v2.9.0 Release

ยท 2 min read

This release adds a new feature for keeping track of your "Recently used tracks" and tagging "Favorite tracks" . This will be valuable especially to users and organizations who have large tracklists!

We also added the ability to load "single file hubs" from UCSC. These must be manually pasted in the "Add connection" but in the future, we may add ability to auto-load the hubs via the URL bar or similar. You can find a large amount of these single file hubs from GenArk!

Finally, this release also fixes an issue people saw with auto-updates for JBrowse Desktop on Mac failing.


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.
