Release Notes

State Final release
License GPLv3
Release Manager Rene Warren

When pipelined with the ARCS/ARKS scaffolder, LINKS v1.8.6 prioritizes paths with shorter gaps only when there are no ambiguous gap distance estimates with the neighboring sequences considered. Add linkage information (ID and size) to the output .gv graph. We now provide a utility (./tools/consolidateGraphs.pl) to highlight differences between two LINKS graphs. Implement -z min_size with an ARCS checkpoint.

*This release consumes more memory and is intended to be used with the ARC/KS pipeline with the -D option enabled. If you are running LINKS with long reads or ARC/KS without distance estimates, we encourage our users to use the previous LINKS version (v1.8.5)
