JBrowse 1.10.10 maintenance release

JBrowse 1.10.10 has been released, with new compression support in generate-names.pl, configurable inter-track spacing, and quite a few bug fixes.

(Download disabled.  Please download the 1.10.12 release or later instead.)

Minor improvements

  • Spacing between tracks is now configurable by setting
    view.trackPadding in the configuration. Thanks to Chenchen Zhu
    for suggesting this (issue #377).

  • If reference sequences are defined, but no tracks are yet added,
    JBrowse will start normally instead of going to the
    “Congratulations, JBrowse is on the web” page.

  • generate-names.pl now supports a --compress option that
    compresses the name index files to save server disk space. Thanks
    to Richard Hayes for pointing out the need for this (issue #378).

Bug fixes

  • generate-names.pl now uses IO::Uncompress::Gunzip instead of
    PerlIO::gzip to read compressed VCF files. This fixes a bug in
    which only the first few hundred names in a VCF were indexed.
    Thanks to Cris Lawrence for pointing this out (issue #380).

  • Fixed a bug in which generate-names.pl would crash if run with
    --incremental and no existing names index. Thanks to Richard
    Hayes for pointing this out (issue #379).

  • Fixed a bug in which generate-names.pl would sometimes choose the
    wrong number of hash bits when performing incremental updates,
    leading to the old data being lost. Thanks to Richard Hayes for
    lots of help troubleshooting this.

  • Fixed bug where other tracks are visible underneath pinned tracks
    when the display is scrolled down. Thanks to Ed Lee for pointing
    this out.

  • Fixed a bug in which tooltip does not hide after the mouse leaves a
    Wiggle track in Safari 5 and 6. Thanks to Charles Girardot for
    pointing this out.

  • Fixed a bug in which the main.css file for plugins was not being
    correctly loaded in some installations. Thanks to Matt Bomhoff for
    pointing this out.
