Release Notes: The main new features are in the mzLab (XpertMiner module). There are many bugfixes and a lot of code refactoring/cleaning. This version is a recommended upgrade.
Release Notes: This release can select an arbitrary number of regions in the polymer sequence. This feature is required to make the most out of the cross-linking simulations available in massXpert. The implications of this new development are pervasive all through the project and should allow even more intuitive simulations to be performed in the XpertEdit module.
Release Notes: Plugin loading problems with the massXpert-1.7.6.dmg Mac OS X package wre fixed. Other platforms do not need this update.
Release Notes: This release is unded the GPLv3. The massXpert program should run on Mac OS X 10.3.9 (either PPC or Intel) or higher. It has been tested on Mac OS X 10.3.9 (PPC), 10.4.11 (PPC), and 10.5.2 (Intel). Note that the package is self-contained and does not required installation of the Qt libraries anymore. The implementation of a new experimental data mining feature, mzLab, has begun. There is a lot of code cleanup, classes were redesigned, and numerous bugfixes (GUI and non-GUI) were made.
Release Notes: There is finally one Mac OS X package. The whole software program is now relocatable. The French translation is 100% complete. A lot of code cleanup work has been done, along with an implementation of namespaces in the whole project. Some classes have been added and some existing classes redesigned. There are bugfixes here and there, and the documentation has been updated.
Release Notes: This release implemented a new fragmentation specification method for fragmentation patterns where the monomer undergoing fragmentation has its lateral chain decomposed. This is particularly useful in nucleic acids chemistry where the nucleic base might be eliminated at the monomer undergoing fragmentation according to the pattern 'a'. The French translation was updated. A memory leak and bugs were fixed. The user manual was updated.
Release Notes: This release implements dynamic mass data filtering on the oligomer data obtained after a polymer sequence fragmentation or after arbitrary mass searches. A regression after the implementation of the previous release's features has been fixed. Minor bugs have been fixed and the code cleaned up. The GUI user experience has been improved. The documentation has been updated.
Release Notes: Intra-molecular cross-links were implemented. For protein chemists, this means that sulfide bonds are now handled in the sequence and that simulation of the fluorescent proteins also (their chromophore is created by internal cross-links involving three monomers). Finding a sequence motif in a polymer sequence was implemented. This is a rather simple implementation but very handy for long polymer sequences. A serious bug with how composite formulas are handled in certain cases was fixed. You should really be upgrading to version 1.7.1 for this reason. Various bugfixes and other small improvements were made.
Release Notes: The polymer chemistry definition code has been fully rewritten, and the user interface redesigned. There are bugfixes here and there. Coding of the framework for intra-molecular cross-link has begun. There is a new package for Fedora core, and the usual packages for Debian GNU/Linux.
Release Notes: When cleaving or fragmenting a sequence, you may now ask for the generation of cleavage- or fragmentation-based oligomers of any given ionization state. For example, when cleaving a protein using an enzyme, it is possible to ask that the generated peptides be in an ionized state between z=1 and z=5. A bug with the acido-basicity calculations where the user could only enter integer pH values was fixed. Double values (precision 2 decimals) may now be used to allow finer grained calculations. Various minor bugs were fixed.
