Release note - Version 0.4


Since our last update, we've made several improvements to the CGC. These include: ##API uploads We're happy to announce that the API can now be used to upload files to the CGC. This will allow you to integrate the CGC with sequencing facilities and remote storage systems. [See the documentation here](http://docs.cancergenomicscloud.org/v1.0/docs/upload-files). ##API task execution details You can now use the API to retrieve execution details of a task and its component jobs. The information returned includes standard error logs, details of the instance types used for each job, and job start and end times. This feature is available with the new API call to [get execution details](http://docs.cancergenomicscloud.org/v1.0/docs/get-task-execution-details). ##Batch tasks We launched support for batch tasks. This allows you to create a task that takes a list of inputs and automatically launches a series of sub-tasks processing different groups of those inputs. To read more, see the documentation on [batch analyses](http://docs.cancergenomicscloud.org/v1.0/docs/perform-a-batch-analysis). You can also create, run and get information on batch tasks via the API. ##Multi-instance scheduler We've also released a multi-instance scheduler. This allows you to configure the computation instances that each tool is run on in a workflow. (Documentation coming soon).
