Jalview 2.3

Hello Jalview users,

Jalview 2.3 is now ready and available to download from http://www.jalview.org

New Features in the latest release:

   * Jmol 11.0.2 integration.
     Jmol is an open source structure viewer written in Java, so fits naturally with Jalview. The integration allows all the features from the original Jalview Structure viewer, such as colouring structures from alignment colours and mouse over structure / alignment highlighting. Jmol 11.0.2 is not Java 1.1 compatible so Jmol applet will only run in Web Browsers with Java 1.4 plug-in or greater. If the web browser uses Java 1.1 only, the original Jalview Structure viewer is still available.

   * For the first time you will be able to save the structure view along with your alignments within the Jalview XML file format.

   * Slide sequences with cursor keys - very useful editing feature which has been missing from Jalview.

   * Edit sequence in place - another highly requested editing feature, allows residues/sequences to be altered in place.

   * EMBL CDS features - CDS regions marked on sequences retrieved using WsDBFetch sequence fetcher from EBI.

   * DAS Feature mapping

   * Feature ordering - layering of features on the alignment can be optimized by a button on the Feature Settings window.

   * Alignment Properties - View simple alignment statistics and predefined alignment properties.

   * Annotation Scores

   * Sort by scores - if scores exist in the alignment, Jalview will recognise them and allow the user to sort the sequences by the available scores.

   * Feature/annotation editing in applet - Previously only available in the application, but has proven to be very useful in web alignment editing tools.

   * Annotation file - extensions have been made to add alignment properties and scores to sequence and alignment annotations.
