Release history

Release 1.14.1

Release Date: 2012-08-01

ADDIS 1.14.1 fixes several bugs and usability problems:

  • Study activities could not be edited for studies imported from
  • It was possible to remove epochs that had measurements associated with them, leading to a corrupt database
  • Convergence plots did not correctly take into account the thinning factor

Release 1.14

Release Date: 2012-06-11

We are happy to announce the release of ADDIS (Aggregate Data Drug Information System) version 1.14. This release focuses on the saving of network meta-analysis results between sessions. New features include:

  • Network meta-analysis result summaries can be saved in the ADDIS data file (includes relative effects, rank probabilities, variance parameters, inconsistency factors, node-split results, and convergence diagnostics).
  • The network meta-analysis simulation can be extended if convergence is not yet satisfactory.
  • The network meta-analysis simulation can be re-run if necessary, e.g. to verify saved results or to obtain density and convergence plots.
  • New progress visualization for network meta-analysis.
  • Updated example data to include results of all network meta-analyses.
  • Automatically "thin" network meta-analysis samples to reduce memory usage.
  • Additional validation of the "add activities" step in the study wizard.
  • Various usability improvements and bugfixes.

Running ADDIS

Open the addis-1.14.1-installer.jar file and follow the installation instructions. Now you can run ADDIS by double-clicking the shortcut created on your desktop and/or start menu. When you do this, you should see the ADDIS welcome screen, where you can choose to load an example data set, load a file, or create a new data set. If you've never used ADDIS, we recommend that you take a look at the example data set.

If double-clicking the JAR file did not launch ADDIS, you are most likely lacking the Java run-time environment. You can get this from
