Hello all! We are excited to announce the new features in this release. Here are some highlights

More theme options and dark mode

The jbrowse web and jbrowse desktop apps now have multiple themes that a user can pick between.

Extra themes can be defined via plugins or via your config file.

SVG export of more view types

Dotplot, circular, and linear synteny views have added an SVG export option. The SVG exports can incorporate the current theme, or use a default.
