META-SHARE v3.0 stable release

Oct 10, 2012 at 10:02

Dear META-NET partners,

We are happy to announce the immediate availability of the next stable META-SHARE release in version 3.0. META-SHARE v3.0 contains major new features compared to the v2.1.x series:

  • fine-grained user access rights management
  • linking of META-SHARE nodes with automatic metadata synchronization
  • a new resource view
  • resource recommendation services

In addition, we have spent a considerable amount of time on improving the overall usability and on fixing many reported bugs. A big thank you to everybody who helped us test the v2.9-beta version: many fixes and smaller improvements have landed ever since.

The release again ships with a tool for easily migrating your existing v2.1.x or v2.9-beta installation data. For v3.0 we have changed the available licensing information in the metadata schema; for details on these changes, please see the attached file. We recommend all META-SHARE nodes to set up a v3.0 installation and migrate their v2.x installation data soon.

As usual, the META-SHARE Installation Manual (under misc/docs/ in the download bundle) contains all details on how to install and/or migrate to the new release. Any problems that may be encountered should be reported to the issue tracker, to the community support forum, or to the help desks. It is often worth checking if the issue tracker and/or the forum already cover your issue – maybe there is a solution or a workaround already.
