Release of PetDB v.2.6.1

Jul 2013. Check out the new version of PetDB, v.2.6.1, with new features and bug fixes that allow new feedback mechanisms and easier ways to download and view relevant data and metadata.

  • New feedback buttons on the data download page: Have you ever reached the data download page and realized you had a comment or question about data from a specific reference? Click on the new feedback icons in the data download table to send an email directly to the PetDB managers. 
  • Tag-along data downloads allow you to add on additional data types, such as majors, traces, or isotope ratios, to your initial query for samples. This allows users to preserve their sample selection and download additional data, for those situations where repeating the query with new additional new data types would change the sample selection.
  • New Analysis Comment display for all data types displays more analysis metadata to the user.
  • New layout and style for the "Select Reference List Data" page when searching by Reference
  • Notification of "In Progress" papers on the Reference page
  • The Excel download option for PetDB References has been moved out of the public interface while improvements are being made. Email if you have questions about this.
  • Bug fix so that negative numbers can be entered into the map search boxes on the Chrome and IE browsers.

Let us know what you think about the new version by emailing, or by clicking the orange feedback button on the right-hand side of the webpage.
