Release tag for LipidXplorer 1.2.8


This release is focused on improving the import module and implementing the recently introduced filtering approach based on counting reoccurrences of peaks in MS-scans and MS/MS-scans conceptually following Schuhmann et al. All other general functionalities of the former releases should not be affected. Further changes were made for better documentation and simpler user guidance. Some experimental and/or unused options were deactivated (grouping samples, heuristic hierarchical alignment, dta/csv import). Details are listed below.


The frequency based filtering is active for the *.mzXML and *.mzML import module. For this release we have tested both *.mzXML and *.mzML files after conversion with msConvert of *.raw files of a Q Exactive instrument (Thermo Fisher Scientific, Bremen, Germany). The LipidXplorer (LX) software and also this improved import module were developed for shotgun lipidomics experiments.
