  • Last week:
    • Released LUCI 2.14.13:
      • Adds diagnostics of dropped Journalizer connections to diagnose IT 8529.
      • Fixes a number of exceptions and useless debug messages if the RTD is interacted with while Aladin is not running.
    • For Shark-NIR, investigated how to set the LUCI PROPID FITS header entry when using the Engineering GUIs. Found that the easiest way was to run a single-image script with the PROPID set before starting engineering; the PROPID should be preserved.
    • Updated the LUCI GUI Plan of Intent.
      • Added three items to the end of the document that should be addressed whether or not the browser-based GUIs move forward.
    • Continued investigating Aladin internal deadlocks, which could cause IT 8355.
    • Received responses from the Aladin developers on some of my bug reports, and began testing their suggested fixes.
      • During that testing, found that the Observer RTDs were starting with different Java options than the RTDs in my simulator. Made all the LUCI startup scripts identical to avoid this in the future.
  • This week:
    • Work on Observer Scheduler GUI (IT 8571, 8529).
    • Incorporate suggested Aladin fixes into RTD and Observer GUIs.
