The XNAT team is happy to announce the release of XNAT 1.7.3, now available at www.xnat.org/download. This release addresses a number of critical performance issues and introduces support for several new features. Issues addressed in the 1.7.3 release can be found in the XNAT 1.7.3 Release Notes.

New: A Solution for "Java-mageddon"

Java applets are officially dead, as all major browsers have ended support for them. In anticipation of this event, we have refactored the XNAT Image Upload applet and the XNAT Image Download applet for XNAT 1.7.3.

Uploading Images: Users can perform local anonymization and upload image sessions to XNAT with the new XNAT Upload Assistant desktop application. 

Downloading Images: Users can download image sessions into a streaming ZIP file using the new ZIP Downloader in XNAT 1.7.3.

New: Support for Container Services

At the 2016 XNAT Workshop, we debuted an alpha version of the Container Services plugin, which started to scratch the surface of the power of using a bundled Docker Server to run containerized processing on XNAT data. Since then, we have been working in concert with XNAT 1.7.3 development to create a version 1.0 of the Container Services plugin.

This plugin enables site administrators to run image processing and analysis routines embedded in Docker containers directly from XNAT.  XNAT manages data exchange between the container and the XNAT database, providing seamless integration and automation. The new web-based interface provides a user-friendly environment for configuring the service and container.
