    In ISAcreator 1.4 we have made a very… 

    In ISAcreator 1.4, we have made a very significant release, improving many aspects of the codebase, solving many of the problems encountered in previous releases, adding new functionality and further improving the user interface. We won’t go into everything here, but will list the major changes:

    Better performance: We’ve tweaked the code, refactored and improved performance and memory load drastically.

    Light mode and advanced mode. Now you can run the creator without the added complication of the wizard or mapper functionalities. If you need them, they are there, but if you don’t then just use the light version.

    New error display: remember the ugly list of errors you had when the ISAtab wasn’t valid? Well, that’s gone, here’s what the new version looks like.

    New ontology lookup interface and the ability to browse within restricted ontologies (e.g. a Label should come from ChEBI) either on the entire ontology level (if no branch of the ontology is specified) or on a specific branch so that the users selections are more targeted.

    Automated annotation of your free text with ontology terms using the NCBO Annotator service.

    You can download it for Mac, Linux and Windows.

    Mass improvements to the ISA Configurator version 1.3 

    We’ve been working a lot to improve the code base and the usability of our tools! If you start using the ISAconfigurator, you will notice many improvements, not just those listed in this post in terms of reliability, performance and overall look and feel. The new version of the ISAconfigurator is now available for Mac, Linux & Windows.

    New interface

    New menu screen for the configurator.

    Cleaner editing view.

    New Ontology Configuration UI & Performance Improvements

    We have long been providing an easy way to browse across OLS and BioPortal resources, and with our novel configuration tool we are also able to restrict ontology browsing in certain fields to remove burden from the user. Our previous versions weren’t so intuitive to use, so we’ve overhauled the interface to make it easier to restrict ontologies in various fields.

    The configuration interface.

    The cool thing is that the majority of the code used to develop this interface is called as a library from the ISAcreator codebase, so there’s no reason why other Java developers can’t make use of the ISAcreator components in their tools as well!
