Patch Friday: Second Patch release for 2.9

Thank you to everyone who wrote letters of support last year for our application to the BBSRC, we should hear the outcome in the next couple of months.

We are now applying to the Wellcome Trust to renew funding to support Jalview's use in biomedical sequence analysis, including interpretation of genomic variation and long read RNA data (e.g. Nanopore) at the protein coding level. If you would like Jalview to continue to develop and be supported then please take a few minutes to write us a support letter saying how you use Jalview in your research/teaching.

Write as a PDF including your institution's heading and send to: by Friday 22nd March 2019.

Thank you!

Jalview 2.9.0b2 fixes a Desktop bug where group associated consensus and conservation annotation rows are duplicated when an alignment is partitioned by clicking on the tree viewer.

This version of Jalview is also the first to be provided as 'timestamped' signed jars. What this means is that Jalview 2.9.0b2 will always be allowed to run on systems that support Java, even after our Certum code signing certificate is no longer valid. Thanks to for providing a public timestamp server !
