Version 1.4.2 (2018-09-20)
==========================

General
-------

* "OrthancPeers" configuration option now allows to specify HTTP headers
* New main DICOM tag: "ImageOrientationPatient" at the instance level
* New configuration options:
  - "HttpVerbose" to debug outgoing HTTP connections
  - "OverwriteInstances" to choose how duplicate SOPInstanceUID are handled

Orthanc Explorer
----------------

* Query/retrieve: Added button for "DX" modality

REST API
--------

* "/tools/reconstruct" to reconstruct the main DICOM tags, the JSON summary and
  the metadata of all the instances stored in Orthanc. This is a slow operation!

Plugins
-------

* New primitives to access Orthanc peers from plugins
* New events in change callbacks: "UpdatedPeers" and "UpdatedModalities"
* New primitives to handle jobs from plugins: "OrthancPluginSubmitJob()"
  and "OrthancPluginRegisterJobsUnserializer()"

Lua
---

* IncomingWorklistRequestFilter() to filter incoming C-FIND worklist queries

Maintenance
-----------

* Fix "/series/.../ordered-slices" in the presence of non-parallel slices
* Fix incoming DICOM C-Store filtering for JPEG-LS transfer syntaxes
* Fix OrthancPluginHttpClient() to return the HTTP status on errors
* Fix HTTPS requests to sites using a certificate encrypted with ECDSA
* Fix handling of incoming C-FIND queries containing Generic Group Length (*, 0x0000)
* Fix issue 54 (quoting multipart answers), for OsiriX compatibility through DICOMweb
* Fix issue 98 (DCMTK configuration fails with GCC 6.4.0 on Alpine)
* Fix issue 99 (PamWriter test segfaults on alpine linux with gcc 6.4.0)


Version 1.4.1 (2018-07-17)
==========================

* Fix deadlock in Lua scripting
* Simplification to the "DatabaseWrapper" class


Version 1.4.0 (2018-07-13)
==========================

General
-------

* New advanced job engine
* New configuration options:
  - "ConcurrentJobs": Max number of jobs that are simultaneously running
  - "SynchronousCMove": Whether to run DICOM C-Move operations synchronously
  - "JobsHistorySize": Max number of completed jobs that are kept in memory
* New metadata automatically computed at the instance level: 
  "RemoteIp", "CalledAet" and "HttpUsername"

Orthanc Explorer
----------------

* New screen listing all the available studies

REST API
--------

* "/jobs/..." to manage the jobs from the REST API
* New option "?short" to list DICOM tags using their hexadecimal ID in:

  - "/{patients|studies|series}/.../shared-tags?short"
  - "/{patients|studies|series|instances}/.../module?short"
  - "/studies/.../module-patient?short"
* "/instances/.../tags" URI was returning only the first value of
  DicomTags containing multiple numerical value.  It now returns all
  values in a string separated by \\ (i.e.: "1\\2\\3").  Note that,
  for data already in Orthanc, you'll need to reconstruct the data by
  sending a POST request to the ".../reconstruct" URI.  This change
  triggered an update of ORTHANC_API_VERSION from 1.0 to 1.1
* "/instances/.../frame/../image-uint8 and friends now accepts a 
  "image/pam" MIME type to retrieve images in PAM format
