v1.7.9 Release

ยท 2 min read

We are pleased to present v1.7.9!

This release features several bugfixes and improvements submitted by community members, including a CLI fix when specifying --indexFile with CSI files, and a new feature to get FASTA metadata from an external file.

Additionally, we have switched to canvas2svg for SVG exports, which can now handle more sophisticated operations like bezierCurves (used for sashimi-style arc in RNA-seq data), and circles (used by jbrowse-plugin-gwas)

Before (note bad intron and lack of arcs rendered on bottom track)

After (fixed intron rendering and arcs)


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.
