Announcement:  Release of ArchivesSpace 1.0
The ArchivesSpace project team is pleased to announce the release of ArchivesSpace 1.0.
ArchivesSpace 1.0 is open source software; the application and its source code are available on Github<https://github.com/archivesspace/archivesspace/releases/tag/v1.0.0>.  Build instructions and technical documentation<http://archivesspace.github.com/archivesspace/doc/> are also provided for the more technically inclined.  A full list of all enhancements and bug fixes is available in the software change log<https://github.com/archivesspace/archivesspace/wiki/Changelog>.
An ArchivesSpace 1.0 sandbox is available for users wanting to test the application before implementing it locally.  The staff interface is at http://sandbox.archivesspace.org/, while the public interface is at http://sandbox.archivesspace.org:8081/
Tools for migrating data from an Archon or Archivists' Toolkit instance to an ArchivesSpace instance will be released in October, first to ArchivesSpace Charter members who will have exclusive access to the tools for the first ninety days after their release, followed by ArchivesSpace members who will have exclusive access for a second ninety-day period.  The migration tools will be made available to the general user community 180 days after their release.  In the meantime, we have posted guidelines to help users prepare for migrating their Archon or Archivists' Toolkit data [http://www.archivesspace.org/documents/preparing-data-for-migration-to-archivesspace-1-0/].
Please direct questions about the release and reports of bugs using the Feedback option provided in the ArchivesSpace application interface.
