We are pleased to announce that Opal 4.6 is now available. Opal is OBiBa’s core data management application for biobanks.
In this release:
This release is expected to be fully backward compatible.
Upgrade actions: Opal upgrade itself automatically except for the configuration files. This release introduces a DataSHIELD logging format and the logger tool needs to be configured accordingly. See the default configuration for the DataSHIELD logging . The change simply consists of changing the log "encoder" to a more descriptive one:
<appender name="datashield" class="ch.qos.logback.core.rolling.RollingFileAppender"> ... <encoder class="net.logstash.logback.encoder.LogstashEncoder"> <excludeMdcKeyName>method</excludeMdcKeyName> <excludeMdcKeyName>created</excludeMdcKeyName> </encoder> </appender>
This release was possible thanks to the funding of the EUCAN-Connect program.
