IGV 2.10.0, released June 2021

This release includes the following new features and improvements:

New features

  • Support for displaying RNA and DNA base modification tags in BAM files, described in samtools/hts-specs Git issue #362. These tags are now implemented by several Oxford Nanopore tools that detect base modifications, including Megalodon and Guppy. (Git issue #945)
  • Allow filtering of feature/annotation tracks based on attributes, via Tracks > Filter Tracks. (Git issue #941)
  • New batch command: sortByAttribute

Bug fixes

  • Couldn't open .igv files from pre-signed Amazon S3 links. (Git issue #922
  • Tracks were not autoscaling when loading from a port or batch script. (Git issue #925)
  • Changing to autoscale or group autoscale on numeric tracks would not take effect until the user did something to cause a redraw, for example, pan or zoom the view.
  • Fixed issue with gene track translations. When the translation table was changed to "vertebrate mitochondrial" and then back to "standard", the translations in the RefSeq track were incorrect. (Git issue #923)

  • Tracks generated via Tools > Find Motif are now correctly saved in sessions. (Git issue #988
