New Features and Major Changes compared to release 16.05

  • Increased Flexibility of meta data structures
    • Data set kinds now belong to each dataset instead of their types.
    • Project-level samples (switched off by default since most users have developed plugins that are not ready for this). We recommend to have a test environment to review if is possible and worth to enable it in a case by case basis. (see Project samples)
  • API v3 is feature complete now (for an introduction see openBIS V3 API)
  • Semantic annotations (see openBIS V3 API#semantic_annotations)
  • pyBIS (openBIS API for Python/Jupyter) (see pyBIS)
  • BigDataLink module. This allows to use openBIS as metadata repository for large data stored on a filesystem external to openBIS (for an introduction see Big Data Link)
    Authorisation at the project level (see Authorization)
  • Internal component upgrades
    • Some frameworks updated, mainly to avoid security issues as reported by some automatic tools and third party penetration tests.
    • Source code now available in git with easy to follow instructions to build.
    • Upgraded Java version to Java 8


Please note that the components below will be still available, but no further development will be done on them and no bug fixes should be expected.

  • API v1
  • Screening Plugin
  • Proteomics Plugin
