Hello Galaxy Users,
The Galaxy development team is starting a new initiative for
communicating important announcements about Galaxy to our users. We
will be sending announcements like this one to the galaxy-user(a)bx.psu.edu
email list, so if you are interested in receiving these announcements, please be sure to
subscribe to this list. We are also in the process of adding a "News" page to
our Galaxy wiki documentation, so some announcements will be available there as well.
Here are the highlights of the new features that are currently available
on our Galaxy test environment at http://test.g2.bx.psu.edu/

Enhanced LAJ Tool
We have added a dialog box for filtering the input data. This
eliminates a problem we were having with integer overflow.
Enhanced Build Lists of the Upload Tool and Edit Attributes
Build lists are now alphabetized (by display name) in edit attributes
and the upload tool.
We have made several miscellaneous improvements throughout the
application, including (but not limited to) better descriptions of
errors encountered with invalid data source files (even more
improvements coming in this area).
As stated above, we'll continue to contact you with new about important
Galaxy enhancements and updates.
Thanks very much,
The Galaxy Development Team
