Welcome to Architect 5.0.0

This release includes the following fixes and improvements:

  • Updated the app to use newer node and electron versions. This should increase the speed and compatibility of the app.
  • Provided better validation for the join element of filters/queries. Join is only required when multiple rules are present.
  • Implemented a more obvious back button in the protocol view, so that users can return to the start screen more easily.
  • Updated the preview mode to use Network Canvas 5.0.0
  • Fixed the preview of assets in the asset browser and the information interface.
  • Notarized the app, allowing it to be downloaded and installed on macOS Catalina (10.15.x)

Known Issues

  • When a select box is open, it is possible to scroll the body of the page, which causes the select items to detach from the box.
    • Strategies for mediation: Avoid scrolling the main page while a select item is open.
    • Long term resolution: Block body scrolling or adjust select children position relative to body scroll (#155)

This app is part of a free, open-source suite of tools for the collection of social network data developed through the Complex Data Collective, a registered not-for-profit, and funded by the National Institutes of Health (R01 DA042711). Network Canvas is a collaboration between Northwestern University and the University of Oxford managed out of Northwestern’s Institute for Sexual and Gender Minority Health and Wellbeing.
