[<- Back to DPR Home](/data_processing) | [ DPR v1.4.0 Release Notes](/dpr_updates_1_4_0) ### Release 1.5.0 1. Ability to view data output without needing to dump to a file. DPR now opens up a browser-based UI which allows users to look at the data results for each process. You can click on the specific process on the left sidebar and it will bring up the data. ``` dpr> run MyProcess dpr> view <- this will launch a new browser tab ``` 2. Data profiling - the data is profiled as part of running a process and this is now available for viewing on the UI. As shown above, start by invoking the UI by entering `view` into the console. Once the browser tab is open, click on the specific process which will bring up the data for that process. Then click the `Profile` tab on top to view the data profile. Read more about it at [Data Profiling](/data_profiling). 3. Project history and switching without needing to exit - DPR now keeps a history of project spaces that have been used with DPR. This allows for easy switching when necessary. Also, when starting up, if the directory from where DPR was started doesn't contain a config file, you will be asked to select which DPR project you want to work on. Initial project selection: ``` Select the number from the list of known projects or specify your own directory 1) c:\users\dan\dpr\myfirstproject 2) c:\users\dan\loganalysis ? ``` Changing projects: ``` dpr> chgproject Select the number from the list of known projects or specify your own directory 1) c:\users\dan\dpr\myfirstproject 2) c:\users\dan\loganalysis ? ``` 4. Ability to specify steps to be ignored. Sometimes, the output step or a filter step needs to be removed from the processing and previously you would need to remove it explicityl in the config file. Now you can specify an ignore in the definition of the step as below. ``` "steps: [ { "type": "outputToExcel", "ignore": true, ... } ] ``` 5. `CRITICAL` Java 10 is now required to run DPR. Please ensure that your JAVA_HOME points to Java 10.
