trackSelector.initialSortColumnconfiguration variable 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 out.
Fixed a bug in which
prepare-refseqs.plcan crash when used with Bio::DB::Das::BioSQL. Thanks to Brian Osborne for contributing the fix.
Fixed failures of setup.sh legacy BAM support installation caused by samtools taking down their old SourceForge subversion repository.
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
plugins->->locationconfiguration 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 log.
Added a workaround for problems with some types of nonstandard Perl installations. Thanks to Rebecca Boes for pointing this out.
