I had just installed RC-6 but hadn't had a chance to try it out:  my concerns was also to see if EAD import & export
had been fixed or improved. I just tried importing and exporting a file.  I also get only PDF exported whether or not
the PDF box is checked.

You can still get EAD out through the API - you need the id numbers for the repo and the resource:

curl_as_osx admin admin http://localhost:8089/repositories/${repo}/resource_descriptions/${resource}.xml<http://localhost:8089/repositories/$%7brepo%7d/resource_descriptions/$%7bresource%7d.xml>

I noticed the same issue while trying out the test site.  When I discovered that I couldn't test the EAD export, I didn't go any further.

Has anyone had success downloading EAD from the new release candidate? I wanted to see if there were any changes in EAD export with the new version, but with the inclusion of PDF downloads, I am now unable to download an XML file. Export -- Download EADnow just defaults to fatestx_ead.pdf even when Print to PDF is not selected.

Wanted to see if this was a local issue or more widely seen.
