BASE 2 demo server

We have set up a BASE 2 demo server for those of you who want a sneak preview of the next major release of BASE. Data in this server is migrated from the current BASE 1 demo server. For people without any account information we have added a user base2 with password base2 (valid on both servers). The base2 user has read privileges to all data on the demo server.


There is no production release of BASE 2.0 yet. The release schedule is published under the roadmap tab above. Go the DownloadPage to download the latest release of BASE 2.0RC2. Latest (stable) version 1.2.X can be downloaded through BASE 1.2 web site.


Many analysis modules comes with the core install of BASE. Plug-ins that depends on non-Java based software packages have to be installed separately. There is a BASE plug-ins web site for maintaining these add-on plug-ins.
