release notes

Version 3.2 (April 2021)

Limits GO files to OBO format. Support for RDF-XML has been dropped as the format we supported was deprecated by the GO consortium. If you need to run analyses using the old XML format you will have to use an older version of ErmineJ. Fixes a reported issue with OBO file parsing. Miscellaneous minor updates […]

Version 3.1.2 (May 2018)

This version adds support for the OBO file format for the Gene Ontology in addition to XML. In the future OBO is likely to be the recommended file type to use for ErmineJ. We are also taking this opportunity to announce the availability of R support for ErmineJ, with the ErmineR library.

Version 3.1.1 (March 2018)

Changes in this version affect the behaviour of the software in a particular gene score situation, where the smallest value is the for the top gene. This is in contrast to the typical inputs which are p-values (for which -log10 transformation is conducted, so large values are ranked highest) or fold-changes or other scores that […]

Version 3.1 (February 2018)

This update mostly affects the command line interface (CLI), but has some impact on the GUI. This includes removing some rarely-used methods, changing some defaults, and renaming some options. This may break (or change the output of) existing scripts using the CLI which is why we have bumped the version number to 3.1. Changes include: […]

Version 3.0.3 (September 28 2017)

ErmineJ now requires Java 8 Updated external URLs for GO terms Multi-gene-mapping microarray probes listed in Gemma platform annotation files are now ignored by default. This behaviour can be modified through a configuration. Changes for compatibility with the new Gemma RESTful API Mac OS distribution now a DMG file.  

Version 3.0.2 (February 2014)

This release fixes several problems reported by users as well as including some documentation updates. The “generic” distribution of the software had an error in the configuration causing it to fail to execute. The logging configuration was causing some problems for command line use. In the details screen, if your “raw data” matrix is missing […]

Version 3.0.1 (November 2013)

This release fixes several issues: Quicklists did not correctly deal with genes in your hitlist that are unannotated (are not members of any gene groups). Error handling for the “multifunctionality diagnostics” has been improved. Problems with selecting score files and poor interaction with the file validation in the Analysis Wizard (bug 3874) The ermineJ log […]

Version 3.0

Version 3.0 –  (June 2013) Many major and minor new features, numerous bug fixes, and major code rewrites. Note that this version of ErmineJ is not completely backwards-compatible with previous versions. Your old results files may not load properly, and old settings ( may not be read in completely. Also not that version 3.x files […]

Older Versions

Version 2.1.22 – (November 2010) Changes include: Fix CLI bug that caused gene score file to be required even when using the correlation method. Version 2.1.21 – (September 2010) Changes include: Update our GO parser to correctly handle the revised GO hierarchy structure. This only affects the view of GO in the “Tree view”. Thanks […]
