  • Removed an infinite spinner triggered by attempting to preview a DOS object, if that DOS object resolved to a text file or log file.
  • Fixed an error caused by attempting to populate a method configuration with a json file larger than 4kb.
  • Attempting to download a file larger than 2GB with your browser through the FireCloud UI would fail. These downloads now work, though we recommend using gsutil for large file download instead of your browser.
  • Cluster creation errors no longer cause clusters to appear to get stuck in Creating status in the UI
  • The cluster creation dialog now includes static text informing users of the expected time to create a cluster
  • Users should no longer see 404 errors when opening a notebook from FireCloud
  • FireCloud now displays appropriate error messages when a user does not have permission to modify notebooks
  • Enable auto pause of clusters after 30 minutes of idle time
  • Leonardo now better handles situations when clusters or projects are deleted in Google
  • Leonardo is now more resilient to timeouts from GCR when pulling the notebook image

  • We now provide a library encapsulating a number of functions researchers might use in R from a notebook. The repo & documentation can be found here.
  • Upgraded IGV.js from v1.0.6 to v2.0.0-rc5 in the Analysis tab of a workspace. For more information on IGV.js and IGV in general, read here and here.

Sept 12, 2018

  • New UI for Notebooks in FireCloud! Read more about it here.
  • You can now install extensions to Notebooks by URL, rather than just GCS path, thus enabling hosted scripts to be used as extensions
  • Previously, Notebooks greater than 8MB would fail to render and save. This limit has been raised to 64MB.
  • Workspace readers no longer see the "Abort" button for running submissions. This button was previously visible to users with read-only workspace access, even though it did not allow those users to successfully abort a submission.
  • Improved error messaging when encountering an unauthorized call. Users who hit this error message will now be informed and given steps on what they should do to fix it.
  • When you import a method from Dockstore, the "Configure inputs/outputs using the Workspace Data Model" checkbox will be unchecked by default.
