Changes in this release:

  • Fixed a bug preventing loading of JBrowse in some browsers. Thanks
    to Steffi Geisen for pointing this out.

  • Fixed a bug in the BigWig data backend that prevented some BigWig
    files with large numbers of reference sequences from displaying.
    Thanks to Gregg Helt for providing sample data to help isolate
    this.

  • Fixed a bug in the BigWig data backend that prevented BigWig files
    rendering in Safari. Thanks to Gregor Rot for his help in isolating this.

  • Worked around a bug in Safari 6 (and probably earlier) in which
    HTTP byte-range requests are erroneously cached. Thanks to Gregor
    Rot for pointing out the Safari problems.

  • Fixed some minor styling bugs in the facet menus of the faceted
    track selector.

  • Fixed blurry edges of location trapezoid in Firefox (Eric Derohanian).
