New Upload Assistant and DicomBrowser application installers available

Due to the deprecation of the Java plugin on many of the newer browser platforms, we've been working on getting a stand-alone application version of the XNAT Upload Assistant applet going for a while. We have finally succeeded, with the help of install4j and the gracious donation of an open-source project license to the XNAT team from the kind folks at ej-technologies GmhB. As a great side effect, we also have a new application wrapper and installer for DicomBrowser, which has been desperately needing a facelift and touch-up for a while now.

These applications are both available as beta releases! DicomBrowser has gone through fairly extensive testing and have a canonical release fairly soon, but the installer and OS-specific application wrappers are new. The Upload Assistant code base was taken directly from the existing XNAT Upload Assistant applet, but with fairly extensive modifications to work as a stand-alone application. If you find any issues or bugs in the course of using either of these applications, please let us know by sending an email to bugs@xnat.org.

You can download the installers for the Upload Assistant from the following links:

We will continue to work on these applications and provide updated and new functionality in the upcoming months. Feel free to contact us with feature requests or comments.
