libSBOL 2.1.1 Release

We are pleased to announce the release of libSBOL-2.1.1 which is now available for download.

libSBOL provides the C/C++ API for constructing, manipulating, and serializing synthetic biology designs in the Synthetic Biology Open Language (SBOL) data format. Version 2.1.1 of libSBOL provides support for the SBOL 2.1.0 data specification.  We are particularly proud of this library’s extensible, object-oriented API for custom RDF/XML data extensions, making it simple and easy to integrate SBOL data into custom workflows. 

This release includes binary installers for Windows and Mac OSX, 32 and 64 bit. The Windows installer provides binaries  pre-built with Visual Studio 2015. Mac OSX binary distributions can be obtained through the package distribution service homebrew. Linux users are encouraged to build the libraries from source or try linuxbrew package service.

Links to the github repository, this release, an issue tracker, tutorials, documentation, and  example code, and our email list for support can be found on the SBOL website

Finally, we would like to hear from you regarding your experiences using this library. Also, if you develop a tool that uses this library, please let us know, so we can advertise this on the SBOL website.  Please fill out the software survey here:
