Release Log

(needs to be updated with 2.0.1 through 2.0.5)

Roadmap:  Gossamer Health Version 2.0

  • Gossamer Health 2.0 to be released as a set of light weight turnkey virtual machine appliances

Gossamer Health Version 1.9.1 (5/1/11)

Gossamer Health Version 1.7.0-1.7.6 (live 3/07/11)

Added alphabetical menu ordering on interactive visualizations page. A radio button allows the user to toggle between geographical ordering based on federal region, and alphabetical ordering. The alphabetical ordering is based on a system configurable index. This index allows us, for example to order "Jurisdiction A – Region 1" as "Region 1" rather than "Jurisdiction A".
"Download Descriptive Data" from jurisdiction information now includes a number of formulas in the lower left corner tallying a variety of contained statistics.
The user now remains logged in after closing their browser. A logout button now appears at upper right corner of every page. Configurable timeout is implemented.
Gastro time series graphs added as a new feature. A "triple" graph that contains lines for ratio, count, and total on the same chart also added.
Menu structure simplified with "Daily" and "Weekly" time series links being combined. Menus on the time series graphs page allow selection of the period and the graph type ("ILI", "Gastro", or "Triple").
Interactive visualizations link changed to go directly to the graph page. The "Jurisdiction" radio choice is changed to "Compare Jurisdictions". The link used to point to an intermediary page. This change reduces the number of clicks needed to create graphs.
Items in the drop down menu on the Interactive visualizations page are listed hierarchically, based on regional components.
Changed page headers with new images and added footer on the home page
New images that display uploads for the last "last 100 days" added to the data timeliness page
