Some of the new features include:
  • Numerous UI and performance improvements, including easier navigation between annotated elements via the Annotator Panel.
  • Better server and client-side reporting.
  • It is now possible to also include metadata on import.
  • Upgrade to Java 8 / GWT 2.8, and updated JBrowse. 
  • Apollo 2.0.5 uses the latest JBrowse commit as of 2016-12-09 (#9334e76fd). Use ./apollo clean-all or install from a formal release download for best performance.

Some important bug fixes:

  • Improved security for non-public genomes.
  • Fixed for going between logged-out mode and the Annotator Panel while retaining history.
  • Improved display of sequence over the annotation after moving the annotation to the opposite strand.
