The ArchivesSpace team is happy to release version 1.4.1.
 
This release includes fixes for three bugs found in release 1.4.0:  AR-1332, AR-1341, and AR-1342.  Since AR-1341 is potentially a destructive bug, we recommend everybody that has installed v1.4.0 upgrade immediately to v1.4.1 and that others upgrade directly to v1.4.1.  
 
Please see the technical documentation for information on how to upgrade your ArchivesSpace installs. Note:  this release includes a file with a long name that might impede unzipping the release in certain directories on Windows machines.  Windows users should unzip the file in C:/ or ignore the file, which is not essential to the release.
 
Thanks to the users who reported these bugs and tested the solutions for them. Their efforts were crucial to our ability to get this maintenance release out quickly.
 
Please let us know if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.

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.
