The latest UGENE 1.11 version is a major release that provides dozens
of new features (major and minor), bug fixes and a set of usability
and other improvements.

The major changes are:

* The Sequence View was extended with an options panel. It shows
interactive information about a selected sequence region, allows you
to easily set up the annotation types' properties (for example
annotations' colors) and to search for a pattern in a sequence.

* Now you can now calculate a consensus sequence for assembly data in
the Assembly Browser, using either a simple default algorithm or an
algorithm from SAMtools. Also, it is now possible to highlight paired
reads and SNP in assembly data.

* Another minor handy feature is the possibility to add bookmarks in
the Assembly Browser.

* To create more sophisticated workflows in the Workflow Designer you
can use new data flow elements Grouper and Multiplexer.

* An mRNA-to-genomic alignment program Spidey was embedded into UGENE
as an external tool.

* UGENE 64-bit version is now available for Windows.
