method or handler lets you script faster with fewer errors. Have all
of your comments appear in a neatly organized column to the right of

script editor to automatically call it up.

stacks open. A new dock at the top of your screen takes up
significantly less space.

scheme for all Galaxy windows. Under Mac OS X, you can also hide both
the Mac menu bar and dock.

letting you more easily step through and trace issues in your code.

third party vendor of Revolution tools make their tool recognized by
Galaxy. This feature is only available in Galaxy Studio or higher.

creating even complex applications and really allow the powerful
Revolution engine to shine,” said user Troy Rollins, RPSystems, Ltd.
