Title: Taverna 2.2 starter pack


Information Description

The Taverna team are pleased to announce that Taverna 2.2.0 workbench and command line tool are now available for users to download.

Taverna 2.2.0 includes improvements to the workbench user interface and gives users greater control over the workflow engine.  Here are a few of the new features in the workbench:

    * Loading and sharing of service sets
    * Ability to load and edit workflows that contain services that are offline
    * Reporting on the state of the workflow
    * Tabular representation of a workflow run
    * Retrying and parallelization of service calls
    * Consistent representation of the intermediate and workflow results
    * Pause/resume/cancel of a running workflow

Taverna 2.2.0 also includes a command line tool that allows you to execute workflows outside of the workbench.  The command line tool is available either bundled with the workbench or as a separate download.

Tutorials and examples

Tutorials for Taverna are available on the Taverna website.

Example workflows can be found under the Starter pack tab in the myExperiment section of the workbench.  They can also be downloaded from the myExperiment website.
 
Known issues

Although Taverna 2.2.0 contains many improvements there are some known issues with it. These are detailed in known-issues.txt in the download. An updated and more detailed list can be found in our issue tracker Jira.

Taverna and Java

Taverna requires the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) version 5 or 6 from Sun. No other versions of Java have been tested.  You can download Java from Sun.

Java on Linux

Some Operating Systems, such as Ubuntu, come with the Gnu GCJ version of Java that cannot be used to run Taverna due to bugs in GCJ.
 
To download Sun Java 6 for Ubuntu, start a Terminal and type the following:
 
  sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre
 
and follow the instructions. You might also have to switch the default Java installation by running something like

  sudo update-java-alternatives -s java-6-sun
 
Read more details about Taverna's requirements, in particular how to set the location of the Graphviz binary dot if needed.

Licence and source code

Taverna is distributed under the licence LGPL 2.1.
 
The source code for Taverna can be retrieved from our Subversion repository.  We also really recommend you to sign up to the taverna-hackers mailing list if you are a developer.

Reporting problems

If you find any problems that are not listed in known-issues.txt, then please send them to the mailing list taverna-hackers. Our support team is monitoring the mailing lists and will try to respond to questions as soon as possible.
