We are pleased to announce the *release of Galaxy 19.01
A few release highlights are:
Revised UI Style
The Galaxy stylesheet has been substantially reworked resulting in the
largest visual refresh to Galaxy in years.
More Colorful Tags
Use consistently hashed randomized colors for history dataset name tags to
increase visual distinction between tags, making it easier to track data
flow in complex histories. Thanks to @erasche <https://github.com/erasche>
Extensive Workflow Enhancements (continued)
Galaxy 18.09 featured a bunch of important and diverse fixes and
enhancements to workflows on both the frontend and backend. That progress
continues in release 19.01.
The workflow editor now features explicit step parameter nodes for non-file
data (integers, strings, booleans, etc) and the ability to connect these to
all tool inputs - not just files. The YAML-based Galaxy Format 2 workflow
language is now included in Galaxy as a beta option and allows import and
export of human readable workflows as well as extensions to allow Galaxy to
serve as a file editor for such workflows. The workflow editor features
more helpful labels on inputs and outputs and important fixes including
logic for connecting collections and dealing with missing tools. The
workflow run form now deals with default values more correctly.
Enhanced Support for Singularity
container support in Galaxy has
been brought to parity with Docker container support. Specifically, Galaxy
can now be configured to fetch Biocontainers <https://biocontainers.pro/>
automatically for enabled job destinations. Moreover, explicitly annotated
Docker containers (either in tools or job destinations) can be used with
Singularity. Thanks to @mvdbeek <https://github.com/mvdbeek>
