Ensembl and Ensemblgenomes REST services combining

The link below describes plans to combine REST services for Ensembl and EnsemblGenomes (late March / early April).

I’ve emailed to ask for more details.

For Jalview, it may be as simple as asking users to add


to their properties file on the switch-over date.

Note that Jalview code as it stands won’t follow an HTTP redirect if one was set up for this (JAL-1054, JAL-2745), so relying on that is not a solution.
