- New Features:
- Added a new Alphabets module for managing different alphabets.
- Added a new Sequence IO module for managing all kinds of sequence data; unlike the old io::ReadData, the containers in this module support various types of alphabet encodings, and can be used both for loading reads as well as for reading or mapping large reference data.
- Rewrote the FM-Index IO module; the new io::FMIndexData offers more uniform interfaces, and unlike its predecessor no longer holds any reference data, which can now be separately loaded through the new Sequence IO module.
- Rewrote the Batch Alignment Schedulers, adding support for a new OpenMP host backend.
