JBrowse 1.9.6 maintenance release

JBrowse 1.9.6 has been released, with a few more bug fixes and a new --workdir option for generate-names.pl.

Files for download:

Changes in this release:

  • Fixed a bug in which the reference sequence selection dropdown menu
    did not work for purely numeric reference sequence names. Thanks
    to Matt Bomhoff for pointing this out.

  • Fixed a bug with some types of BAM files in which not all BAM
    features would be displayed. Thanks to Ignazio Carbone for
    pointing this out. (issue #276).

  • Fixed bug in which File->Open failed to open GFF3 files with
    embedded sequences in a FASTA section.

  • Added a --workdir option to generate-names.pl to allow name
    index building on a faster filesystem than the one that will
    ultimately store the name index. Thanks to Alexie Papanicolaou for
    suggesting this. (issue #273).
