The ArchivesSpace team is pleased to announce a release candidate, v3.1.0-RC1. You can download it at or test it out without downloading at  (username admin /password admin).

This release includes a number of accessibility improvements, particularly to the public interface. Many of these were identified in an accessibility audit conducted by Deque across the open source applications that make their homes at LYRASIS, which include DSpace, CollectionSpace, and ArchivesSpace. It also includes specific bug fixes and small feature improvements prioritized by the Development Prioritization sub-team.

A particular thanks to our Testing sub-team for their work testing individual JIRAs and doing regression testing across the application.

Please try this release candidate out and let us know at by September 14 if you notice any problems with the specific areas addressed in this release, or if anything that was working before no longer is. Pending the results of this testing, we will aim to release the production version of 3.1.0 shortly afterwards.

This is the spring/summer 2021 release from the roadmap. Items that were projected for this release that did not make it in have been shifted to future releases.
