New versions of the Yarra Client (0.51) and YarraServer (0.96) have been released, which provide minor improvements and bugfixes. As one improvement, the Task Queue in the WebGUI now has a tab that shows completed tasks. This can be used to re-process tasks from the WebGUI using different reconstruction parameters and can be handy during the development of reconstruction modules. The updates can be downloaded on the Download page.
A new version of Yarra Archive Search is available (version 0.13). The following changes have been made:
- The acquisition date is shown in a format that makes it easier to sort scans by date
- The total number of entries found is shown in a tooltip when hovering over the table
- The columns automatically expand to cover the full width of the table
A new version of the Yarra client has been released (version 0.50), which adds support for VE11B and fixes a bug when using VE11A (adjustments scans were not saved). The new version can be downloaded here.
A new tool called Yarra Archive Search (YAS) has been released, which provides a simple solution for cataloging raw-data (TWIX) files and searching in the database by information such as patient name, protocol type, or exam date. YAS can be used in combination with a Yarra server but also completely independently. Search requests are submitted via a web-based interface. Take a look at this page to learn more about YAS.
The new version 0.95 of the YarraServer package has been released. The new version now includes the WebGUI, which is not released as a separate package anymore. The WebGUI has been extended with a packaging system for easily installing and upgrading Yarra modules, as well as a simple mechanism for installing server updates. When upgrading or installing the new version on a server running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, it is required to update the GCC compiler and runtime libraries, as described here.
The next bigger update for YarraServer is currently being tested and will be released in the next few days.
Features that are coming with the update include:
- Packaging system for modules, enabling custom modules to be installed, updated, and removed conveniently through the WebGUI
- Easy-to-use update mechanism for the server core
- Multiple transfer modules can be executed
- Macro for executing Matlab
Starting with the next version, the WebGUI will be distributed together with the server component and will not be available anymore as separate package. In addition, Ubuntu 14.04 LTS will become the standard platform. YarraServer will still run on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, but it will be required to install an update of the GNU C++ compiler.
An update is available for the YarraServer (v 0.91) and YarraWebGUI (v 0.17) packages. These updates provide bugfixes and minor enhancements. Please replace all support files of the Yarra WebGUI (in the subfolder “html”) when upgrading from older versions.
A new version of the client package with a bug fix for VB19A has been released. The Yarra Client Package version 0.49 can be downloaded here.
The support forum for Yarra is now online and can be accessed using this link. Please register and post there if you have ideas and questions about Yarra, or if you need installation support. We are trying to respond to all questions as fast as possible.
The first version of the YarraLink sequence is available, which provides access to the Yarra Offline-Reconstruction client (ORT) in the form of an IDEA sequence. This avoids having to install an application executable on the MR system and also offers workflow advantages. Read more about YarraLink here.
