Bug and Feature Trackers

Fixed or newly added since last meeting

  • Cycle Check doesn't work
    • New cycle check method finds (possibly mixed-relationship) cycles by checking for objects that are descendants of one of their own children.
    • The check works whether or not you have the reasoner on, but it doesn't find cycles that involve implied links found by the reasoner.
    • The new cycle check is set by default to run on save and on manual verification; other times (e.g., on reasoner change) can be added by the user via the Verification Manager configuration panel.
  • Name redundancy check not working in Text Editor
    • It was checking for name redundancy when called with no arg (i.e., invoked from Verification Manager; check all terms) but not when called on a specific term (i.e., from Text Editor).

Currently working on


  • Released OBO-Edit 2.2 on May 24 (I was going to call it 2.1.1 but decided that was too confusing)
    • Passes the usual unit tests
    • Mike Cherry tested it in the pipeline and said it seemed fine
    • Several OEWG members said that it works for them
