Release note

CWL v1.2 available on the Seven Bridges Platform

Seven Bridges Platform now supports Common Workflow Language (CWL) version v1.2. The new version of CWL brings a major new functionality – conditional execution of workflow steps, as well as several minor features and improvements. For the detailed change log please see the CWL CommandLineTool specification and the CWL Workflow specification.

The new CWL version v1.2 is a backwards-compatible upgrade of version v1.1, meaning all v1.0 and v1.1 features are still supported in v1.2. To upgrade a v1.0 or v1.1 app to v1.2, simply edit the app and the next version you save can automatically be upgraded to v1.2. Note that upgrading a workflow CWL version to v1.2 this way will not upgrade the CWL version of the tools in the workflow.

Apps using CWL v1.0 and v1.1 versions are still supported and can be used in workflows in combination with CWL v1.2 apps.
