Hi Danny,

Ensembl continues to be primarily a Perl based project but there is growing development in Python and JavaScript, which will continue to increase over the coming years.

We also hope you can find others to help maintain the codebase, however Ensembl’s Java expertise* has diminished over the past years and is one of the reasons why we cannot offer our help to maintain this. We will continue to advertise any pending changes to our REST API and FTP site via our pre-release blog posts and attempt to minimise disruption to both of these resources.
