– SimpleSearchEngine and algorithm: Additional spectrum features for percolator added
– FeatureFinderMetaboIdent: Targeted feature extraction is now also available from pyOpenMS
– AssayGeneratorMetabo: Added SIRIUS 4.9.0 support, allowing internal decoy generation and added internal feature linking support
– QCCalculator: export in mzQC file format is now available

New Tools:
– OpenMSDatabasesInfo — Prints the content of OpenMS’ enzyme and modification databases to TSV (UTIL)
