NOTE! THIS IS AN ARCHIVED ROADMAP AS OF SEPTEMBER 2018! See here for the current roadmap.


Release 2018.2



  • Optimized performance both when rendering and interacting with an analysis
  • Optimized performance for the map visualization
  • New action, Reload Data Mart, which can be attached to tiles and visualization
  • Improved user experience in the analysis designer
  • Definition of max and min selection cardinality for a data source (e.g. a time period has to be selected and not more than one time period can be selected)
  • Analysis themes are replaced by web themes which are shared by all web-based components. Web themes are defined in Genus Studio, and you can assign a default theme both for the app model and for each data set. Existing analysis themes will be converted to web themes when you upgrade to this release.



New effect: Run a Search. Runs a search attached to an object in an object class



New drop down control in desktop form with the ability to dynamically add items by running a task when the entered value is changed  (e.g. data from a REST service response).


App Model Configuration

Access to general settings in Genus Studio moved from the toolbar to separate entries in the directory explorer:

  • Settings: Settings for the app model
  • Data/Data Sets: Settings for data sets


The UI has been simplified to a single page layout to improve usability. Genus Configuration will be discontinued in a later release, and this is a preliminary step for moving the configuration of the app model to Genus Studio.



Trusted users replaced by app model admin rights. Users are no longer trusted on the app server, but granted app model admin rights in Genus Studio.


Time schedule


The release stage plan for Release 2018.2 is:

  • Alpha version at June 18th
  • Beta version at August 6th
  • Release Candidate at August 20th
  • Release at September 10th
