In order for the dependency to work smoothly on both BioConda
and the Tool Shed system, we have changed the package name
from "blast+" to just "blast". Given the NCBI stopped updated the
original "legacy" BLAST some time ago, when combined with the
version number this is no longer ambiguous.
Jumping from using BLAST+ 2.2.31 to using BLAST+ 2.5.0
required updating lots of the test files for NCBI changes, including
dropping the GI numbers in many outputs, expanding the percentage
identity field from 2dp to 3dp, and also changing how -parse_deflines
works with tabular output.
The wrappers (deliberately) do not yet offer any new functionality
added in the recent NCBI BLAST+ updates, in particular BLAST
XML v2 is not yet available as an output with a datatype in Galaxy.
At this point I would welcome feedback from those of you using the
BLAST+ wrappers - including if you were able to install this with the
dependencies from BioConda or the traditional Tool Shed packages.
Once I'm confident that this is all OK, I will update the main Tool Shed
(and think about adding new functionality in 2017).
Thank you all,
