Release date: 2018-01-17
The Apache Taverna (incubating) team is pleased to announce the release of:
- apache-taverna-server 3.1.0-incubating
This announcement is also available at: https://s.apache.org/taverna-server-3.1.0
Apache Taverna Server enables you to set up a dedicated server for remotely executing Taverna workflows, exposed as REST Web APIs and WSDL Web Services. This enables integration of Taverna workflows into web portals, mobile applications, as well as allowing desktop users to execute remotely on local server or cloud infrastructure. Taverna Server can be configured for POSIX user isolation (e.g. sudo) and can restrict which workflows to execute.

Taverna Java libraries
Apache Taverna Server relies on these earlier releases:
- Apache Taverna Command-line Tool, which can run Taverna workflows from a command prompt or shell script.
- Apache Taverna Language, a Java API to create, inspect, modify and convert SCUFL2 workflow definitions and Research Object Bundles.
Major changes since Taverna Server 2.5.4 are described below:

Apache Taverna is an effort undergoing incubation at The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) sponsored by the Apache Incubator PMC. Incubation is required of all newly accepted projects until a further review indicates that the infrastructure, communications, and decision making process have stabilized in a manner consistent with other successful ASF projects. While incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the completeness or stability of the code, it does indicate that the project has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF.
