The ArchivesSpace team is happy to release version 1.4.0.
This release includes solutions to the rendering (AR-1311) and re-ordering (AR-1183) performance problems that many users reported. These solutions were distributed in two release candidates in late August, and received approval from several users.
This release also includes several new features: an enhanced interface to the LCNAF plugin that makes it easier to scan and identify authority records for import; ability to see how many times and where a controlled value term has been applied; ability to set a default order for notes in the resource and digital object modules; and the ability to record extent statements in the Rapid Date Entry template in the resource module.
Please see the technical documentation for information on how to upgrade your ArchivesSpace installs.
Please see the release page for a listing of all the new features and bug fixes included in this release.
Thanks to all the volunteers on the ArchivesSpace User Advisory and Technical Advisory Councils, who have contributed substantially to advancing the development of ArchivesSpace.
