As of Release 3.2.1, the GenePattern server can be configured to run under Java 1.5 or Java 1.6. When installed on Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard), the GenePattern server is configured for Java 1.6 by default. When installed on any other platform, the GenePattern server is configured for Java 1.5 by default. For instructions on how to change the server configuration, see Setting the Java Version.
This release also corrects the following known issues:
The GenePattern team strongly recommends upgrading from GenePattern 3.2.0 to GenePattern 3.2.1:
GenePattern modules and external applications use GenePattern libraries (see Programmer's Guide) and services (see http://genepattern.broadinstitute.org/gp/services) to interact with GenePattern servers. The GenePattern libraries and services from any release should be compatible with GenePattern servers from any release. However, GenePattern 3.2.0 libraries and services are compatible only with GenePattern 3.2.0 servers.
To prevent compatibility issues, upgrade GenePattern 3.2.0 installations to GenePattern 3.2.1. GenePattern 3.2.1 libraries and services are compatible with GenePattern servers from any release except GenePattern 3.2.0. Libraries and services for releases prior to GenePattern 3.2.0 are also compatible with GenePattern servers from any release except GenePattern 3.2.0.
