Dear DSpace Community:

On behalf of the DSpace developers, I would like to formally announce
that DSpace 5.2 is now available. DSpace 5.2 is a bug-fix release and
contains no new features.

DSpace 5.2 can be downloaded immediately at either of the following

* SourceForge: https://sourceforge.net/projects/dspace/files/
* GitHub: https://github.com/DSpace/DSpace/ (see the "dspace-5.2" tag)

In addition, you are welcome to try out DSpace 5.2 on
http://demo.dspace.org/ and continue to provide any early feedback you
may have.

== Fixed in 5.2 ==

* Solr statistics upgrade fixes:
- Resolve issues where statistics index was not being properly upgraded.
DS-2486, DS-2487, DS-2489
- Failure when sharding the Solr statistics index. DS-2212

* OAI fixes:
- Handle dates correctly in resumption tokens, so that harvesting captures
the full specified range. DS-2546, DS-2582
- List all authors in METS formatted metadata. DS-2474
- Change the declared OAI deletion mode to "transient", which corresponds
to what DSpace actually does. DS-2491
- Restore the ability to create additional Filters for OAI-PMH interface.

* REST API fixes:
- wrong SQL in REST /items/find-by-metadata-field. DS-2501
- Listing collections would fail when using Oracle DB. DS-2508
- Correctly apply bitstream policies. DS-2511

* Other notable fixes:
- "dspace update-handle-prefix" failed when using Oracle DB. DS-2218
- Do not index items that are still in a submitter's workspace. DS-2403
- Remember the context (community, collection) during browsing. DS-2482
- Better handle upload of file with a semicolon in its name. DS-2513
- EZID DOI minting properly sets the URI of the identified item. DS-2518
- Update of the list of robots recognized by DSpace. DS-2531

== 5.2 Acknowledgments ==

The DSpace application would not exist without the hard work and
support of the community. Thank you to the many developers who have
worked very hard to deliver all the new features and
improvements. Also thanks to the users who provided input and feedback
on the development, as well those who participated in the

In particular, I'd like to single out Dr. Andrea Schweer
for her identification of various Solr statistics issues, and her
contributed fixes for those issues. Dr. Schweer also helped identify
and test many other fixes for this release, and 5.2 would not
be the same without her efforts.

Additionally I would like to thank Tim Donohue of DuraSpace for ensuring
that every DSpace release goes off without a hitch. Likewise, I would be
remiss if I did not mention the tireless efforts of everyone on the
DSpace 5 Release Team. I hope they don't mind me mentioning their names
one last time:

* Peter Dietz (Longsight)
* Hardy Pottinger (University of Missouri Library Systems)
* Ivan Masár
* Mark H. Wood (Indiana University)
* Robin Taylor (University of Edinburgh)
* Pascal-Nicolas Becker (Technische Universität Berlin)
* Andrea Schweer (Library Consortium of New Zealand)

A detailed listing of all known people/institutions who contributed
directly to DSpace 5.2 is available in the Release Notes. If you
contributed and were accidentally not listed, please let us know so
that we can correct it!

For DSpace 5.2, we had a total of 22 individuals contribute bug fixes.
A big thanks goes out to everyone who participated. We hope you'll
continue to be a valuable addition to the DSpace community for the
next release and beyond!
