We've just uploaded the patch release for version 2.9. It addresses a dozen or so minor issues in the desktop and applet, including linked editing of cDNA and Protein alignments and exchange of alignment data embedded in HTML pages. It's also the first release distributed as a signed OSX disk image, which (should) provide trouble free installation on all Macs.
We are very pleased to announce that Jalview version 2.8.2 is now available (just in time for our Jalview course in London on 15th December!).
Unfortunately, due to a configuration error whilst we updated our drupal servers, the Jalview desktop and applet were unavailable for a short period of time, but are now back.
