Hi MUSTANG users-

Feature fixes and tests have been conducted for an important update to MUSTANG, specifically the web services that you use when getting access to the tabular (non-PSD) metrics. We are ready to put this into production tomorrow morning, October 25th, at 10 AM PDT. Problems are not anticipated with the switchover, and it may be entirely transparent to users, but I want to make sure everyone has a heads up just in case there is some disruption in service.

What you can expect in this new version should be to your liking. A summary of what is offered is the following:

Release version 1.2.0 (2016-10-25)

reworked code base to improve efficiencies
support for glob-style wildcards in all SNCL query terms
support for virtual network queries
support for ‘--’ location code queries
support for comma-separated query terms
support for ‘start’ and ‘end’ date-time terms
support for nodata term to send user specified HTTP code when no metrics are found
Improvements to helpful error message framework
LDDATE field is truncated to seconds instead of milli/microseconds
Allow partial matches for channel and location pairs found in certain metrics
Some metric values truncated to a specific precision
The on-line documentation for these features has been drafted for the 'measurements' service. The 'targets' and 'metrics' services will have their documents updated as well. Issues with the URL builder interface will be addressed as needed.

Thank you for your patience as we get this new install into production.
