v1.7.10 Release

· 3 min read

We are pleased to present the latest JBrowse 2 release!

This has some great new features including

Feature detail formatter

Here is an example which adds a link to the "Name" panel in the feature details. It uses the jexl callback that returns an object with keys for each field to modify (e.g. the key name is used here). See

"type": "FeatureTrack",
"trackId": "ncbi_gff_hg19_2",
"name": "NCBI RefSeq",
"formatDetails": {
"feature": "jexl:{name:'<a href=''>''</a>'}"
"assemblyNames": ["hg19"],
"adapter": {
"type": "Gff3TabixAdapter",
"gffGzLocation": {
"uri": ""
"index": {
"location": {
"uri": ""
