Yesterday we made the library and new project file for 1.6.4 available for download at SourceForge. It took a while but we have some great new features for you:
- Import functionality for Respondents, Appointments and Answers
- A project can define default track fields to be added to all new tracks
- Two new track field types were added: caregiver and treatment, both linked to appointments
- It was made easier to add other track field types at project level
- Easy customization of site template using Less
- OpenRosa surveys now can use geopoints, images and one repeating group
- And of course some bugfixes
Because of code changes in the library existing projects need to be careful when upgrading. Check the release notes carefully before upgrading and perform the search and replace code edits described there. If you find any problems, please report them in our bugtracker.
As always: we try to do out best to keep things understandable but if you get lost or feel information is lacking in the documentation please feel free to give us a shout or (preferably) add some information to the wiki yourself!
We have not added a lot of news to the site lately so that gave us plenty of time to create a shiny new version of GemsTracker. As of today the new 1.6.3 version is available for download at SourceForge. We did not skip 1.6.2, we were so busy we just forgot to put a message here. So if you are coming from 1.6.1, make sure to check the release notes for both 1.6.2 and 1.6.3!
There could be some incompatibilities with existing code, so make sure to read the release notes carefully before upgrading. If you find any problems, please report them in our bugtracker.
As there are some cool new features stay tuned for updates to the documentation or help use to improve it by adding some articles yourself if you find missing or incorrect information.
It has been a while since our last release but finally 1.6.1 is here. We fixed some bugs, improved code and documentation and added some new features. We don’t expect any backward incompatibility so upgrading from 1.6 should be easy. Give it a try today but ofcourse first read the release notes carefully before upgrading and if you find any problems, don’t hesitate to report them in the bugtracker.
You can find the download at SourceForge.
