The ArchivesSpace team is happy to release v1.5.1<https://github.com/archivesspace/archivesspace/releases/tag/v1.5.1>.

This release addresses two issues that were discovered after last week's v1.5.0 release:

*         Ensures that the correct version of Solr is packaged and modifies some Solr behavior not needed for ArchivesSpace installations. This addresses the indexing issues that were experienced by people with very large ArchivesSpace databases and will improve indexing performance for all database sizes. (https://github.com/archivesspace/archivesspace/pull/497 and https://github.com/archivesspace/archivesspace/pull/502)

*         Makes some changes to the EAD exporter to ensure that invalid EAD is not produced when ampersands or <extref> are present in some notes. (https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/browse/AR-1533)

If you already upgraded to v1.5.0, this will be a minor upgrade and you can follow the standard upgrade instructions (http://archivesspace.github.io/archivesspace/user/upgrading-to-a-new-release-of-archivesspace/). If you are moving from v1.4.2 or earlier versions of ArchivesSpace, please review the additional upgrade considerations at https://github.com/archivesspace/archivesspace/blob/master/UPGRADING_1.5.0.md.

Thank you to the community members at Harvard University, Duke University, Rockefeller Archive Center, University of Michigan, American Academy of Rome, University of Denver, and the University of California San Diego who first identified these issues, contributed discussion about them, and provided data with which to test them. Thanks to the team at Hudson Molonglo, Chris Fitzpatrick, Mark Cooper at LYRASIS, and Mark Custer at Yale for providing the diagnoses and development work that enabled the issues to be addressed quickly.
