JBrowse 1.10.12 has been released, and we are asking all users of JBrowse
1.10.7 1.10.10 and higher to please upgrade to this release as soon as possible.
The story behind this is a bit embarassing: I discovered today that JBrowse releases
1.10.7 through 1.10.10 and 1.10.11 shipped with usage analytics reporting disabled. This is a little piece of code that tracks how many installations and users of JBrowse there are, and the data it provides is absolutely crucial for the JBrowse project, because we use it to try to convince funding agencies that JBrowse is a project worth funding.
So, yes … this release has analytics reporting re-enabled. There are also a few other minor improvements and bug fixes. Please upgrade to this ASAP if you are using JBrowse
1.10.7, 1.10.8, 1.10.9, 1.10.10 or 1.10.11, because we really need that analytics data.
Edit (Dec 11): realized just now that only 1.10.10 and 1.10.11 were affected. Forgot to account for branching and merging last night.

flatfile-to-json.plnow support a
--metadataargument that can add a
metadatastanza to track
configurations they generate.
- Multi-valued attributes in default feature detail popups are
displayed as a string of boxes, each containing a value, to avoid
misinterpretation. Thanks to Cris Lawrence for pointing out the
need for this.
- Re-enabled usage analytics reporting, which had been disabled by a
stray piece of debugging code since the 1.10.7 release.
- Fixed a bug in which the tooltip in canvas-based feature tracks
would sometimes display incorrect label or description text.
