2023-03-22 - Rev 1.9.2 - Embed AIIC inventory for local searching. This repairs the AICIS website "improvement" whereby they prevented generated URLs from finding a particular entry by CAS number. See trac.chemintro.com/ticket/53
2023-02-10 - Rev 1.9.1 - Flavour and fragrance blend categorisation - including improving AICIS guidance. See trac.chemintro.com/ticket/52
2023-02-01 - Rev 1.9.0 - Chemical blends prompted by flavour/fragrance blends but essentially a very useful mechanism for adding a pre-defined set (blend) of existing chemicals to a Product. See trac.chemintro.com/ticket/46
2023-01-31 - Rev 1.8.2 - Products can now be branded. Brands are established on the Company page by a user in the Manager role. Includes uploading a logo image and setting display dimensions. The image also has a title used for mouse rollover text. That appears instead if no image is uploaded. See trac.chemintro.com/ticket/47
2023-01-22 - Rev 1.8.1 - The IFRA Transparency List useful link now brings up the specific (pdf) page for the ingredient CAS number if found - otherwise the entire table as per #44. See trac.chemintro.com/ticket/45
2023-01-19 - Rev 1.8.0 - Added a reference table of IFRA Transparency List permitted cosmetic ingredients available via automatic useful links. See trac.chemintro.com/ticket/44
2022-12-29 - Rev 1.7.0 - Deployed htmx on the home page for logged-in members of the Author group so they can search their chemicals. This is experimental for now. See trac.chemintro.com/ticket/43
2022-12-19 - Rev 1.6.0 - Repaired the is_inorganic() method which had been returning True if there was no molecular formula. It now correctly returns None (equivalent to False). See trac.chemintro.com/ticket/42
2022-12-13 - Rev 1.5.0 - New cosmetic introductions feature. Many restrictions and prohibitions exist for cosmetic ingredients. If prohibited, Chemintro will not permit cosmetic use. If restricted, a note requiring acknowledgement is automatically created. See trac.chemintro.com/ticket/40
2022-12-09 - Rev 1.4.0 - New Reported <= 10kg category - AICIS has listened to introducers and changed the Rules to allow a Reported category for small quantities up to 10kg per annum. The significance is that you no longer need to nail down the proof (studies and test reports) from your secretive overseas supplier! See trac.chemintro.com/ticket/29
2022-10-11 - Rev 1.3.0 - Significant new feature - Memorandum of Understanding which discloses real-world consequences regarding specific chemical information of interest to AICIS if not divulged within the 40 day deadline. See trac.chemintro.com/ticket/25
2022-09-15 - Changed the "Salt and/or ester parent hazards" system to ensure users do not miss what is happening. See trac.chemintro.com/ticket/24
2022-09-07 - Enhanced the Summary report to include source information upon which the categorisation is based. This gets updated for all introductions listed in open reports when they are saved. A closed report is one with the Submitted field set to 'Yes'. See trac.chemintro.com/ticket/22
2022-08-11 - Enhanced the OECD tests with a clickable link to each test guideline and populated a new field Equivalent tests from the AICIS Guidelines taking Chemintro to revision 1.1. See trac.chemintro.com/ticket/15
2022-07-28 - Document management for AICIS assessments is now deployed. Essentially Chemintro creates a series of notes for all "Required" documentation for an assessment. As documentation is nailed, the note gets converted to a link and a user can see exactly what remains to be done while being also able to bring up the documentation on demand. One can choose to create separate series of notes for "If available" documentation. "Required" and "If available" vary depending on categorisation of the chemical. See trac.chemintro.com/ticket/11
2022-07-07 - Assessment IUCLID6 checklists deployed. Depending on risk focus, AICIS either Requires particular evidence supporting claims or proving hazards do not exist OR wants to see them If available. Chemintro now constructs those two checklists automatically. See trac.chemintro.com/ticket/6
2022-06-15 - Auto-delete irrelevant Useful links to AICIS checklists and record keeping obligations when user adjustments cause the categorisation to change. Similarly, irrelevant Notes are deleted - except if they have been edited, in which case the title gets "No longer relevant" appended.
2022-05-30 - Added 'Origin' and 'Info availability' mandatory fields to the landing pages initial chemical data entry screen.
2022-04-19 - Add tilde '~' prefix to "~Product containing <chemical>" so it sinks alphabetically. Auto-remove ~ prefix if the product gains any volume. This affects the Products page and Product selection drop-down lists'. It means we can create a 'spare' extra product which conveniently stays out of the way but can be easily found when needed.
