This release fixes an important issue where @jbrowse/react-linear-genome-view and other embedded packages did not work with v1.5.5 due to a babel misconfiguration apologies to all affected!
Also we now can access the parent feature in jexl callbacks with parent(feature) or get(feature, 'parent') which is often needed when coloring subfeatures like exon/CDS features
This release also was made because v1.5.6 and v1.5.7 only were half-published to npm, so v1.5.8 fixes it here
