Critical memory leak fixed!
Well, this week saw some important bug fixes, notably a critical memory leak in logging and deeplearning4j now working on Windows. See below for details.
Fixed memory leak in the logging framework: Java's logging facility doesn't garbage collected
Loggerinstances and slowly gobbles up memory. Reimplemented the functionality to avoid this issue. Thanks to Sam for uncovering that!
Fixed passing on of data for control actors CallableActorScreenshot and ClearCallableDisplay.
NewSpreadSheet now accepts an empty initial column list.
SpreadSheetInsertColumn and SpreadSheetInsertRow now ignore the position if the spreadsheet coming through is empty (they simply add a row).
adams-dl4j: Fixed the
java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: no jnind4j in java.library.pathexception on Windows - correct inclusion of native artifacts.
Data container reader/writer classes now state the supported file extensions and the default file extension under "additional information" in the help.
Spreadsheet reader/writer classes now state the supported file extensions and the default file extension under "additional information" in the help.
Added Open in file browser to directory panel of the Preview Browser.
adams-spreadsheet: The SpreadSheetFileViewer now allows the user to paste a spreadsheet from the system clipboard (gets prompted how to read in the data).
Added Copy ID(s) to popup menu of container lists.
Centralized shortening of strings in
Spectrum Explorer now allows reloading of spectral files, not just from database.
The adams.core.management.Launcher class now allows the collapse of the classpath when launching the actual process, i.e., instead of listing every single jar explicitly, only the directory with
/*appended is used. This dramatically reduces the length of the commandline string. Should also help with Windows' restriction of only allowing 260 characters in a classpath (Linux filesystems usually handle 4096 characters). The startup scripts,
run.bat, got updated accordingly.
AppendName, DirName and PrependDir can output paths with forward slashes now as well, when processing strings.
adams-dl4j: upgraded deeplearning4j/nd4j to 0.4.0 and canova to 0.0.0.17.
Added global switch for anti-aliasing (enable/disable), available from the Visualization menu.
Added preview handler to the Preview browser for basic file information: FileInfoHandler
MapToVariables transformer turns the key-value pairs into variables and associated values, useful when loading in YAML config files.
added EditDistance transformer for computing the edit distance between strings (supplied base and ones received).
added Stemmer transformer for performing word stemming, single words or arrays of words.
Have a good weekend!
