v2.6.1 Release

ยท 4 min read

Hello all, This ended up being a big release with a lot of new stuff!

  • Created the @jbrowse/react-app NPM package which effectively makes the jbrowse-web package NPM-installable. This is still new so let us know what you think. See the docs at and example usages at (this is pretty new, there may be more updates or changes to come with this package!)
  • Improved code sharing across web, desktop, and embedded products (this was a large refactor, if you see any bugs let us know!)
  • Improved display of inversions in the read cloud display (see screenshot)
  • Fixed persistent issue with jbrowse create CLI creating corrupted output (update your local install with npm install -g @jbrowse/cli)

Figure showing split long reads alignments on the read cloud display spanning an inversion showing forward (red) to reverse (blue) and back to forward again.


To install JBrowse 2 for the web, you can download the link above, or you can use the JBrowse CLI to automatically download the latest version. See the JBrowse web quick start for more details.
