We are pleased to announce the availability of Genomedata 1.6.0!

This release addresses long standing issues with builds and legacy Python support. Genomedata will now only support a minimum Python version of 3.7. Future releases will be easier to install and support. With the release of wheel builds, hdf5 development libraries are no longer necessary for Genomedata to be installed. It is still recommended that users install with Bioconda.

Genomedata is available on Bioconda. With Bioconda installed, to install Genomedata run 'conda install genomedata'. Genomedata can still be installed through older methods using "pip", see the installation instructions at for details.

Here is a full list of changes made since the last announcement here:

* required Python is now >=3.7
* genomedata-load-data: changed to a python script with a c-extension
