Previously announced here Biostar 1000x - new version in development

About five weeks later we are getting close to release the new version of Biostar. The entire system has been rewritten from ground up, we started with an empty directory. Just now as I prepared this post I've counted the number of lines in the repositories for the first time:

old repository:

git ls-files | xargs cat | wc -l

new repository:

git ls-files | xargs cat | wc -l

Ha! That's close to being exactly 10 times smaller as promised :-).

An interesting feature is that Biostar can now handle mailing lists. As an example the beta test is being run on a Galaxy mailing list import, see it here:

The ultimate goal is to be able to post to Biostar via email as well. There are still a few rough edges and a few features are not yet enabled (badges for example). Also the site above needs to be used as a beta site only, content on it may be removed.

There is also better and improving documentation for the the Biostar codebase found at:

As always feel free to log in, poke around and kick the tires, suggestions and recommendations are welcome.

What will happen to the Biostar 1.0 accounts?

I noticed the community page in the beta test was different than the users page on the Biostar website. In the real Biostar 2.0, will we be able to keep our same profiles and stats? Sometimes, I find it helpful to view my old comments, and the ability to post ads is currently based upon reputation.

All Biostar content and user data will be kept as is today.

The beta site will be the Galaxy user support platform, unrelated to the main Biostar site. We're just using their data to beta test.
