  • NEW FEATURE: Added an option to the Advanced Settings (and the command line) to export the OMSSA results in the OMSSA csv format.
  • NEW FEATURE: Made it possible to set the Java options from the Edit menu. (Not really needed for SearchGUI, but comes in handy when starting PeptideShaker from SearchGUI.)
  • NEW FEATURE: Made it possible to select which PTMs to label as default and thus show up in the “most used modifications” table.
  • NEW FEATURE: Improved the X!Tandem input format to support more advanced modification setups.

  • FEATURE IMPROVEMENT: Changed the X!Tandem parameter “use noise suppression” from “yes” to “no”, such that all spectra are searched and that the user’s maximum precursor charge value is now respected. (Previously spectra with a charge higher than 3+ were ignored by X!Tandem…)
  • FEATURE IMPROVEMENT: An exception is now thrown if multiple fixed modifications have the same target, as this is not really supported by X!Tandem.

  • BUG FIX: Removed the indexing of the mgf files, as there seemed to be a bug in the indexing when splitting mgfs. Indexing is now done in PeptideShaker instead.
  • BUG FIX: Made a minor change to the pom file to handle a recursive issue that occured when opening the project in NetBeans 7.2.

  • LIBRARY UPDATE: Updated the X!Tandem windows versions to version 2011.12.01.1.
