- Tanglegram exists, but no untangling (yet)
- Bugs still exist (which is why the sidebar has been disabled)
- All JSONs (incl. frequencies, narrative) are loaded within a single Promise & dispatch

version 1.14.0 - 2018/02/27
- Strain search (using awesomplete). This highlights the path to a single tip and increases the tip radius. Strain is stored in the URL query (
s=...) and can be restored via URL. Selected strain also appears in the info panel (top of screen).
- Amino acid branch labels (for every tree) as well as clade labels if specified by the
clade_annotationattribute. AA labels are shown where the descendent visible tips account for more than 5% of the total visible tips (same as nextflu). Clade labels are always displayed.
- Default geneotype gene is now HA1 if available (previously nucleotide).
- ColorBy ordering (sidebar dropdown) is now ordered (via an array in
- The JSON processing on initial load has been shifted from the reducers to a single action - fewer dispatches, fewer potential bugs, faster code.
- Frequencies are initialised in a single action (previously 2).
- tip-frequencies are now downloaded via
- Frequency actions are not dispatched unless the frequency panel is loaded.
version 1.13.2 - 2018/02/26
- Improve consistency of panel controls
unassignedin tree legend (if applicable)
version 1.13.1 - 2018/02/26
- Tree button "reset layout" now at top right
version 1.13.0 - 2018/02/26
- Frequencies are now displayed via a stream graph panel - see PR 497. These require the fetching of a separate
tip-frequenciesJSON, and must be specified in the
panelsarray of the meta.JSON.
- "Panels To Display" toggles in the sidebar allow customisation of the display, and this is reflected in the URL.
-buttons in the tree have been replaced by a "reset tree" button. This resets the bounds to the entire tree & completely re-renders the tree (filters are maintained). Pan behaviour is unchanged.
- React-PhyloTree interface is completely rewritten to use
phylotree.change()- see PR 501 for the API. The new interface is both easier to understand and quicker.
changePageQuery(used for changing narrative blocks) is now a single action
- Ongoing narrative work (still disabled).

color_options(meta JSON) (PR 491)
get_data.shscript updated to no longer download sequences & entropy JSONs
- action logging middleware available for debugging / development
version 1.9.0 - 2018/01/30
- Animations can now loop! This is selected via a toggle in the sidebar.
- While animating, the URL displays information which defines the animation (bounds, looping, cumulative, speed). This allows the animation to start automatically by linking to this URL.
- The code for the animation (i.e. the setInterval code) has been moved out of
Mapand into a separate
- Animation is stopped & started by examining redux state, rather than with imperative controls.
- The narrative machinery has been moved forward, but this functionality is still disabled and not present in production code.
- The (rather expensive)
calendarToNumericcalculations have become part of
state.controlsso that components no longer have to calculate them from the string form.
version 1.8.0 - 2018/01/18
entropy calculated via tree
- The entropy panel data is now computed within auspice by examining mutations throughout the tree, and is throttled to improve speed under load.
- Both entropy and number of mutations are available via a toggle similar to AA/NT
- This results in
entropy.JSONno longer being fetched.
- The entropy data is stored in redux state rather than the react component
- The D3 code has been reorganised
- Note that the entropy values are slightly different to those exported by augur in some situations - see https://github.com/nextstrain/auspice/pull/478#issuecomment-358496901
genotype calculated via tree
- This results in
sequences.JSONno longer being fetched.
- Augur was updated to export
annotationswhich are needed for entropy gene display.
middleware / react router
- All changes to the URL are now performed via middleware rather than side-effects within the action definition.
- React router has been removed
- Browser back/forward is detected via
window.addEventListener('popstate', this.onURLChanged)which also fires on initial page load.
- Pages are selected via the
- The number of proteins displayed while hovering over a branch has been limited to 7 (issue #484)
- The presence of author data is checked before display (issue #488)
- This changelog has been created and a step in the
releaseNewVersionscript added to prepend the version number upon release.
version 1.7.2 - 2018/1/4
Narrative / situational report
- Functionality has been added, but is currently disabled via a flag in
- This is currently rendered in a right-hand sidebar. This feature is not yet complete.
- The following state has been added to the URL query:
- filters, e.g.
- genotype URLs (these were previously set as the URL but not parsed)
- panel layout (grid/full)
- filters, e.g.
- A number of bugs regarding URL query state parsing (esp with genotype colorBys) have been fixed.
