v1.6.5 Release

ยท 2 min read

We are pleased to announce v1.6.5!

This features some various bugfixes to the @jbrowse/cli tool, including better support for large config files with the admin-server, and renaming --out to --root for the admin-server.

It also includes two important fixes related to stats estimation in 1.6.4, one where tracks would display an error on sparse tracks and another where tracks would fail to perform stats estimation on BAM files due to a type confusion.


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.
