Erg... I am pretty ignorant about mercurial so I should probably not respond to this but I will try. It is pretty common practice for the Galaxy team to push bug fixes to the last release to the stable branch of galaxy-central - which is very different than the default branch of galaxy-central which contains active development. These don't go out to galaxy-dist automatically to prevent the need to strip truly egregious stuff out of the stable branch that the galaxy-dev news says to target.
A quirk of this however is that the stable branch of galaxy-central is actually a good deal more stable the stable branch of galaxy-dist. It is what usegalaxy.org targets and at least a few other high profile Galaxy maintainers have caught on to this trick as well. I think you can update (or merge) the latest stable branch by doing something like the following: hg pull https://bitbucket.org/galaxy/galaxy-central#stable hg update stable We should probably do a better job of keeping the stable branch of galaxy-dist up-to-date - but right now we just push out updates at releases and for major security issues as far as I know. -John On Fri, Mar 14, 2014 at 2:23 PM, Brian Claywell <bclay...@fhcrc.org> wrote: > On Fri, Mar 14, 2014 at 9:01 AM, John Chilton <jmchil...@gmail.com> wrote: >> I believe this problem was fixed by Nate after the latest dist release >> and pushed to the stable branch of galaxy-central. >> >> https://bitbucket.org/galaxy/galaxy-central/commits/1298d3f6aca59825d0eb3d32afd5686c4b1b9294 >> >> If you are eager for this bug fix, you can track the latest stable >> branch of galaxy-central instead of the galaxy-dist tag mentioned in >> the dev news.
