GenomeView 1.8 released

This releases features a major redesign of the plugin architectures that uses the JPF framework more properly and can account for dependencies between the different plugins. Together with this release we have also released two completely new plugins and we have updated the two plugins that were already available. The two new plugins are for NCBI Blast and for SpliceMachine (a splice site prediction program).

Another big chance is the branching of the JAnnot package. All reusable data handling methods like parsers and data structures for biological sequences now reside in a separate project.

We've also done a number of small improvements and bug fixes:

  • You can now query selections at EBI
  • Upgraded to AJT-1.23 to fix a bug
  • Improved the help menu
