May 2019 Galaxy Release (v 19.05)¶
Tools can now be marked as favorites, and then they’ll be easily accessible from the star button in your tool panel.
Workflow Editor Connection Feedback
The editor now provides feedback on why connections are invalid, so you aren’t left wondering why two tools won’t connect. For complex data pipelines this should greatly simplify your life!
