Hi folks, I've researched this in the new global Google Search tool but didn't see the answer I needed. Is there actually a single "version" of Galaxy ? or is it a collection of components with their own versions ? Can that can be seen on or near the Main front page ? I can't see a Version/About type of item, either in menus or lurking in some rev stamp at the bottom of pages etc. Thanks. -- Greg Edwards

Hello Greg, Galaxy does not have versions as you'd find in commercial products. There is a strict requirement that Galaxy provide reproducible behavior always, so any new feature introduced into Galaxy (or any enhancement to an existing feature) must not break any older feature that came before. Because of this, you can always think of Galaxy as being "version 1" if it helps. Galaxy does, however have different distributed "builds" or mercurial "changeset revision" numbers. You can find out what build your own local instance is running if you type "hg heads" in the Galaxy install directory of your local Galaxy instance. The build of the main public Galaxy instance is included in the following string on the main page in the center panel. Galaxy build: $Rev 6299:b258de1e6cea$ The various builds that are made available in the distribution are always documented in each of the associated news briefs that announce whats availabe in each new distribution.

Greg, Thanks. All clear. It could be comforting for me to see a date stamp on that build number, just to know I am using a recent build. But I'm sure you're following normal practice. When I fire up the Amazon Cloud service, using the recommended AMI da58aab3 galaxy-cloudman-2011-03-22 (ami-) there's a warning in the Galaxy Wiki tutorial that it will not be latest version, and can be updated. But there's no Build Stamp on the front page of the cloud version to tell me just how far back I am. I tried to ssh to the instance to use hg heads to check, but ssh is not letting me in just now. I have the right Security Group and Key Pair. I'm getting ssh -i /Users/gedwards/bio/aws1/GregPair1.pem Permission denied (publickey). If there's an obvious thing to check with the ssh let me know, but I'm not very worried about that, my other (non Galaxy) EC2 experimentations are all fine with ssh. Probably my fault. I could start the CloudMan again with wide-open security maybe. Cheers, Greg E -- Greg Edwards
