2012 was quite a year here at jalview.org. A number of long running projects finally bore fruit with the launch of our new website and logo, and the release of Jalview Version 2.8. The November release of Jalview was the first to support JABAWS 2, which was launched in December 2011, and to include RNA visualization features developed by our 2010 and 2011 Google Summer of Code students: Lauren Lui and Jan Engelhart.
We are very pleased to announce that Jalview 2.8 is now available from our brand new website at www.jalview.org.
Highlights in Jalview Version 2.8 include:
* Improved JABAWS client and new JABAWS 2.0 Services for alignment, conservation, and protein disorder prediction
* Support for RNA annotation manipulation and visualization on the alignment and via the embedded VARNA viewer
The new look website includes the new Jalview logo, and features blogs for training, community and Jalview development news. If you have any comments or suggestions, then we'd love to hear from you!
