Attention:
The frontline support team will be slow on the forum because we are occupied with the GATK Workshop on March 21st and 22nd 2019. We will be back and more available to answer questions on the forum on March 25th 2019.

Is the parallelism documentation for DepthOfCoverage correct?

states (bold is my emphasis):

Parallelism options

This tool can be run in multi-threaded mode using this option.

TreeReducible (-nt)

Yet when I run the GATK with -nt, I get an error that -nt is not supported (truncated to save space):

ERROR A USER ERROR has occurred (version 2.8-1-g932cd3a):
ERROR MESSAGE: Invalid command line: Argument nt has a bad value: The analysis DepthOfCoverage aggregates results by interval. Due to a current limitation of the GATK, analyses of this type do not currently support parallel execution. Please run your analysis without the -nt option.
