I’d like to use this thread to make short announcements on new and upcoming releases of HADES packages.
ParallelLogger 2.0.1 has been released to CRAN. Probably the most important change is the removal of the XML package dependency. XML was the only HADES dependency requiring R version 4. With this dependency gone, people can still use older R versions for a little while. However, there are nice features in R 4 that I would like to use, so we will be requiring R 4 in the near future.
Andromeda 0.4.0 has been released. Most important is a bugfix when using a tilde in file paths. Additionally, this version introduces functions for creating indices to improve performance.
Cyclops 3.1.0 has been released to CRAN, with two important updates: First, some bugfixes for likelihood profiling, which we’ll use for combining effect size estimates across the OHDSI network (especially important when there are low or zero counts). Second, adding support for competing risk analyses, which will be integrated into CohortMethod.
EvidenceSynthesis 0.1.0 has been released. This introduces a new approach to combining evidence on effect sizes across the OHDSI network, without sharing patient-level data (by sharing non-normal approximations of the per-site likelihood functions).
Eunomia 1.0.1 has been released. The only real change is that Eunomia is now in CRAN, which will allow us to move other HADES packages into CRAN, which in the end should make installing the HADES packages a lot easier.
EvidenceSynthesis 0.2.1 has been released. This release primarily addresses an issue in the CRAN testing infrastructure.
Hydra 0.1.1 has been released. This just contains a single patch fixing a problem when hydrating packages while specifying a new package name. It is recommended to use Hydra to generate study packages based on the JSON specifications created in ATLAS. (The Hydra version in ATLAS is not up-to-date, so packages generated by ATLAS itself will not use the latest and greatest of HADES).
