JBrowse 1.9.8 released

Robert Buels-2
Hi all,

JBrowse 1.9.8 has been released, with fixes for some minor issues, a
performance improvement when many HTML-based tracks are open, and a new
yScalePosition configuration option for all tracks can can be set to
“left”, “right”, or “center” to change where the y-axis scale is displayed.

It can be downloaded from http://jbrowse.org/jbrowse-1-9-8

Changes in this release:

  * Removed "XX has no data for this chromosome" popup warning message.
    It was just annoying and not very useful.

  * Added an optional "yScalePosition" element to track configs that
    allows configs with Y axes to have those axes positioned on the
    left or right side of the view, as well as in the center.  Thanks
    to Alexis Grimaldi for making this change.

  * Fixed a bug in which NCList-based tracks display with an error for
    reference sequences on which they have no data.  Thanks to Michael
    Axtell for pointing this out.

  * Improved GFF3 handling in the File->Open tool, fixed a bug in the
    GFF3 parser in which an empty (.) source column caused the GFF3
    parser to crash.

  * Improved scrolling speed when many HTML feature tracks are active.

  * Fixed a bug in which the browser can fail to start for a reference
    sequence that has never been seen before.

  * Fixed a confusing behavior in JBrowse/Store/SeqFeature/REST in
    which the URLs it constructs to fetch from did not always have a
    '/' where one would expect.  Thanks to Alex Kalderimis for pointing
    this out.


Happy browsing.  ;-)
