Changes in Babase 3.x

Babase 3.0

Babase 3.0 was released on August 1, 2012.

The following changes make Babase 3.0 incompatible with prior releases:

Non-numbered backward in-compatible changes

On August 30, 2012 the DSAMPLES.Hairlength column name was changed to Hairsamples. The datatype was changed from BOOLEAN to allow numeric values between 0 through 2, inclusive.

On January 5, 2017 the new columns DcauseNatureConfidence and DcauseAgentConfidence were added to BIOGRAPH. These are intended to clarify and replace the BIOGRAPH.Dcauseconfidence column. Backfilling the new columns is a lengthy procedure, so Dcauseconfidence was not removed until March 14, 2018.

On March 30, 2017, the DSAMPLES and DTCULTURES tables were removed, to allow for the addition of the DART_SAMPLES table (and associated support tables) and the DSAMPLES view. There should be some backward compatibility between the old DSAMPLES table and the new DSAMPLES view--care was taken to change as few column names as possible--but there are new columns in the DSAMPLES view, there will certainly also be incompatibility.
