Summary of Work Completed

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.

Caching may now be enabled to improve performance, instructions may be found here: Configuring Caching in CollectionSpace

Please see our Documentation for more information about how to use these features.
