Clone Manager Professional 9 Update

September 2016 --- Update 9.x to 9.51

If you are using Clone Manager Professional version 9, you can download a software patch that will update your program to the latest version (ver 9.51). You can also download the latest version of the program's compiled HTML Help.

Update Description

This update makes the changes necessary to access the NCBI web site and identify sequence data so that you can continue to use the Entrez (E-utils), Browse Entrez and Search, and BLAST internet search functions. (NCBI is changing the URL used to reach the web site (going to a more secure https link) and is phasing out the use of sequence GIs as sequence identifiers.)

This update also includes some fundamental changes recently made to the program to support the newest operating systems and touch-screen devices. These changes most noticeably affect the File, Open and File, Save dialog boxes, and the application Help system. This update also includes changes to the Clone Manager list of feature keys supported in GenBank/EMBL file formats to include new feature keys (like Regulatory), and mandatory qualifiers are now supported.

Installing this update will also set or update the browser emulation mode for the embedded Clone Manager web browser control, and automatically update the Entrez URL (if not already changed).

This update also includes all corrections and additions made in prior version 9 incremental updates, including a new sequence phrase collections module, new Assembly Cloning module, a new Gateway Cloning Wizard, a new Topoisomerase Cloning Wizard and a new Retrieve from Entrez (E-utils) function.

Concurrent User License holders -- this update also includes a network administrator's toolkit. These administrator tools will help you to install and configure the software, turn on token logging, monitor tokens in use, and trouble-shoot problems you may encounter running the network edition of Clone Manager.
