Documentation
Here are the full release notes for LabKey version 22.7 (July 2022).

LabKey Server

Authentication

  • Control the page size used for LDAP Synchronization. (docs) Also available in version 22.7.2.

Samples and Data Classes

  • Data Class and Sample Type grids can now be filtered by "Current folder, project, and shared project". (docs)

Studies

  • Editors can access a read-only view of dataset properties and review the import history via a Details link above dataset grids. (docs)

Panorama

  • Access mean and CV of any metric across last N runs
  • Normalize area to the TIC
  • Skyline document ordering is now used for peptides/molecules in QC folders
  • Protein groups (mapping a peptide to multiple possible proteins) will be represented in Panorama folders when a Skyline document. (docs) Also available in version 22.7.2.
  • Sequences are based at 1 (instead of 0) for consistency. (docs) Also available in version 22.7.2.

Integrations

Administration

  • URLs no longer end with question marks when there are no parameters. See below for steps developers may need to take if they were relying on this question mark in building custom URLs.

Distribution Changes and Upgrade Notes

  • LabKey has been updated to use Spring Framework 5.3.22. Developers can read about potential backwards compatibility issues below.
  • The Microsoft SQL Server JDBC driver is now supported. In a future release, support for the jTDS driver will be removed. (docs)

Developer Resources


Sample Manager

The Sample Manager Release Notes list features by monthly version.

  • Searchable, filterable, standardized user-defined fields on workflow enable teams to create structured requests for work, define important billing codes for projects and eliminate the need for untracked email communication.
  • Storage grids now show multiple tabs for different sample types. With this improvement, you can understand what samples you're working with anywhere in the application.
  • By prohibiting sample deletion when they are referenced in an ELN, Sample Manager helps you further protect the integrity of your data.
  • The leftmost column of sample data, typically the Sample ID, is always shown as you examine wide datasets, making it easy to remember what sample's data you were looking at.
  • Easily capture amendments to signed Notebooks when a discrepancy is detected to ensure the highest quality entries and data capture, tracking the events for integrity.
  • Send sample information directly to Bartender for easier printing and managing of sample labels.
  • When exploring a Sample of interest, you can easily find and review any associated notebooks.
  • Aliquots can have fields that are not inherited from the parent sample. Administrators can control which parent sample fields are inherited and which can be set independently for the sample and aliquot. (docs)
  • Drag within editable grids to quickly populate fields with matching strings or number sequences. (docs)
  • When exporting a multi-tabbed grid to Excel, see sample counts and which view will be used for each tab. (docs)

Biologics

The Biologics release notes list features by monthly version.

  • Searchable, filterable, standardized user-defined fields on workflow enable teams to create structured requests for work, define important billing codes for projects and eliminate the need for untracked email communication.
  • Storage grids now show multiple tabs for different sample types. With this improvement, you can understand what samples you’re working with anywhere in the application.
  • By prohibiting sample deletion when they are referenced in an ELN, LabKey Biologics helps you further protect the integrity of your data.
  • The leftmost column of sample data, typically the Entity ID, is always shown as you examine wide datasets, making it easy to remember what sample's data you were looking at.
  • Easily capture amendments to signed Notebooks when a discrepancy is detected to ensure the highest quality entries and data capture, tracking the events for integrity.
  • Send sample information directly to Bartender for easier printing and managing of sample labels.
  • When exploring a Registry Entity, Sample, or Media of interest, you can easily find and review any associated notebooks.
  • Before you had to dig through the audit tables to piece together the event history of a sample but now each sample's history can be easily viewed in an understandable way on the Sample Timeline.
  • Aliquoting of media batches is now supported, allowing you to determine their final storage quantities and register them as such.
  • Aliquots can have fields that are not inherited from the parent sample. Administrators can control which parent sample fields are inherited and which can be set independently for the sample and aliquot. (docs)
  • Drag within editable grids to quickly populate fields with matching strings or incrementing integers. (docs)
  • When exporting a multi-tabbed grid to Excel, see the count and which view will be used for each tab. (docs)
  • Use the Sample Finder to find based on any ancestor entity from the Bioregistry. The lineage backbone tracks existing entity relationships relevant to samples. (docs)
  • Search for data across projects in Biologics. (docs)

Client APIs and Development Notes

  • LabKey has been updated to use Spring Framework 5.3.22. This version of Spring now treats HTTP requests with overlapping GET and POST parameters as if there are multiple values. For integer parameters, this fails to parse as it's treated as a delimited concatenation of the duplicate values. For string parameters, you get the concatenated version. Developers with code passing such duplicate parameters will need to delete either the GET or POST version of the parameter from the request.
  • URLs no longer end with question marks when there are no parameters. If developers have code using simple string concatenation of parameters (i.e. expecting this question mark) they may need to update their code to use the more reliable addParameter() method. Through the 22.11 release, it will be possible to 'restore' the trailing question mark temporarily while developers update their code.

The symbol indicates a feature available in a Premium Edition of LabKey Server.
