I am pleased, no thrilled, to report that the Java and JS branches of Jalview, after some time apart, have been reunited on the Jalview-JS/develop branch. This now incorporates most changes for 2.11, as well as all adaptations for JalviewJS, and is therefore The Future. The Future can be found at
JalviewJS does pretty much everything that Jalview Java does, except:
- run web services (alignment etc)
- talk to Chimera
- load VCF data
- make the coffee - no wait, Jalview doesn’t do that either
It can read and write Jalview project files - but loading large projects (e.g. gene+features) is for now still prohibitively slow (minutes).
The remaining changes for 2.11 will be merged to develop and JalviewJS as they are signed off.
After 2.11 release we should then have a single unified codebase.
Meanwhile, please let me know if you spot any strange behaviour!
