Our abbreviated December newsletter includes just two new titles; Jupyter 6.1.5 and RStudio 1.4.1106. Both titles are available for Mac and Linux.
BioGrids is closed from December 20th to January 2nd for the Harvard winter break. Email sent to email@example.com will be monitored. If you have an emergency you may send it there.

End Of Life for Version 1 BioGrids Installer
BioGrids installation managers in the 1.X series will no longer work. The last released version was 1.0.695. Attempting installation with this older version will fail and will appear to be a network connection issue. Please upgrade to the new installation manager.
You do not need to reinstall titles or reactivate. Simply download the new Installation Manager and begin using.

Remote Working Help
The BioGrids Wiki provides step by step instructions for installing BioGrids software on a local laptop or desktop machine. If you prefer a live demonstration, or run into trouble, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We can set up a Zoom meeting to assist you.
MacOS 10.15 Catalina
Due to new security measures in OSX, installation under MacOS 10.15 requires an additional step. We have detailed a workaround to install BioGrids and SBGrid on new machines. Two approaches are available.
If your use of BioGrids supplied software was an important element in your publication, please include the following statement in your work:
"Software used in the project was installed and configured by BioGrids
(cite: eLife 2013;2:e01456, Collaboration gets the most out of software.)"
