ADDIS v1.2.1 is a bugfix release. There was an issue with the newly introduced single-study benefit-risk analysis that prevented any domain object from being deleted or edited. This has been fixed.

We are happy to announce the release of ADDIS (Aggregate Data Drug Information System) version 1.2. We deviate from our normal 3-monthly schedule to introduce an important feature: benefit-risk analysis based on a single study.
In single-study benefit-risk models, measurements are based on a Beta approximation of the binomial success probability (dichotomous outcomes) or on a Normal approximation of a continuous outcome. The single-study models are created using the same benefit-risk wizard that is used to construct benefit-risk models based on (network) meta-analyses. The advantage of single-study benefit-risk models is that all measurements are absolute, and thus that the measurement scales are easily interpreted. It is also not necessary to run any sub-analyses to inform the benefit-risk model. However, the SMAA simulation itself is a lot slower when Beta distributions are used.
This release also fixes an annoying bug that surfaced on Windows: switching the preferences from MISSING to ORDINAL didn't always work.

Extract the addis-1.2.1.zip ZIP archive to a local directory. Then double-click the 'addis-1.2.1.jar' file. Now 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 java.com.
