2018MAY:

  • ICT-10321: we have a new DRA (Data Reducer Assignment) tool!!! This will replace the DRM Tool functionality and additionally allow data reducers to manage their own availability. Component lead: Alfonso Trejo.
  • BUG: ICT-12028: issue with PT/AQUA inconsistent rms values is fixed

2018JUN:

2018APR deployment (containing 2018MAR+2018APR releases)

QA0 and QA2:

2018MAR:

  • ICT-11459: the ASDM data is precomputed so that loading EB/OUS info in both QA0 and QA2 AQUA should be much faster

2018APR:

  • BUG: ICT-12535: ephemeris coverage plots should now be displayed again – AQUA stopped doing this for some reason
  • BUG: ICT-12483: coverage information should now be fixed for TP observations. This could not be fully implemented due to issues reading the relevant data in the ASDM. The size and orientation of the rectangular area should now be correct, however the observed rectangle may still be offset from the requested position in the QA0 plot. We are working on a long-term fix for this.

QA2:

2018MAR:

  • ICT-12194: in the Advanced Search one can now search for OUSes by a string in the comments (basic functionality only; more sophisticated OR/AND functionality to come in ICT-12655 in a future release), by any combination of data reducer/DRM, and pretty much all possible combinations of parameters
  • ICT-12193: the initial values of the QA2 parameters (sensitivity, beamsize) entered in the ‘Finish’ dialogue can now be edited by either the assigned data reducer or anybody with the DRM role in the Summary tab during the reviewing phase. The ‘Finish’ button is now disabled once the ‘Awaiting DRM decision’ flag has been set.
  • ICT-12234: Warning pop-up if DRM tries to set a QA2 PASS/SEMI-PASS state when they should not (QA2 parameters have not been entered, processing doesn’t include imaging, OUS is in the wrong state)
  • ICT-12231: ‘Re-observe’ option no longer available from ‘Finish’ dialogue for DRM users
  • BUG: ICT-12377: re-saving user-defined searches should now work correctly

2018APR:

  • ICT-11942: Support QA0 semi-pass only workflow
  • ICT-11996: Re-ingest / new upload option in AQUA after ingestion error
  • ICT-12235: Further improvements to e-mail alerts: alerts to CS, e-mail alert subject contains new state, ‘Finish’ comments included in alerts, DR QA2 alert contains QA2 flag and comment
  • ICT-12230: Display the QA2 history, including all Final QA2 comments and Fail reasons
  • BUG: ICT-12741: when ingestion fails, the notification pop-up now shows possibly useful information
  • BUG: ICT-12743: OUSes following the new QA0 semi-pass only workflow now show up in AQUA

QA0:

2018APR:

  • ICT-7630: use Tsys at representative frequency rather than the average
  • ICT-12199: Display more info from aoscheck in AQUA in the summary and phase tabs
  • ICT-12232: The phase tab summary table now shows the spw central frequency (not the BB central frequency) and includes the bandwidth of the spectral window
  • BUG: ICT-12619: spectral window rest frequencies should now be correctly calculated

APA:

2018APR:

  • ICT-11145: Pipeline Agent: create a mini-weblog also for manual Single Dish processing
  • ICT-12351: Handling of Pipeline run directories before delivery

 

Patched into 2018FEB (12.04.2018 version)
