We have made available a release of IGB 5.5.

IGB 5.5 is an incremental release, with UI improvements, enhanced memory management, and assorted bugfixes. (Please see the release notes for more details.)

IGB 4.56 released

We are pleased to announce that version 4.56 of IGB has been released. This is primarily a bug-fix update, but a few minor new features are added, such as the display of cytobands.

This version corresponds with the version described in the newly-updated User Guide.

Find these on http://genoviz.sourceforge.net

Note: Be sure to download the correct version. IGB version 3 is being downloaded more often than we would expect. IGB version 4.56 has many features and usability enhancements relative to that old version. I have updated the name of the old package to emphasize that it is out of date. You are still free to download it if it is of interest to you.

The IGB User Guide has been updated to include the most recent versions of IGB, up to February 2007.
