  • v2.8.1 Changes

    November 11, 2020

    πŸš€ Release notes for v2.8.1

    πŸš€ This release includes improvements to the spreadsheet importer, additional settable record type preferences, some bug fixes and small feature improvements, additional translations for the public interface and reports, and a number of infrastructure upgrades. Included among these are a number of performance, indexer, and small backend and staff interface improvements courtesy of work Hudson Molonglo developers James Bullen, Mark Triggs, and Payten Giles did for Queensland State Archives as part of a larger project.

    πŸš€ Some changes have been made to the spreadsheet importer in this release to extend its functionality and improve its performance, especially with large spreadsheets. Of particular note: there is now a validation option so that a user can do a test run with a file, providing the opportunity to clean up any errors outside ArchivesSpace before doing the actual import; the importer now accepts either Excel spreadsheets or CSV files that use the templates at https://github.com/archivesspace/archivesspace/tree/master/templates; and, while it is accessed from a resource record or resource component as before, the import now runs as a background job so that it can more easily handle large files and to make the log file downloadable and saved within ArchivesSpace. Also, a number of bugs that were introduced in the conversion of the spreadsheet from a plugin to ArchivesSpace have been fixed for this release.

    πŸ”§ Configurations and Migrations

    πŸš€ This release includes several modifications to the configuration defaults file:

    πŸ”§ Existing configurations removed due to #1980
    AppConfig[:bulk_import_rows] = 1000
    AppConfig[:bulk_import_size] = 256

    πŸ†• New configuration added to support ANW-921: Make citation tab configurable, use translations
    AppConfig[:pui_active_citation_tab_item] = true

    πŸ”§ Existing configuration removed due to #1960
    AppConfig[:pui_page_actions_bookmark] = true

    πŸ†• New configuration added to support ANW-1126: Add alt text to logo images in staff and PUI
    AppConfig[:pui_branding_img_alt_text] = 'ArchivesSpace logo'

    πŸš€ This release includes 3 new database migrations. The schema number for this release is 138.

    πŸ—„ API Deprecations

    The following API endpoints have been newly deprecated as part of this release. For the time being, they will work and you may continue to use them, however they will be removed from the core code of ArchivesSpace on or after 2021-10-30. For more information see the ArchivesSpace API documentation.

    Endpoint.get_or_post('/search/subjects')

    Endpoint.get('/repositories/:repo_id/resources/:id/tree')

    Endpoint.get('/repositories/:repo_id/digital_objects/:id/tree')

    Endpoint.get('/repositories/:repo_id/classifications/:id/tree')

    Other Considerations:

    πŸ“š Building on the enhanced functionality for setting preferences within the staff interface that was added in 2.8.0, this release candidate adds settable preferences for an additional 14 record types. These preferences control what what a user sees in the staff interface when browsing or filtering for a particular record type. If you have existing plugins to control this area, you may want to check if they are no longer needed due to these additions. This release candidate also includes updated search and browse plugin documentation to describe how to make columns appear conditionally based on request context.

  • v2.8.1-RC1 Changes

    November 02, 2020

    πŸš€ Release notes for v2.8.1-RC1

    πŸš€ This release candidate includes improvements to the spreadsheet importer, additional settable record type preferences, some bug fixes and small feature improvements, additional translations for the public interface and reports, and a number of infrastructure upgrades. Included within these are a number of performance, indexer, and small backend and staff interface improvements courtesy of work Hudson Molonglo developers James Bullen, Mark Triggs, and Payten Giles did for Queensland State Archives as part of a larger project.

    πŸš€ Some changes have been made to the spreadsheet importer in this release candidate to extend its functionality and improve its performance, especially with large spreadsheets. Of particular note: there is now a validation option so that a user can do a test run with a file, providing the opportunity to clean up any errors outside ArchivesSpace before doing the actual import; the importer now accepts either Excel spreadsheets or CSV files that use the templates at https://github.com/archivesspace/archivesspace/tree/master/templates; and, while it is accessed from a resource record or resource component as before, the import now runs as a background job so that it can more easily handle large files and to make the log file downloadable and saved within ArchivesSpace. Also, a number of bugs that were introduced in the conversion of the spreadsheet from a plugin to ArchivesSpace have been fixed for this release.

    πŸ”§ Configurations and Migrations

    πŸš€ This release includes several modifications to the configuration defaults file:

    πŸ”§ Existing configurations removed due to #1980
    AppConfig[:bulk_import_rows] = 1000
    AppConfig[:bulk_import_size] = 256

    πŸ†• New configuration added to support ANW-921: Make citation tab configurable, use translations
    AppConfig[:pui_active_citation_tab_item] = true

    πŸ”§ Existing configuration removed due to #1960
    AppConfig[:pui_page_actions_bookmark] = true

    πŸ†• New configuration added to support ANW-1126: Add alt text to logo images in staff and PUI
    AppConfig[:pui_branding_img_alt_text] = 'ArchivesSpace logo'

    βž• existing configuration for spreadsheet importer removed - add that info.

    πŸš€ This release includes 3 new database migrations. The schema number for this release is 138.

    πŸ—„ API Deprecations

    The following API endpoints have been newly deprecated as part of this release. For the time being, they will work and you may continue to use them, however they will be removed from the core code of ArchivesSpace on or after 2021-10-30. For more information see the ArchivesSpace API documentation.

    Endpoint.get_or_post('/search/subjects')

    Endpoint.get('/repositories/:repo_id/resources/:id/tree')

    Endpoint.get('/repositories/:repo_id/digital_objects/:id/tree')

    Endpoint.get('/repositories/:repo_id/classifications/:id/tree')

    Other Considerations:

    πŸ“š Building on the enhanced functionality for setting preferences within the staff interface that was added in 2.8.0, this release candidate adds settable preferences for an additional 14 record types. These preferences control what what a user sees in the staff interface when browsing or filtering for a particular record type. If you have existing plugins to control this area, you may want to check if they are no longer needed due to these additions. This release candidate also includes updated search and browse plugin documentation to describe how to make columns appear conditionally based on request context.

    July 16, 2020

    πŸš€ Release notes for v2.8.0

    πŸ“š This release contains program-led and community pull requests that provide feature enhancements, bug fixes, infrastructure improvements, and documentation updates. Some items of note include the ability to merge top containers, new browse, search, and sort preferences in the staff interface, some improvements to search and display in the public interface, and additional display and faceting options in the background jobs area, as well as bug fixes and accessibility improvements.

    ⬆️ Fans of the popular Harvard import plugin will be pleased to see that its functionality is now included in ArchivesSpace, courtesy of our work with the plugin’s original developer, Bobbi Fox. Please note that if you used the plugin previously you will need to disable it before starting up ArchivesSpace post-upgrade.

    βž• added July 30, 2020: Due the addition of background jobs to the index in this release, plugins that create background jobs will cause an indexing loop if they are disabled. While the vast majority of users will not encounter this, it is most likely to be encountered if users have run the language cleanup plugins released in conjunction with 2.6.0. The workaround for now is to reenable the plugin (or keep it enabled if the job is run in 2.8.0). The plugin itself should not be re-run. This issue will be corrected in a future release.

    May 15, 2019

    πŸš€ Release notes for v2.6.0-RC1

    πŸ“š This release candidate contains program-led and community pull requests that provide feature enhancements, bug fixes, infrastructure improvements and documentation updates. There are a number of small changes to the staff and public interfaces. There is also a significant revamp of how background jobs run, including a new reports page layout. This release candidate also has a new feature guided by a community-initiated and authored specification, the option to generate human-readable URLs for use in the public user interface. Learn more about human-readable URLs at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ycNuk86TD9jGHS5YzTw3tjQY3Kuln3F4fvR7kLlfigQ/edit?usp=sharing.

    πŸš€ This release candidate includes 12 new database migrations - 11 for human readable URLs (slugs) and 1 for enabling publication of revision statements. The schema number for this release is 120.

    πŸš€ A complete re-index is required for this release.
