Maltcms 1.1 Released on February 10th, 2012

The Modular Application Toolkit for Chromatography Mass Spectrometry project is a framework mainly for programmers and power-users for data preprocessing tasks, such as filtering, baseline correction, peak finding, alignment, and visualization of high-throughput data.

Maltcms 1.1.0 has seen a large number of changes:
  • Changed configuration system from property files to Spring XML Bean definition format for improved and easier and more flexible exchange/configuration of components.
  • Integration of the MPAXS parallelization framework for much simpler parallelization with automatic task synchronization.
  • Improvements on running time and space usage of the alignment algorithms.
  • New Wavelet-based peak finding algorithm for GCxGC-MS data.
  • Improved TIC-based peak finding algorithm for GC-MS data (and general one-dimensional trajectory data).
  • Refactorings and cleanup in various areas to reduce interdependencies of modules.
  • Integration of the Groovy scripting language.
Known Issues:
  • Xml io providers (except for mzML) may be rather slow on access, this will be fixed in one of the next releases.
