Important Upcoming Changes to Tool Organization:

The Emboss tools and Emboss datatypes will be eliminated from the Galaxy distribution in the NEXT release. Other tools currently in the Galaxy distribution will be eliminated in following releases. Those hosting local Galaxy instances should read this revised "Migrating tools" section of the Galaxy tool shed wiki to understand how this process will work:

Migrating tools from the Galaxy distribution to the Galaxy Main tool shed

(Summary) In 2012, the Galaxy development team will begin the process of migrating the tools that are currently available in the Galaxy distribution to the Galaxy Main tool shed. This will enable those that host local Galaxy instances much more flexibility in choosing to provide only those specific tools in which their users are interested. Read more...

  •  RNA-Seq Tools: Added CuffMerge version 1.0.0, Updated TopHat default parameters
  •  Visualize ENCODE  "peak" datatype tracks in the Galaxy Track Browser (aka Trackster)
  •  Multiple Workflow updates including enhancements to/input dataset options, display modes, and sharing
