massXpert is a program to simulate and analyse mass spectrometric data obtained on linear (bio-)polymers. It is the successor of GNU polyxmass. Four modules allow: - making brand new polymer chemistry definitions; - using the definitions to perform easy calculations in a desktop calculator-like manner; - performing sophisticated polymer sequence editing and simulations; - perform m/z list comparisons; Chemical simulations encompass cleavage (either chemical or enzymatic), gas-phase fragmentations, chemical modification of any monomer in the polymer sequence, cross-linking of monomers in the sequence, arbitrary mass searches, calculation of the isotopic pattern...

    2013-07-01 - Filippo Rusconi <> massxpert (3.4.1-1) unstable; urgency=low * This new package happens to close a bug which needed no fixes (Closes: #701319) * debian/control: set Standards-Version: 3.9.4 * debian/control: set standard vcs uri's * debian/compat: set value 9 (hardening stuff automagically handled) * debian/rules: update the hardening stuff according to using v9 of debhelper * debian/control: set debhelper dependency version to 9.20130630 * massxpert.desktop: Icon=massxpert-icon-32 (no extension for filename) * massxpert.desktop: Categories=Science (one categ. only)

    2012-12-25 - Filippo Rusconi <> massxpert (3.4.0-1) unstable; urgency=low * New upstream release: - Implemented the primary selection clipboard copy in the sequence editor window; - Implemented feature that allows one to enter a coordinates string in the sequence editor window so as to select a specific sequence or make a multi-region selection or make a multi-selection region. - Refactored the mz lab GUI so as to greatly simplify its use. - Update of the french translation.

    2012-12-04 - Filippo Rusconi <> massxpert (3.3.0-1) unstable; urgency=low * New upstream release implementing new ways to import mass data in the m/z lists of the mzLab. Updated the documentation.

    2012-10-17 - Filippo Rusconi <> massxpert (3.2.4-1) unstable; urgency=low * debian/control: add Build-Depends: dpkg-dev (>= 1.16.1~) as lintian complained about transitive dependencies that should be made explicit. * Added new modifications in the protein-1-letter chemistry definition.

    2012-06-08 - Filippo Rusconi <> massxpert (3.2.3-1) unstable; urgency=low * debian/rules: setting DPKG_EXPORT_BUILDFLAGS=1 to implement the Debian hardening guidelines. * Modification in the dna.xml file to better document the photocleavable biotin modification

    2012-05-14 - Filippo Rusconi <> massxpert (3.2.2-1) unstable; urgency=low * Upstream release: - Fix warning messages from gcc, complaining about set variable values, but unused variables. Replaced corresponding Q_ASSERT() calls to qFatal() ones.

    2012-05-10 - Filippo Rusconi <> massxpert (3.2.1-1) unstable; urgency=low * Upstream release: - fix a bug in the definition of the protein chemical modifications TNB and DTNB; * Add debian/upstream to document a reference to a paper describing this software; * Fix problem with failing symbolic link between the massxpert and -dbg doc directories (lintian W binaries-have-file-conflict); * Bump-up Standards Version number to 3.9.3 from 3.9.1.

    2011-11-24 - Filippo Rusconi <> massxpert (3.2.0-2) unstable; urgency=low * debian/control: configure packaging for debug symbols (new massxpert-dbg binary package added).

    2011-10-22 - Filippo Rusconi <> massxpert (3.2.0-1) unstable; urgency=low * Upstream release: - Added feature to simulate fragmentations of oligomers that contain cross-links. - Updated the user manual to document the new feature.
