Although stopping short of the full LDC request, WTO members reached consensus on a 13-year extension of the current transition period, which expired on 1 July 2021.

DSpace 7 Press Release

DSpace news - ორშ, 02/08/2021 - 18:14

Deutsch    Español    Français      Italiano      Português    

Atlanta, GA, 02 August 2021 – The long awaited and much anticipated DSpace 7.0 is now available. This release introduces a brand new (Angular) UI which brings together the best of both the JSPUI and XMLUI worlds. All the features you’ve come to expect from DSpace are re-imagined and re-implemented. This new UI is also backed by a brand new REST API, which opens all data and features to the web, allowing DSpace to integrate or interact with external systems/services like never before. This release brings the entire user community under a single UI, allowing us to move more quickly together.

“DSpace 7.0, the largest release in our history with over 1 million lines of DSpace code changed, is larger than the last 4 major releases combined. Despite a global pandemic, we sped up our development, releasing a total of 5 Beta releases, culminating in a community Testathon. This release is the result of the dedication, determination and commitment of our community who continuously fuel the DSpace program.” Kristi Park, DSpace Governance Chair and Texas Digital Library Executive Director.

DSpace 7.0 was developed collaboratively by over 60 community developers, led by LYRASIS, Atmire and 4Science. Financial support was generously provided by over 25 institutions around the world. For a full list of contributors, please see the Release Notes. If you’d like to contribute to the next 7.x release, consider joining a future DSpace 7 Working Group meeting.

DSpace 7.0 Features

The DSpace 7.0 release includes the following features:

  • A new User Interface based on Angular (to replace XMLUI and JSPUI). The goal of the new UI is to implement all major features of both XMLUI and JSPUI in a single, modern UI.
  • A new fully-fledged REST API (using modern REST best practices). The goal of the new REST API is to implement a modern, secure, independent and scalable architecture.
  • Redesigned submissions and workflows featuring a one page submission process with a drag-and-drop interface and newly redesigned MyDSpace.
  • A new Configurable Entities object model, which allows for the creation of new “typed” Items, and storing relationships between Items. This feature allows for tighter integration with external identifier systems (e.g. ORCID), current research information systems (CRIS), journal publishing systems, etc.

DSpace 7.0 early technical documentation is available.

Because of the complexity of merging features of two UIs (XMLUI and JSPUI) into one, and the desire to make 7.0 available as soon as possible, the release contains the highest priority features (those deemed most widely used). Some features have been delayed for a later 7.x release. See DSpace 7 Release Goals for more information.

Be the first in your country to upgrade! Tell us what made you choose DSpace 7.0 and which feature(s) prompted the upgrade.

Fedora Migration Paths and Tools Project Update: July 2021

DSpace news - ოთხ, 28/07/2021 - 23:08

This is the latest in a series of monthly updates on the Fedora Migration Paths and Tools project – please see the previous post for a summary of the work completed up to that point. This project has been generously funded by the IMLS.

We completed some final performance tests and optimizations for the University of Virginia pilot. Both the migration to their AWS server and the Fedora 6.0 indexing operation were much slower than anticipated, so the project team tested a number of optimizations, including:

  1. Adding more processing threads
  2. Increasing the size of the server instance 
  3. Using a separate and larger database server 
  4. Using locally attached flash storage

Fortunately, these improvements made a big difference; for example, ingest speed was increased from 6.8 resources per second to 45.6 resources per second. In general, this means that institutions with specific performance targets can use a combination of parallel processing and increased computational resources. Feedback from this pilot has been incorporated into the migration guide, updates to the migration-utils to improve performance, updates to the aws-deployer tool to provide additional options, and improvements to the migration-validator to handle errors.

The Whitman College team has begun their production migration using Islandora Workbench. Initial benchmarking has shown that running Workbench from the production server rather than locally on a laptop achieves much better performance, so this is the recommended approach. The team is working collection-by-collection using CSV files and a tracking spreadsheet to keep track of each collection as it is ingested and ready to be tested. They have also developed a Quality Control checklist to make sure everything is working as intended – we anticipate doing detailed checks on the first few collections and spot checks for subsequent collections.

As we near the end of the pilot project phase of the grant work we are focused on documentation for the migration toolkit. We plan to complete a draft of this documentation over the summer, after which this draft will be shared with the broader community for feedback. We will organize meetings in the Fall to provide opportunities for community members to provide additional feedback on the toolkit and make suggestions for improvements.
