What’s new in version 7.7.1

Updated on Feb 11 2017

Version 7.7.1:
New features and improvements
  • All NCBI server communication is now encrypted. (NCBI will be moving all web services to the HTTPS protocol on September 30, 2016).
  • The list of enzymes pre-installed in the workbench has been updated from REBASE.
  • The Quick Launch tool is now found under the Toolbox menu instead of the View menu and a button called Launch that brings up this tool has been added to the toolbar.
  • The option "is not in list" has been introduced as a new table filtering option.
  • The "Sort folder" tool now uses numerical sorting for filenames prefixed with a number.
  • New placeholders are available when defining the names of exporter outputs: {user}, {host}, and for elements of the timestamp of the output object, {year}, {month}, {day}, {hour, {minute}, {second}.
  • Placeholders within export output names that were previously available only as digits can now be specified using written names: {input} is a synonym for {1}, {extension} is a synonym for {2} and {counter} is a synonym for {3}.
  • GenBank import now also allows for file names with 'GBFF' extension.
  • Read group details are now shown on the Element Info view of sequence lists.
Bug fixes
  • Fixed a rare issue where some annotations could, but did not necessarily, go missing on sequences with greater than 1000 annotations of a given type on that sequence before the deletion and where the right-click context menu option "Delete selection" was used.
  • Fixed a bug in the "Manage Enzymes" wizard that prevented a user from cancelling the action if "Save as new enzyme list" was enabled.
  • Fixed an issue with the Import Metadata tool where, if a spreadsheet had already been loaded, then selecting the same spreadsheet again did not reload the spreadsheet content.
  • Fixed an issue where it took a long time to open a workbench it it was previouslyclosed when displaying an open table editor that had been sorted.
  • Fixed an issue where right-clicking on a graph in a report and choosing to show "Report", "History" or "Element Info" triggered an error.
  • Various minor bugfixes.
