Tonight we pushed AidData version 1.1 out the door! Most of the improvements in this release are behind the scenes, but we're very excited about them:
- IMPROVEMENT: Our new service AidData Tools provides several easy ways to query and access the AidData dataset from outside the website, including a developer API, an embeddable widget, and extended RSS features.
- IMPROVEMENT: Added a listing of services AidData offers.
- IMPROVEMENT: We've implemented a more advanced search feature which behaves much more intuitively.
- IMPROVEMENT: AidData is now OpenSearch compatible, allowing other search engines and data aggregators to easily index and search AidData
- IMPROVEMENT: Extended our Facebook and social networking integration, which will allow you to easily share AidData projects and pages with your friends.
- IMPROVEMENT: Added links on the project pages to the donor project documents (in .PDF form) for projects which were reported by the donor in an annual report.
- IMPROVEMENT: Search result export links are now good for 14 days, up from 24 hours.
- IMPROVEMENT: Added "Europe, Oceania, and Other" quick-selection checkboxes on the recipient tabs of the Search.
- FIXED: Some amounts were appearing on project page but not in search results.
As always, let us know if you have any questions or suggestions for how to improve AidData -- we're always on the lookout for ideas for new features and improvements! And stay tuned, our next big update will have all sorts of visible improvements, including country and sector dashboards!
