Jalview's services will be unavailable from 17:00 GMT on Thurs 9 Dec until 9:00 on Monday 13 Dec 2021.

The downtime is due to major network engineering, and affects all of the Jalview and Barton group web servers.
If you urgently require Jalview analysis services during this period, we recommend you install the JABAWS virtual appliance and configure your Jalview desktop preferences so it can access it.

Fuzzy fonts in the alignment view on OSX Mojave (10.14.x)

On OSX Mojave, you may notice that sequences and IDs in the Jalview alignment window are hard to read. To fix this, first:

1. Save your work and shut down Jalview

2. Open a Terminal window (use spotlight or the Launcher and type 'Terminal' to locate the Terminal App), and type:


  defaults write -g CGFontRenderingFontSmoothingDisabled -bool NO

3. Start Jalview again and load an alignment to check that the fonts are now legible.

Thanks to Marcin for reporting this issue and testing the workaround via issues.jalview.org/browse/JAL-3134
