The new features in this release are:
Various fixes have also been delivered, including:
NaNbeing displayed when copy/pasting in certain contexts
There is also a significant speed improvement when working with wide tables (hundreds of variables).
Previously the only way to refresh the Data Catalog was to run the
services/admin/refreshcatalog service. Now, any user can refresh it using the refresh button for a specific LIBREF in the VIEW menu.
It is now possible to view the library info on a new (linkable) library page. Useful metrics such as the engine used, the physical size of the library (if BASE), permissions, table count etc are surfaced.
Using the ds_meta macro a large number of dataset specific metrics are now available on both VIEW and EDIT pages.
This is a handy place to check for common issues such as a lack of dataset compression, or the presence of a significant number of logically deleted records.
You can now move forwards and backwards through observations in the Edit Record modal, FSEDIT style!
To assist users, admins and developers with understanding exactly what is going on insde the Data Controller services, we have published the source code to https://code.datacontroller.io. The programs are documented using Doxygen and sasjs doc.
We deployed Data Controller to the SAS environment of a Government customer this year, and we're grateful to them for performing some very extensive and intensive testing! A fairly large number of issues were found and fixed over the last 3-4 months and so an upgrade is highly recommended for all customers. The deployment page is here.
The following items are on our 'would like to build' list. If you're interested in any of these, and there's a commercial opportunity involved, then - let's chat!
