We are pleased to announce a new version of the FAIRDOM-SEEK Platformversion 1.11.2

This contains contains some improvements and bugfixes, including:

  • Finalised Sample and Sample Type read/write API, along with completed documentation.
  • Bioschemas improvements with greater compliance, and the addition of conformsTo clause to indicate which version is currently being used.
  • Recommended licenses, which appear at the top of the list. The FAIRDOM-SEEK admin has the ability to set and change these under Settings. The license ID is now also validated that it is recognised when set through the API.
  • Fix to a critical issue with Sample and Custom metadata attributes of type Boolean, which prevented them being set through the UI. This also includes a fix to allows an empty value if the attribute is optional.
  • Allow project join requests to be approved where the optional Institution Country is missing.
  • Show the date a user joined on their profile page, visible to all logged in registered users.
