The ArchivesSpace program team is pleased to announce the availability of v2.1.1. This minor release contains a couple dozen small bug fixes and enhancements, including improvements to the PUI and OAI-PMH implementations in v2.1.0. Most notably, it addresses a bug that caused initial indexing to take significantly longer than was desirable, particularly for large databases. Many thanks to the Hudson Molonglo team – James Bullen, Payten Giles, and Mark Triggs – for their work on these issues. This release was also improved by a community pull request from Chris Fitzpatrick.
You can download this release at https://github.com/archivesspace/archivesspace/releases/tag/v2.1.1. The full list of bug fixes and improvements is included in the release notes.
Information on upgrading to a new version of ArchivesSpace is available at http://archivesspace.github.io/archivesspace/user/upgrading-to-a-new-release-of-archivesspace/. If you have not already upgraded to 2.1.0, we would recommend going directly to 2.1.1, though you should read the considerations for upgrading to 2.1.0 at https://github.com/archivesspace/archivesspace/blob/master/UPGRADING_2.1.0.md first.
Thanks to our Development Prioritization subteam for prioritizing the bug fixes to be addressed, the Testing subteam for their quick work in putting the delivered bug fixes through their paces, and to all the individual members who identified these issues and made suggestions for improvements.
