i2b2 Release 1.7.08a Release Notes
Release Date: November 23, 2016
1.7.08a Release Summary
Release 1.7.08a is primarily focused on fixing and improving the queueing process. The main issue addressed in this release is a fix for an issue that was introduced in 1.7.08; An error was returned when a query timed out and moved on to the medium queue. Although the query continued to run it was misleading to users as they were informed it generated an error an was therefore no longer running. A number of other issues were uncovered during the development and testing of this release. A complete list of each issue can be found in the section titled Change Summary - i2b2 Core Software
