  • Add site code field to sample entry (free text)
  • Add collection time and received time to both sample entry and to confirmation entry screen


  • Bug fixes
  • A new report, named validation backlog, showing the tests waiting for validation in each test section was created. The purpose of this report is to save the supervisor from having to click through each validation screen. 
  • It is now possible to accept a result even if there are no results or the result has not changed during the validation. A checkbox was provided to force the result to technical acceptance.
  • The rejection flag on the result entry form as an indicator that a result has been rejected during validation  is now turn on as default.  It can be turned off in the administration panel.
  • The association of tests with a panel is tracked.  If the panel is selected then those tests are associated with the panel.  If the tests are selected without selecting the panel then they are not associated with the panel.

Please send us any feedback you may have about the release.


  1. Congratulations on the new release, but where is it? You don't provide a link to its download location, nor does the source repository show any indication (like a tag or branch) indicating that a release has been done ...

  2. Good point - the repository location was changing - we'll post the repository with the next release announcement.
