This date marks the launch of Dockstore 1.0. This release combines the release of several Pan-cancer workflows, tested as standardized CWL 1.0 CommandLineTools along with several new features including support for CWL 1.0 in Dockstore itself and preliminary support for the GA4GH tool-registry-schema.
Three new workflows used to generate the ICGC PanCancer Analysis of Whole Genomes (PCAWG) dataset have been released and validated with CWL 1.0.
These workflows join the first workflow used to generate this dataset, BWA-mem.
Highlighted New Features¶
- Support for the preliminary GA4GH tool-registry-schema 1.0 will allow Dockstore to share and exchange tools with other similar projects around the world
- Upgraded support for CWL 1.0 (previously draft-3) allows Dockstore to display and launch tools
- Dockstore launcher (which allows you to run tools locally on one host) supports file provisioning based on CWL secondary files. See Sanger for an example
- Default branch/tag support allows tool developers to pin a particular version of their tool to display to their users
