Changes in version 5.2.3 (Nov 23, 2020)


  • Corrected a regression to enable the "Copy" command when a portion of an aligned sequence is selected.
    (Reportd by Jai Padmakumar)
  • Corrected an issue that could prevent protein search results from being shown.
    (Reported by Renato Lemgruber)
  • Improved the size and placement of the License Agreement and Align Multiple Sequences windows.
    (Reported by Brian Tooker)
  • Ensured proper opening of GenBank files that omit the molecule type in the LOCUS line.
    (Reported by Oliver Coleman)
  • Fixed an issue that could prevent using a attR Gateway site that lacks an optional leading nucleic acid.
    (Reported by Robert Bill)
  • Fixed an issue with using Gateway fragments whose junctions lie at or very near the numerical origin.
    (Reported by Robert Bill)
  • Ensured that files and collections located on network drives are included in the Open Recent File and Open Collection menus.
    (Reported by Katherina Witte)
  • Fixed various glitches with displaying codon and ORF selections in Sequence view.
    (Reported by James Scott)
  • Improved the appearance of tabs on macOS 11 Big Sur.
  • Corrected a regression to ensure auto-scrolling in Sequence view for selections made using the minimap or another view.
    (Reported by Stuart Cahalan, Scott James, and Théo Grebert)
  • Corrected a regression to ensure display of restriction sites in sequences aligned to a reference DNA sequence.
  • Fixed an issue that resulted in ORFs sometimes not being shown.
  • Ensured that "Find" matches remain highlighted after switching away from and then back to Sequence view or Map view.
  • Ensured that "Find" matches are shown after restoring the "Find similar DNA sequences" controls.
  • Ensured that palindromic "Find" matches are highlighted in both strands.
  • Ensured proper display of "Find similar DNA sequences" matches that wrap around the numerical origin.
  • Improved the behavior of the search box in the Choose Enzymes window when searching for a noncutter while the "Hide noncutters" checkbox is checked.
  • Fixed an issue with detecting Gateway sites that have been customized by the user.
  • Fixed an issue with annotating Gateway sites that lie near the numerical origin after performing BP or LR cloning.
  • Ensured reliable import of features from SwissProt files.
  • Ensured reliable opening of SwissProt files that contain limited header information.
  • Corrected a regression to force use of the correct font in the New DNA File and New Protein File dialogs.
  • Ensured accurate display of multiple sequence alignment file names in the Window menu on Linux.
  • Improved reliability when installing software updates on macOS Big Sur.
