January 2022 Galaxy Release (v 22.01)¶
New Colour Selector
Do you use tools which require colour inputs, like Circos? Previously we had a restricted colour input which gave you a very limited palette. Now, you have complete freedom of choice with the modern colour selector.
Improved File Export
If you’ve been exporting files from Galaxy lately, you’ve probably seen the amazing new remote file source export, which allows you to export files to FTP, Dropbox, and other locations.
Improved File Uploads
Previously, Galaxy servers used a variety of methods to let you upload large files easily, including some servers which required FTP for large files. We have replaced this with a new upload method, which will be enabled on all usegalaxy servers soon. This will make file uploads significantly smoother, and will be more tolerant of network failures and interruptions! You do not need to make any changes. See Pull Request 12656 for more information.
Beta History: Collection Improvements
If you’ve been trying out the beta history (which will be the default history next release!), it has been updated to indicate whether collections are homogeneous or heterogeneous. This will help you see more easily if you’ve accidentally included an incorrect dataset.
Thanks to @neoformit, a new R shiny app “iSEE” has been added, which provides a UI for visualization of single-cell RNA datasets. See Pull Request 12650 for more information
