Workflows got a lot of love this time around, with new runtime parameters for
subworkflows, exposed workflow versions, and zoom capability in the editor, to
name a few. There were also a number of usability enhancements including better
labeling, links, overhauled workflow import interfaces, and many more.
Galaxy now contains powerful new features for multiple factor analysis of
collections of datasets. The concept of group tags has been added to Galaxy.
These are a special class of tags that describe key-value pairs that can be
attached to the contents of a collection during upload or using collection
operation tools. These tags can describe multiple sets of variables for the
contents of a collection. Once set, these tags can be consumed intelligently by
tools that need to divide collections into multiple overlapping factors or sets
of datasets. A special thanks to @mvdbeek for devising and implementing this
Python 3 Beta Support
After almost 3 years of work and more than 100 pull requests, we are proud to
announce the Beta-stage support for running Galaxy under Python 3. Lint, unit,
API, framework, integration and Selenium tests all pass, time for you to give
it a try and report any bug you find!
