It has been a long time coming, but I can finally announce that the next version of Jalview: version 2.7, can now be downloaded from the Jalview web site.
Major highlights in the new Jalview Desktop:
* improved handling of PDB structures involved in many alignments
* revised JABAWS web service GUI and a new alignment analysis service
* additional option for sorting alignments directly from the Tree viewer
* Jalview desktop news
What lies ahead ?
Version 2.7 of Jalview contains a great many changes under the hood, which pave the way for some new features in the 2.7.x series, including new web services and facilities for visualizing RNA secondary structure.
We hope to release Jalview 2.7.1 in a few months, which will build on these new features. Until then, keep watching www.jalview.org for the latest news, and if you find any bugs, or would simply like to help out, just say hello on the Jalview discussion list (http://www.jalview.org/mailman/listinfo/jalview-discuss).
Happy Jalviewing !
Jim Procter, for the Jalview Team.
