Web Code Changelog - Release 62

Large file formats

To support the increasing number of large file formats being added to Ensembl, the Custom Data section of the control panel has been simplified, with 'Attach BAM File' now merged into 'Attach URL Data'. Format-specific modules in EnsEMBL::Web::Command::UserData and EnsEMBL::Web::Component::UserData have been removed and any functionality merged into generic modules such as EnsEMBL::Web::Command::UserData::AttachRemote.

Additional large file formats include BigWig and VCF. Note that these are not enabled by default, as you will also have to install the necessary file-handling tools. Formats can be enabled individually in DEFAULTS.ini as follows

USERDATA_REMOTE_FORMATS = [BAM BigWig VCF]
