Hi Julien,

Thank you for your feedback.

The Ensembl API and webcode are compatible with Bioperl 1.6.1
This is the version we are using for the live server and we do not
guarantee compatibility with any newer versions.

This is reflected in our installation guide:


> Dear list,
> I wanted to let you know that the installation of bioperl from Git (git
> clone https://github.com/bioperl/bioperl-live.git) seems to be missing
> some files, which leads to an error message when using the Ensembl API
> For example folder bioperl-live/Bio/Root/ does not include Root.pm, it
> includes only a script HTTPget.pm
> Installing from the archive at
> http://bioperl.org/DIST/BioPerl-1.6.1.tar.gz solved the problem since
> all files are included now.
