We are pleased to announce the availability of Segway 1.3.0!

This release features a handful of useful enhancements to Segway. Segway
can now handle multiple genomedata archives from the command line. This
allows for workflows where the additional tracks can be added with
additional archives instead of having to rebuild a singular archive.
Soft assignment for semi-supervision is now possible, allowing you to
specify a range of labels for supervised regions. The ability to limit
jobs running locally is now possible with the SEGWAY_NUM_LOCAL_JOBS
environment variable.

Along with all these major features more work has gone into refactoring,
improving documentation and the overall install procedure.

Please let me know if you have any comments on Segway, its
documentation, web site, installation, or anything else. (The
preferred place to make these comments is on the segway-users mailing
list or by reporting an issue on the issue tracker, both linked from
the main web site).

Here is a full list of changes made since the last announcement here:


Major Features:

* segway: added semi-supervsied mode support for soft assignment. See
for more details.
