Finally, the new version of SBW is released, just in time for this years ICSB. Here the full release announcement:
The Systems Biology Workbench (SBW), is a software framework that allows heterogeneous application components-written in diverse programming languages and running on different platforms - to communicate and use each others' capabilities via a fast binary encoded-message system. Our goal was to create a simple, high performance, open-source software infrastructure which is easy to implement and understand. SBW enables applications (potentially running on separate, distributed computers) to communicate via a simple network protocol.
The interfaces to the system are encapsulated in client-side libraries that we provide for different programming languages.
There are a number of significant changes in this release:
- Event support in Jarnac Lite, improved event support in roadRunner (and support for delayed events), improved display of discrete events in the Simulation Tool.
- Improved support for SBML Layout and proposed Render Extension, changes in auto layout module, adding of a SBGN style sheet based on SBO terms.
- Numerous bug fixes and usability improvements
