***apologies for cross-posting***

Dear all,
I'm glad to announce the availability of the 5.5.0 version of DSpace-CRIS
build on top of DSpace JSPUI 5.5.

The release includes the security fix (medium level) already available in
DSpace JSPUI 5.5; it solves some configuration issues and bugs including
the ability to build and deploy the standard DSpace REST webapp (provided
by the Portuguese RCAAP Team); on top of it, this new release adds some
exciting new features:

- Global Statistics: to provide a global view over the repository usage,
visualization, download and deposit trends

- Facets for dynamic components: publications list, projects list and any
other dynamic component included in the researcher profiles or in other
CRIS entity details page (project, organization, etc.) can now provide
faceting capabilities

- Bibliographic export for publications: researcher's publication list can
be exported in several format by the profile owner and search results can
be exported by the repository administrators

- Incremental Authority from previous value: to suggest terms from values
already added into the system to keep metadata clean and to avoid
misspelling. Common use cases include keywords, publishers, etc.

- Direct access to the researcher profile using external identifiers: make
it easy to link external systems to your DSpace-CRIS installation without
the need to know the internal identifier. For instance you can address your
researcher profiles using their ORCID

A special thanks to Andrea Pascarelli, DSpace Committer, who put a lot of
effort on this new release and made it possible.

Best regards,
Andrea Bollini
