Aug 29 2016

The PhenoTips development team is happy to announce the availability of the PhenoTips 1.3 Milestone 2 release. The highlights of the release are:

  • Patient record form
    • User interface improvements
    • Administrators can now disable visibility options globally, for example to remove support for open and hidden records
    • Global mode of inheritance and global age of onset are taken into account when determining suggestions for Diagnosis and "other phenotypes"
  • All Patient Records page
    • Added ability to filter by candidate gene
    • The author and creator columns now link to the actual user pages
  • Pedigree editor improvements
    • Added ability to select confirmed causal genes and to display rejected genes
    • Add ability to enter only year in pedigree date fields
    • Improved pedigree JSON export and import
  • REST APIs
    • A new RESTful API for accessing/managing patient record permissions, enabling users to access/manage patient record permissions: the owner, visibility, and collaborators
    • The XML output has been removed, only JSON is now returned by the REST services
    • Related resources are now more consistently linked, to support better discoverability
    • Allowed methods (GET, POST, PUT, DELETE...) are now listed for all resource links, reflecting both the methods supported by each resource, as well as the rights of the authenticated user
  • Push functionality improvements:
    • More user friendly interface
    • Most of patient data can be pushed except Date of death unknown, Pedigree, Medical reports, Obstetric history, Copy number variants and Additional files
    • Previously entered data can be cleared when pushing again after deleting it
  • Packaging
    • The Mac OS X .dmg package should now start when only the JRE is installed (previously it sometimes failed when JDK 1.6 was installed, but only the JRE for 1.7 or 1.8)
    • When installed on Windows, PhenoTips data is now stored under the current user's home directory by default, allowing installation under Program Files
    • User self-registration is disabled by default, an administrator must either re-enable self-registration or create user accounts
    • The PhenoTips interface is now translated in Spanish (support for the Spanish translation of HPO is on the way). Want to see PhenoTips translated in another language? Please contribute!
