Version 0.14 of EASY MEASURE brings with it a number of user interface changes that help consolidate the user experience, as well as improvements to the activity log and auditing.
Image and experiment details panels
Functionality previously found on the View details and Delete image panels has been moved to the Image details panel. In order to accommodate this functionality, two new tabs named View and Delete have been added to the Image details panel. The complete list of tabs found on the Image details panel is: Overview, Files, Metadata, View, Edit and Delete.
The Image details panel View tab works almost identically to the previous View details panel, with one exception. When you hit the Apply button, changes to the view such as how an image is displayed and the ways that you interact with it, are applied in the user interface but they are not saved with the image. Therefore, the next time you open your image in EASY MEASURE, the view changes that you applied will not be remembered. To save view changes, so that they are applied the next time you open your image, tick the Update view checkbox.
The Image details panel Delete tab works the same way as the Delete image panel used to.
The Experiment details panel has been updated in the same way as the Image details panel. Functionality previously found on the View details and Delete experiment panels has been moved to the Experiment details panel. Similar to the Image details panel, two new tabs named View and Delete have been added to the Experiment details panel. The complete list of tabs found on the Experiment details panel is: Overview, Results, View, Edit and Delete.
The Experiment details panel View tab works the same was as the Image details panel View tab, which is described above.
The Experiment details panel Delete tab works the same way as the Delete experiment panel used to.
The way that you access the Import image panel has changed. The panel is now opened by clicking the import icon found in the top right hand corner of the Image list page. To open the Image list page, select Images from the Resources menu.
There is a new way to run a Cavalieri volume experiment. The Run experiment panel can now be opened by clicking the run (+) icon found in the top right hand corner of the Experiment list page. To open the Experiment list page, select Experiments from the Resources menu.
It is still possible to run an experiment from an image landing page by selecting the Run Cavalieri volume experiment menu item from the Image menu. The result is that you are taken directly to the Experiment list page with the Run experiment panel open and an image automatically selected.
A Notes field has been added to images and experiments. Notes fields can be used to store up to 4096 characters of free format text.
Menu items have been added to the menu bar that directly open tabs on the Image details and Experiment details panels. From an image landing page, the Image menu contains menu items named Image overview, Image files, Image metadata, Image view, Edit image and Delete image, that open Overview, Files, Metadata, View, Edit and Delete tabs respectively on the Image details panel.
Similarly, from an experiment landing page, the Experiment menu contains menu items named Experiment overview, Experiment results, Experiment view, Edit experiment and Delete experiment, that open Overview, Results, View, Edit and Delete tabs on the Experiment details panel.
The View details menu item on the View menu of image and experiment landing pages has been removed.
The Import an image menu item on the Resources menu has been removed.
Activity log and auditing
The Activity log user interface has been improved so that it uses the same grid control that is found on the Image list, Experiment list and Tag list pages.
Auditing has been implemented for create tag, edit tag, delete tag, edit image and edit experiment actions, while various improvements have been made to the auditing of long running jobs such as import image, run experiment, delete image and delete experiment.
A new development environment has been built so that software changes can be tested without impacting clients who connect to the production environment. Only when a software change has been rigorously tested in the development environment is it propagated to the production environment.
