This release completed full regression QA on Windows XP, Windows 7, and Mac OSX with Chrome and Firefox 3.6 and 4 Browsers. The Internet Explorer 8 Browser is not supported in this release, although Internet Explorer 9 performs as expected. A patch is currently being developed and will be released in the near future. This release is an excellent candidate for installation as of July 12, 2011.
The CollectionSpace team is pleased to announce the release of CollectionSpace 1.8, which successfully completed full QA testing and is now available for download. This new release builds on CollectionSpace 1.3 by adding support for media handling, hierarchical vocabularies, the storage location authority, delete, import and export, many critical bugs, and full regression QA testing. Significant changes under the hood include improvements to performance, increased support for localization, simplification of configuration, and upgrade of the core platform to use PostgreSQL.
Initial development work in support of batch processing was started. Development efforts also included increased support for multi-tenancy, or the means by which a single CollectionSpace instance can support disparate tenants. This work is foundational to supporting CollectionSpace in a hosted environment.
