This minor release has some bug fixes, including a fix for the issue with resource components being exported in EAD in a different order from how they appear in the staff interface (, as well as improvements to overall performance. It features work from our development partner, Hudson Molonglo (HM), as well as code contributions from community members Mark Cooper, Steve Majewski, Chris Fitzpatrick, Jason Loeffler, and Michael Bond. Thanks to all who contributed, participated in testing and provided the feedback that led to these improvements!

  • Please see the release page for a listing of all the new features and bug fixes included in this release.

Big thanks as always to Mark Cooper, Blake Carver, and the other staff of LYRASIS’ Digital Technology Services for their testing and technical support. We’re also pleased to celebrate the first regular release managed by ArchivesSpace’s new Tech Lead, Laney McGlohon.

Please let us know if you have questions or encounter problems executing the upgrade. The next major release of ArchivesSpace, which will include a beta of the new public interface, is expected to be available near the end of March.
