Welcome to the Jalview Desktop news channel

This the first post on the Jalview Desktop news channel, which is made available as an RSS feed monitored by a news reader built in to the Jalview Desktop.

We use the desktop news channel to keep you informed of important updates relevant to users of the Jalview desktop. The news reader will be launched automatically when you start the Desktop if new items are available. Should you want to browse older items, however, you can open it manually from the ‘Jalview news reader’ option in the Desktop’s ‘Tools’ menu.


The Jalview news reader was introduced in Jalview version 2.7. Its implementation is based on JSwingReader.
