We are pleased to announce the release of Galaxy 22.05.
- Developer and admin release announcement
- User release announcement
A few release highlights are:
The New History is Here
After years of effort by the development team and community contributors,
the new history is finally here. It's a big improvement over the old
might take some getting used to. It has a lot of great new features like:
- A quick switcher, letting you switch between recent histories
- Easily find dataset inputs
- Improved history search interface
Check it out now!
Storage Dashboard (Beta)
Have you ever been over your quota? 250 GB sure goes fast! Now with the new
Storage Dashboard you can get a quick overview of ways to help clean up
deleted datasets and recover some of that quota allocation. This is a beta
version of this interface, let us know if you have any issues. In future
versions, it will be expanded to help you understand how your allocation is
being used, and which histories and datasets should be cleaned up first.
Bulk History Operations
The new history allows for improved bulk operations, selecting dozens or
hundreds of datasets to retag or change the database key automatically, a
process that used to require using collections or doing them one by one.
Deferred dataset resolution enables running workflows and tools without
importing data into Galaxy first
It is now possible to defer dataset resolution for datasets imported via
URLs and the "Choose remote files" dialog. This means that the deferred
dataset will only be downloaded as it is needed during job execution.
Deferred datasets will not count towards your storage quota, as the data is
not stored by Galaxy. To enable deferred dataset resolution click on
"Settings" in the upload dialog.
You can now see all invocations of a specific workflow, across all of your
This is especially useful if you run a single workflow across multiple
datasets, and keep them nicely separated in multiple histories. You can see
all of the results in a single centralised location.
Additional workflow improvements have been made, e.g. numbering of steps in
a workflow. Improvements have been made to the internal representation of
the workflow that should make the saved .ga and .gxwf.yml files easier to
compare across changes.
Workflows can also now be zoomed in and out via scrolling, this interface
should be more familiar for anyone who has used Google Maps:
Do you use the Rule Based Uploader (RBU)? (If not, learn how today!
The RBU now has a very convenient recently used rule listing, sorted by how
recently they were used. You can hover over each entry to also list a
preview of what steps were done in that RBU invocation.
The scratchbook has been updated to a new implementation. Now your views of
datasets can overlap, you have much more freedom in the size of each
window, and you can minimize datasets like minimizing a window to the
taskbar in Windows.
The Galaxy API is going through an upgrade to FastAPI, which allows us to
generate OpenAPI documentation <https://usegalaxy.org/api/docs>. If you're
an API consumer, either via BioBlend or via another system, you can use
this to see all of the APIs available from Galaxy and try them out live.

a lot more details and instructions for upgrading your Galaxy installation.
Thanks for using Galaxy!
