What's new?

  • Tooltips: Try out the new tooltips by hovering over reactions, metabolites, and genes. You can build custom tooltips with our JavaScript API, and there is a brand new tutorial to show you how.

  • D3 v4: Escher now uses D3 version 4, which means easier packaging, smaller files sizes, better testing, and better performance

  • Revamped docs: Check out our new and improved documentation

  • New Escher Converter: Escher Converter is now on version 1.2, and it includes the ability to convert SBML with the Layout Extension and SBGN-ML to Escher JSON.

  • Simplified shortcuts: Some keyboard shortcuts are simplified: zoom in (+), zoom out (-), zoom to canvas (0), zoom to nodes(1), find (f), and settings (,). For now, the old keyboard shortcuts (with ctrl) still work.

  • Better reaction shapes: We made some improvements to the shapes and label locations for new reactions. This should make drawing maps even easier:

New features

There is now an option in the web application to download a map as a PNG file (Map > Export as PNG).

Bug fixes

This release also includes a critical security update for the Python package. Before this release, when running the Python server with public=True, the Python server would serve files outside of the Escher directory through directory traversal (e.g. ../..). This has been fixed, but it is still best to run the server with public=False, and this is the default for all past and future versions.
