Release Summary

The current version of the i2b2 Workbench software that has been released is 2.0.01. This release includes some improvements and fixes many issues, the most significant one being a problem with the i2b2 Workbench not running on newer apple machines. Since the problem is with a third-party software and out of the hands of the i2b2 community we have decided to create two new virtual machines (VM) that mac users can download and use in their environment.

      • The first VM (i2b2WB-VM-lin-mac-2001) contains the i2b2 Workbench application and can be used by i2b2 users who want to run the i2b2 Workbench in Linux machine VM on a mac (or any other machine with VirtualBox).
      • The second VM (i2b2WB-VM-lin-src-2001) contains the source code for the i2b2 Workbench, Eclipse Neon, and the i2b2 Workbench application. It can be used by developers who want to access & run the source code in a Linux environment.

Some other improvements include updating the i2b2 Workbench to run on a newer version of Eclipse (Neon) and using JAR files to add new plugins to your i2b2 Workbench. Several improvements were also made to the Timeline view and are included in this release.

      • Improvements to the pop-ups that display when hovering over a tic in the timeline view. Can see a traversal list of all observations and the ability to click on an observation to see the details.
      • New 'already-read' and 'starring' markings to indicate which observations have been read or starred by you.
      • Advanced text searches are improved in Note viewer
