XNAT 1.6.5 is now available

We're happy to announce the release of XNAT 1.6.5, code-named Lemon Curd. You can download the latest XNAT release here.

For the 1.6.5 release, we're not sending out separate release notes. Instead we've created a filter on the XNAT issue tracker that lists all of the issues closed or resolved for the XNAT 1.6.5 release. These cover a large portion of the work done for 1.6.5 (there are a few others in private projects due to PHI or security concerns). This should make it a lot easier to search through the issues to find items that might be of particular interest or to understand what action was taken in regards to a particular issue.

Also for 1.6.5, we're not building virtual machines for download. But fear not! We still have you covered on this front. Instead of building VMs ourselves, we've created a Vagrant project that creates an XNAT 1.6.5 virtual machine for you. Full instructions are on the front page of that project's repo, but basically you just need to install Mercurial, VirtualBox, and Vagrant and run Vagrant with the project. We've been testing this the past couple of days and it works quite well!

Over the next couple of weeks, we'll continue to post about updated and enhanced features in XNAT 1.6.5 and add links to those from this page.

The following additional downloads are also available for XNAT 1.6.5:

As we mentioned with our last release, we have no real need to have code names, but it's more fun this way!

Over the next couple of days, we'll update this post with release notes, instructions for virtual machines, and, once we've actually had one, a picture of our 1.6.5 release cake. Stay tuned!

Thanks to James Dickson for the lemon curd photo and the lemon curd!
