News/Chado 1.23 released

Jump to: navigation, search

From Scott Cain:

I've just released Chado 1.23. This is a bug fix release with no changes to the schema from the 1.22 release. If you are upgrading from Chado 1.2 or later, installing this bug fix release is easy; type the following commands:

  perl Makefile.PL
  sudo make install

If you're installing from before Chado 1.2, you can add

  make update

which should update the schema (after backing up your database, of course). See Updating Chado for more information. Chado 1.23 can be downloaded from SourceForge.

Here are the changes from the last release:

  • Added $VERSION to Bio::GMOD::DB::Config so that when installing Bio::DB::Das::Chado it would be happy.
  • Changed all perl script #! lines to use /usr/bin/env perl instead of the mishmash that was being used in various scripts.
  • Fixed the GFF3 preprocessor so that if an insert into the sorting table fails, the script will die to avoid losing GFF lines in the resulting file.
  • Modified Makefile.PL so that if using PREFIX it won't stomp on the GMOD_ROOT environment variable (that is, everything goes in PREFIX, except what goes in GMOD_ROOT).
