JBrowse 1.10.2 maintenance release

JBrowse 1.10.2 has been released, with fixes for some minor issues, and some minor improvements to the CanvasFeatures track.

Files for download:

Changes in this release:

  • Added mouse-over ‘tooltips’ to to CanvasFeatures tracks that show
    the a feature’s label and description when the mouse hovers over
    it. Thanks to Daniel Kasenberg for implementing this.
  • Strand arrowheads in CanvasFeatures tracks now attempt to stay
    visible on the screen, like they do in HTMLFeatures tracks. Thanks
    to Daniel Kasenberg for implementing this.
  • Fixed bugs and inefficiencies preventing JBrowse from handling very
    dense BigWig files. Thanks to Michael Axtell for pointing this out
    (issue #312).
  • Fixed a bug in which features were not always laid out correctly in
    CanvasFeature tracks when the display mode is set to “compact”.
  • Fixed a bug causing the text labels of mismatching bases in
    Alignments2 tracks (i.e. Alignments canvas glyphs) to be slightly
    misaligned vertically when feature labels are turned on (they are
    off by default for Alignments glyphs).
  • Fixed a bug preventing the defaultTracks configuration variable
    from operating correctly.
