Release note - Version 0.5


We've recently enabled you to fine-tune email notifications and to query TCGA metadata programmatically using our public SPARQL endpoint. ##Manage the email notifications from the CGC The CGC notifies you via email about your tasks, project memberships, and notes. Now you can specify the items you wish to be notified about. You can apply your settings globally to your account or to a specific project. Learn more about [managing email notifications on our Knowledge Center](http://docs.cancergenomicscloud.org/docs/account-settings#section-manage-email-notifications). ##Query TCGA metadata programmatically To complement the Data Browser on our visual interface, we've enabled you to query TCGA metadata programmatically using [our public SPARQL endpoint](https://opensparql.sbgenomics.com/#/). Queries are constructed using the query language SPARQL (recursively short for SPARQL Protocol and RDF Query Language). Learn more about [querying TCGA metadata programmatically](http://docs.cancergenomicscloud.org/v1.0/docs/query-tcga-metadata-programmatically) on our Knowledge Center.
