  • A new MIRIAM type is handled now: ClinicalTrials.gov

  • A click on the border of the compartment selects the compartment and display its details in the left panel

  • There is a max size of the map in the configuration panel that prevents uploading too big files

Bugs fixed:

  • The icons were not properly loaded in some cases on Safari browser

  • The migration scripts are compatible with postgres 9.3 version that is the default on Ubuntu 14

  • The Update button and Remove button are now disabled if a user has no Manage overlays privilege

  • The appropriate dialog is provided in case a user is not allowed to manage the users information in the Edit project section. Previously, the tabs Overlays and Users were hidden, to avoid editing them

  • The user was asked twice for confirmation before removing a comment in case the Edit project dialog for specific project was opened. Currently, that confirmation dialog is displayed only one time

  • Editing or removing a project was possible even if a user did not have Map management privilege. Now, if user is not granted with Map management, he cannot remove or edit the project

  • Plugin API: When removeAllListeners is called the list of registered listeners is cleaned

  • A new user privileges were not set according to the MINERVA default privileges for a new user, in case the administrator did not have Manage configuration privilege

  • Plugin API: Adding a plugin directly after removing it from the Administrator’s Plugin panel works correctly now. Previously, that plugin API was recognized as an existing one, thus adding it was denied

  • Too many annotations (>=100) caused incorrect aligning of the search results in the left panel

  • Currently, the export to SVG contains viewBox info

  • The refresh button did not refresh the list of overlays added via API in the left panel

  • Safari sometimes cached server responses and used wrong data, for example in the Administrator panel configuration tab (some tabs were missing)

  • The position of the Transcription Site description is centred now

  • Selecting too few parameters in Export window did not throw a proper error dialog

  • Providing an invalid overlay ID in url could break MINERVA

  • An attempt to remove a project that has already been removed threw 500 error, now there is a dialog displayed

  • Opening a map with an invalid ID shows the proper error message

  • The search results were hidden in the left panel in case the left panel was hidden and then shown again

  • The loading icon in the left panel overlapped the input filed in the search panel. It decreased the clarity of date in the left panel

  • Position of the Transcription Sites in genes are computed properly

  • Currently, REQUEST AN ACCOUNT link on the login page is disabled if an associated email is invalid

  • Working with too many maps within the single session could crash the connection to the server

  • Drawing the corrupted Heterodimer Association in CellDesigner might crash an upload of a map

  • Export to CellDesigner aligns the arrows of inhibition reaction correctly

  • Export and import to/from SBML handles Heterodimer Association reaction properly

  • Currently, the logo does not have to be only square size

  • When clicking on a search link (in the Overview window), the input in the left tab was not modified accordingly to the search results

  • Changing of the genome version in Administrator panel blocks the interface, until the genome url is retrieved

  • The export of the species inside the complex into CellDesigner caused problems when reading the file in CellDesigner

  • The compartments were not exported to SBGN format at all

  • The export of the complex states to SBGN format works now properly
