  The ArchivesSpace team is happy to release version 1.4.0.<https://github.com/archivesspace/archivesspace/releases/tag/v1.4.0>

   This release includes solutions to the rendering (AR-1311<https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/browse/AR-1183>) and
   re-ordering (AR-1183<https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/browse/AR-1183>) performance problems that many users reported.
   These solutions were distributed in two release candidates in late
   August, and received approval from several users.

   This release also includes several new features: an enhanced interface
   to the LCNAF plugin that makes it easier to scan and identify
   authority records for import; ability to see how many times and where
   a controlled value term has been applied; ability to set a default
   order for notes in the resource and digital object modules; and the
   ability to record extent statements in the Rapid Date Entry template
   in the resource module.

   Please see the technical documentation <http://archivesspace.github.io/archivesspace/> for information on how to
   upgrade your ArchivesSpace installs.

   Please see the release page<https://github.com/archivesspace/archivesspace/releases> for a listing of all the new features and
   bug fixes included in this release.

   Thanks to all the volunteers on the ArchivesSpace User Advisory and
   Technical Advisory Councils, who have contributed substantially to
   advancing the development of ArchivesSpace.

   Please let us know if you have any questions, comments, or concerns.
