The ArchivesSpace team is pleased to announce a release candidate, v2.3.0-RC1. You can download it at https://github.com/archivesspace/archivesspace/releases/tag/v2.3.0-RC1 or test it out without downloading at http://test.archivesspace.org (username admin /password admin).

This release candidate contains a number of community pull requests along with a few bug fixes, some reports updates, and the start of the enhancement of the Agents Module (JIRA with the full specification available at https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/browse/AR-1779). The most notable bug fixes are:

  *   repairing component scrambling that can happen when exporting EAD after re-ordering tree nodes
  *   enabling the use of a proxy prefix
  *   correcting digital object linking problems in the public interface

The first work on the enhanced Agents Module is included in this release, namely a new feature that allows systems administrators and repository managers to add fields to the required field list in the Agents Record for all four types of agents. Additional agents specification work will be included in upcoming releases.

Thanks to community members Mark Cooper, Chris Fitzpatrick, Bobbi Fox, and Blake Carver for their contributions. We are also very appreciative of the work of our Development Prioritization subteam, Testing subteam, and Core Committers Group in helping prioritize, test, and do code review for issues for this release.

Please test this release candidate as you are able over the next few days and report any issues you find to me at christine.dibella at lyrasis.org<mailto:christine.dibella at lyrasis.org>. Barring significant issues, we hope to make the production release available sometime next week.
