                                           Neuroimaging

This is a high level and scarce summary of the changes between releases. We would recommend to consult log of the DataLad git repository for more details.

0.2.0 (Feb 09, 2019) – Am I compatible with you honey?

  • Make compatible with (and demand) pybids 0.7.{0,1}. 0.7.0 introduced change of terms: modality -> suffix, and type -> datatype, which would now require to either reaggregate all previous metadata or somehow fixup in-place existing metadata files. And for 0.7.1 workaround was added to not return suffix at least when participants.tsv was queried.
  • Make compatible with pydicom 1.0 in treatment of MultiValue
  • Refactorings:
    • tests:
      • use export_archive instead of plain tarfile.open
      • make compatible with recent (0.11.x) DataLad which now extract annex keys etc

0.1.5 (Sep 28, 2018) – BIDS robustness

  • Assorted improvements of the BIDS metadata extractor performance on datasets in the wild.

0.1.4 (Aug 02, 2018) – PyBIDS

  • Fixed compatibility with pybids 0.6.4 and now demand it as the minimal PyBIDS version

0.1 (Apr 28, 2018) – The Release

Major refactoring and deprecations

  • This is the first separate release of DataLad’s neuroimaging functionality as an extension module.
  • Metadata
    • BIDS metadata now uniformly refers to subjects and participants using the metadata key ‘subject’

Enhancements and new features

  • Extractors now report progress (with DataLad 0.10+)
  • BIDS participant metadata is now read via pybids

Fixes

  • Fix issue with unicode characters in BIDS metadata
  • DICOM metadata now also contains the ‘PatientName’ field that was previously excluded due to a too restrictive data type filter
