Security Advisories

    • Three security vulnerabilities were announced and patched in August. The Galaxy Committers have released a number of fixes which have been rolled in to affected versions of Galaxy dating back to the 14.10 release.

  • Pulsar

    • Pulsar 0.5.0 was released in May. Pulsar is a Python server application that allows a Galaxy server to run jobs on remote systems (including Windows) without requiring a shared mounted file systems. Unlike traditional Galaxy job runners - input files, scripts, and config files may be transferred to the remote system, the job is executed, and the results are transferred back to the Galaxy server - eliminating the need for a shared file system.

    CloudMan

    blend4j v0.1.2

    • blend4j v0.1.2 was released in December 2014. blend4j is a JVM partial reimplemenation of the Python library bioblend for interacting with Galaxy, CloudMan, and BioCloudCentral.
