We are excited to announce the release of Simplifier 31.4, packed with technical improvements smaller features to enhance your experience. Here’s a closer look at what’s new in this release:

Quality Control Enhancements

We've introduced new rules and filters to improve quality control:

  • unique-filename: Checks for duplicate files in package builds.
  • assert: Can now check for any issue or issues of specified severity (warning, error, or info).
  • New predicates: exists, min, max, count, and cardinality.
  • manifest: Evaluates the correctness of package.json.
  • dependency: Provides a full analysis of your dependency closure, including upgrade suggestions.

Here is an example of the new rules for checking the package manifest and package dependencies, as part of the minimal validation rules:

Dependency checking with Quality Control

We've also made all rulesets used by Simplifier publicly visible in our Assets project, like these minimal rules. (Note that it is not yet guaranteed that Forge and Firely Terminal use the exact same version of the rules.)

Rendering Improvements

  • Markdown Rendering: Now available in all rendering components.
  • Enhanced rendering of pattern elements: When a pattern was set on a parent element, child elements were mistakenly rendered as being fixed instead of being affected by a pattern.

Other Enhancements

  • YamlGen: Now generates random content for backbone elements.
  • FQL: Can now filter on categories "Profile", "Example", "Extension".
  • FQL syntax update: Correctly parses the FhirPath expression (<expression>).not().
  • Numerous textual improvements and fixes.
  • Guides markdown frontmatter (YAML) IntelliSense: Typing canonical: will trigger autocomplete for the canonical URLs in scope.
  • Improved package publication, allowing users to upload/publish packages directly through the Simplifier API.

Versioning Update

Starting from the next release, our versioning will follow the current year followed by the release number. The next release will be 2024.5.

Stay tuned for more updates and improvements in the upcoming releases. Thank you for being a valued user of Simplifier!

See the Simplifier release notes in the Docs for the full story.
