Deprecation Notices

The Mercurial repository at https://bitbucket.org/galaxy/galaxy-dist is deprecated. We recommend deployers to switch their instances to git and follow the master branch of GitHub repository https://github.com/galaxyproject/galaxy Details are available at https://galaxyproject.org/develop/source-code/ The next few releases will still be available on Bitbucket, but they may be less up to date than the corresponding GitHub branches.

The old UI of Data Libraries is deprecated and will be removed in the next release of Galaxy. The current Data Libraries Beta will replace it. The Data Library menu items were renamed accordingly.

The graphview visualization is deprecated and will be replaced in the next release of Galaxy.

The direct access to Tool Shed repositories through the Mercurial API is deprecated. It will be removed in a future release. Please use Planemo for uploading to the TS instead.
