I am forwarding the message below on behalf of Chris Prom.  The content of the message pertains only to Charter Members of ArchivesSpace that will be migrating data from an Archon database.   -Brad Westbrook


To Charter Members using Archon:

At this time, the Archon migration tools are not ready for beta release.  While the tools have been tested successfully with several Archon databases and have fully migrated those database, the migration tools are currently undergoing final testing with large and complex datasets.  Beta releases of an Archon upgrade and a companion migration tool will be provided in the near future.

In the meantime, charter members who wish to assist with migration tool testing can download a release candidate version from https://githum.com/archonproject/archon/releases. This software should be installed as described in the instructions in the "Install Archon Update" section of the migration guidelines.

Please send an email to Brad Westbrook (brad.westbrook at lyrasis.org<mailto:brad.westbrook at lyrasis.org>) or to me (prom at illinois.edu<mailto:prom at illinois.edu>) if your repository installs the upgrade and intends to test the release candidate version of the migration tool.
