Assuming the power stays on and we're able to dig ourselves out of the snow when it's all over, normal service should resume Wednesday or Thursday.

beside the bug fix, any change in reducedReads compression between 2.7.4 and 2.8.1?

Dear all,

I have discussed with the GATK team a small issue related to the reduceReads compression, which has been fixed just around the end of November. This was 8-9 days ago and I have been actively reprocessing a large number of BAM files to create new reducedReads BAMs. It all works fine now but it's not convenient to cite a nightly release version in publications. Therefore I would like to move to 2.8.1. Now it would make my life so much easier if I could do this without re-reducing again the just fixed BAM files.

Based on the release notes, and given the very short time frame, am I right to assume that 2.8.1 is equivalent to 2.7.4 (the nightly version following the bug fix , dated November 29) as far as reducedReads compression is concerned? Has anything important happened over the last 10 days that would not have been specified in the release notes?
