The May 2014 Galaxy Update Newsletter is out! There's a lot going on in the project and the community right now. The big news in the past month is the move from the Galaxy-User mailing list to Galaxy Biostar for user support. This has been running for a week now, and has been very well received.

The other big news is upcoming events. Early registration for GCC2013 closes May 23. Register now and save more than 70% on registration costs, and Training Day registration is an additional 55% off if you register for both at the same time. We are also pleased to announce this year's keynote speaker and the first ever GCC Hackathon.

There's also a Galaxy UK Tour which is visiting Norwich and Edinburgh in May, and there are at least 17 other Galaxy related events in the next 70 days in Norway, France, online, Croatia, Thailand, Canada, the US, the Netherlands, and Australia

As always, there are new papers (47 of them, including four we highlighted), new public Galaxy Servers (Globus Genomics Proteomics and SunLab Galaxy), new jobs (7 postings in 6 countries), new tools in the project ToolShed (um, lots), and a new public ToolShed (at the Dutch Techcentre for Life Sciences (DTL).
