Ciao All,

I’m forwarding to you the announcement that was just been shared in the general list about the release of DSpace 7.0 Beta 3 (below).

Please share it with your own communities if you can.

I’m not sure you received my last message, so I’ll share again a few additional things:

  1.  If you know about an interesting project that could be part of the “Repositories at the time of Covid-19” webinar series, please let me know;
  2.  If you think that one of the 3 webinars already presented (here is the list<https://wiki.lyrasis.org/display/DSPACE/Videos+and+Webinars>) could be of interest for your specific community, let me know and we can replicate it;
  3.  I’d like to organize another call with you all for sharing updates. I was also thinking to invite Kathleen Shearer (Executive Dir of COAR – most of you if not all know her very well already) to talk about the COAR initiative related to Covid-19. I’ll send you all a Doodle Poll in the next days, just let me know if a chat with Kathleen is of your interest.

Stay safe!

(I’m experiencing some issues with the list. I’ve sent 3 emails in the past three weeks but I don’t think you received them…please let me know if you get this one…thanks!)

Dear DSpace Community,

The DSpace Leadership Group, the DSpace Committers and LYRASIS are proud to announce that DSpace 7.0 Beta 3 is now available for download and testing.

Beta 3 is the third scheduled Beta release provided for community feedback and to introduce the new features of the 7.0 platform. As a Beta release, we highly advise against running this version in production. Rather, we ask that you consider installing it in a test environment, try it out, and report back any issues or bugs you notice through GitHub (UI issues<https://github.com/DSpace/dspace-angular/issues>, Backend/API issues<https://github.com/DSpace/DSpace/issues>).

DSpace 7.0 Beta 3 is deployed for public testing on a dedicated demo site and it can be installed manually or via a Docker “quick install”.  Instructions are available at: Try out DSpace 7<https://wiki.lyrasis.org/display/DSPACE/Try+out+DSpace+7>.

Included in Beta 3

  *   Processes Admin UI (video<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vcsWkWQONkY>) allows Administrators to run backend scripts/processes while monitoring their progress & completion.
  *   Manage Account Profile allows logged in users to update their name, language or password.
  *   New User Registration (video<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C2k8vn1rWNE>) and password reset to the Login screen.
  *   Login As (Impersonate) another account allows Administrators to debug issues that a specific user is seeing, or do some work on behalf of that user.
  *   Manage Authorization Policies of an Item allows Administrators to directly change/update the access policies of an Item, its Bundles or Bitstreams.
  *   Manage Item Templates of a Collection allows Administrators to create/manage template metadata that all new Items will start with when submitted to that Collection.
  *   Administer Active Workflows (video<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CjH8VS2WDjE>) allows Administrators to see every submission that is currently in the workflow approval process.
  *   CC License step allows your users to select a Creative Commons License as part of their submission.
  *   Angular CLI compatibility was added to the User Interface. This allows developers to easily update the User Interface using standard Angular commandline tools.
