# NEWS
DBGWAS v0.5.2 is now released. The main fix is that the precompiled binary is now built with [Holy Build Box](http://phusion.github.io/holy-build-box/),
so it should work on pretty much any glibc-based x86 and x86-64 Linux distribution released since 2007 (e.g.: Debian >= 6, Ubuntu >= 10.04,
Red Hat Enterprise Linux >= 5, CentOS >= 5, etc). See [Downloading the precompiled binaries](#downloading-the-precompiled-binaries) for details.
The complete changelog for this new version can be found [here](https://gitlab.com/leoisl/dbgwas/blob/master/Changelog).

## Downloading the precompiled binaries
This is the easiest way to run the tool since it is already precompiled.
Precompilation is done using [Holy Build Box](http://phusion.github.io/holy-build-box/), so it should work on
pretty much any glibc-based x86 and x86-64 Linux distribution released since 2007 (e.g.: Debian >= 6, Ubuntu >= 10.04,
Red Hat Enterprise Linux >= 5, CentOS >= 5, etc). We acknowledge Páll Melsted since we followed his
[blog post](https://pmelsted.wordpress.com/2015/10/14/building-binaries-for-bioinformatics/) to build this portable binary.
Download the latest binary here (v0.5.2): https://www.dropbox.com/s/gf6n4ibcakcyo5k/DBGWAS-0.5.2-Linux-precompiled.tar.gz?dl=1
**Note:** even in this case, you still have to install the R dependencies (see [Dependencies installation](#dependencies-installation)).
If the precompiled binary worked on your machine, you can jump to section [Dependencies installation](#dependencies-installation). Otherwise, see the next sections.
### Details about the precompiled binary
Precompilation is done using [Holy Build Box](http://phusion.github.io/holy-build-box/), so it should work on
pretty much any glibc-based x86 and x86-64 Linux distribution released since 2007 (e.g.: Debian >= 6, Ubuntu >= 10.04,
Red Hat Enterprise Linux >= 5, CentOS >= 5, etc). We acknowledge Páll Melsted since we followed his
[blog post](https://pmelsted.wordpress.com/2015/10/14/building-binaries-for-bioinformatics/) to build this portable binary.
We attested that the precompiled binary works on Debian 7.11.0 or later and Ubuntu 14.04.5 or later, but it should work on
all distributions supported by [Holy Build Box](http://phusion.github.io/holy-build-box/).
### Help, I can't run the precompiled binaries!
Despite all our efforts, DBGWAS or the other binaries it uses might not work on your particular machine.
In this case, you can compile these binaries yourself and tell DBGWAS to use them instead of the ones that are distributed in DBGWAS package.
