Subject: [Dspace-tech] ANNOUNCEMENT: DSpace 1.6.1 is available now!


Today we'd like to announce the official release of DSpace 1.6.1!

DSpace 1.6.1 can be downloaded immediately at either of the following locations:

* SourceForge: https://sourceforge.net/projects/dspace/files/
* SVN: http://scm.dspace.org/svn/repo/dspace/tags/dspace-1.6.1/

DSpace 1.6.1 is primarily a bug-fix release, which means it does not
introduce any new features but improves existing features and fixes
bugs discovered in earlier versions of DSpace.
This is also the first [minor] version of DSpace to use a
"time-driven" approach to release, rather than a "feature-driven"
approach: we set a deadline and worked towards releasing on that date,
instead of releasing when a certain number of issues were resolved.
DSpace 1.7 will be the first major time-driven release.

* Fixed issues *

42 issues were fixed in DSpace 1.6.1. The full list can be reviewed here:

thanks also go out to those who reported bugs, helped test patches and
gave their feedback to developers. Last but not least, thanks to
Jeffrey Trimble for his continued work as the DSpace "documentation
gardener", ensuring that all our documentation is updated and
