BEAST v1.8.4 has been released:
Version 1.8.4 released 17th June 2016 New Features: New structured list of citations printed to screen before running. Option ('-citation_file') to write citation list to file. Option in BEAUti Priors panel to set parameters to 'Fixed Value' Bug Fixes: Issue 808: Set autoOptimize to false in the randomWalkOperator on Pagel's lambda Issue 806: SRD06 in BEAUTi selecting incorrect options. Issue 799: Relative rate parameters for partitions were not being created. All partitions within a clock model have a relative rate if their substitution models are unlinked. Issue 798: Calculating pairwise distances was slow for big data sets - removed this (but initial values no longer suggested based on data). Issue 797: Removed 'meanRate' from Priors tab in BEAUti. Issue 794: Running with empty command line causes error. Issue 792: Check to see that the same likelihood isn't included multiple times into the density.
