Changes in this release:
to the faceted track selector that can be used to set the initial
sort order for the grid in the faceted track selector. Thanks to
Alexie Papanicolaou for suggesting this.
Made Wiggle density tracks indicate out-of-range values using
separate clip markers at the top and bottom of the color field,
rather than showing the out-of-range region as a third color (or
black or white). Thanks to Gregg Helt for suggesting this.
Added support for a
quickHelpconfiguration variable that lets
administrators customize the contents of the Help->General dialog.
Thanks to Gregg Helt for suggesting this.
Rewrote GFF3 direct-access backend to make it more
standards-compliant and capable of parsing all attributes of a
feature. Thanks to Jillian Rowe and Colin Davenport for pointing
out the need for this.
Fixed arrowheads on HTMLFeatures not always being visible when the
viewing region is being panned back and forth. Thanks to Gregg
Helt for pointing this out.
Fixed a bug in which editing a track’s configuration JSON through
the track menu when the faceted track selector was enabled
sometimes caused another track to be deactivated. Thanks to Steffi
Geisen for pointing this out.
Fixed a subtle bug in which not completing a track-dragging gesture
from the Simple track selector into the genome view caused the
track handle to not disappear from the track selector when the
track is turned on later. Thanks to Gregg Helt for pointing this
Fixed a bug in which
prepare-refseqs.plcan crash when used with
Bio::DB::Das::BioSQL. Thanks to Brian Osborne for contributing the
Fixed failures of setup.sh legacy BAM support installation caused
by samtools taking down their old SourceForge subversion
Fixed a bug in which highlighted regions were not always drawn
correctly at initial load time. Thanks to Steffi Geisen for
pointing this out.
Added support for a
attribute, making it possible for plugins to be loaded from outside
the JBrowse plugins directory.
Fixed a bug in which Wiggle track value displays behaved a bit
oddly with some kinds of mouse movements. Thanks to Gwendoline
Andres for pointing this out.
logMessagesglobal configuration variable that, if set to
true, records messages on the JBrowse message bus in the browser
Added a workaround for problems with some types of nonstandard Perl
installations. Thanks to Rebecca Boes for pointing this out.
