Retirement of Ensembl archive 74

The archive website for Ensembl release 74 will be retired. This is inline with our rolling retirement policy, where archives are retired after five years, unless they contain the last instance of an important dataset for a key species.

The database will still be available for direct queries and on our FTP site.

We will not be retiring release 75, which was the last normal Ensembl release with GRCh37 was release 75, the previous human genome assembly. This assembly will also continue to be available through the dedicated GRCh37 website, on the GRCh37 REST API and on the dedicated server for direct database access. Since the GRCh37 database continues to receive software updates and updates to some of its data, you may wish to switch any analyses on e75 to the GRCh37 database.
