Jalview 188.8.131.52 is the fourth patch release in the 2.11.1 series. One critical bug was fixed in this release - when Jalview would occasionally hang when viewing structures in Jmol. This release also introduces a number of new configuration options for disabling web service connections used by the Jalview Debian package.
Whilst the current release versions (2.11.1.*) of the Jalview installers run with a bundled Java 1.8 runtime environment, Jalview development is using Java 11 (a much more recent LTS version of Java), but is maintaining support for Java 1.8 especially for the current release versions.
Jalview 184.108.40.206 is the second patch release, fixing a bug introduced in the previous patch release (220.127.116.11) affecting display of Jalview's example project for some users.
- Fresh install of Jalview 18.104.22.168 reports "Encountered problems opening https://www.jalview.org/examples/exampleFile_2_7.jvp"
Jalview 22.214.171.124 provides patches for critical bugs affecting the Find function, and analysis of linked CDS and Protein alignments.

Jalview uses a launcher (called getdown, see https://github.com/threerings/getdown) that runs an auto-updater for Jalview and verifies Jalview files by checking the Jalview web site. Whilst the launcher checks for existing system proxy settings, sometimes it does not find those settings. In this case it may pop up a window asking for proxy settings. If this does not happen, and proxy settings are required, you can create a file called
