Installing new qiime releases β€” compatibility

Thanks Nick! By the way, when the new release is out I have to install it and delete the old one? Will that delete my data in the old release too?

You will just install the new release as a separate conda environment, no need to delete the old one (unless if you want to).

No β€” because your study data (e.g., artifact files) are not tied in any way to the old release. It is saved to disc! So you can reanalyze that same data with the new release and any future releases.

That’s great! Thanks again and sorry that sometimes I have dummy questions :frowning:

we’re all beginners at some point. No such thing as a bad question here!
