Changes to RCSB PDB queries

A warning to anyone who uses the Vernalis PDBConnector family nodes routinely (or indeed any other programmatic access method) to run AUTHOR name queries on the RCSB PDB RESTful webservice - we have a newly-failing test case at the moment (sometime between 6th June and yesterday - 20th June 2017).  After some investigation, it transpires that this is due to a change at the RCSB webservice in the format it expects to receive an author name.  That used to be:


but now appears to be:

Roughley, S.D.

(Note the space after the comma after the surname, and periods after each initial)

If you have any saved queries of this nature which you run regularly, you will need to change them, and possibly re-run them.
