This document covers changes to the system with various releases that are relevant to developers and system administrators. This covers primarily changes to data models, admin features, and other 'behind-the-scenes' changes that are not likely to be of interest to typical users. For release notes that are user focused, see the EMERSE User Release Notes.

Version 3.5 (2017-12-20)

  • Various tables and column names have been renamed to better reflect their current purpose. Examples include changing document_index to document_source, renaming lucene_shards to SOLR_INDEX, and renaming columns in Document_fields: Lucene_name to schema_field_name.

  • Made removal of leading zeroes configurable when uploading patient medical record numbers. There is now a new property in emerse.properties: patientList.stripLeadingZerosOnMRNInsert. See 'EMERSE Configuration and Optimization Guide' for details.

  • Database build now based on Liquibase, which should make implementations as well as future upgrades easier to support.

  • Diagnostic page added to project for installation troubleshooting. The page is available to admins and can be found at diagnostics.html.
