What's New in Version 1.3

The latest release introduces a number of major enhancements and usability improvements. The validation engine has been upgraded to support split datasets. The Excel report has been revised to improve readability. For example the issues summary tab is now grouped by domain, while terminology issues are collapsed into instances of distinct terms thus significantly reducing the size of the details tab. Also, the process of enabling MedDRA validation has been simplified. Please refer to Configuring OpenCDISC Validator for MedDRA guide for more information.

For a complete listing of enhancements and bug fixes please refer to the changelog.

SEND, SDTM Amendment 1, and other Validation Rule Updates

We are also happy to announce support for SEND 3.0 and SDTM 3.1.2 Amendment 1 standards. Now is your chance to test drive your data against these checks. Please post your questions/comments on the forum. We are looking forward to your feedback.

In addition, we have released updates to validation rules for SDTM 3.1.2, SDTM 3.1.1, ADaM 1.0, and Define.xml 1.0 standards. The most notable enhancements are:
