Thanks to everyone who tested the previous  v1.5.0 release candidates. Based on the results reported, all fixes and features intended for the next release have been incorporated and we've put up a new release candidate at https://github.com/archivesspace/archivesspace/releases/tag/v1.5.0-RC3. In addition to the container management and other enhancements that were included in the previous release candidates, v1.5.0 RC3 includes new enhancements to the location module that have been recently implemented by Hudson Molonglo and were funded by New York University.  User documentation for the container management features is in the user manual now, and an adapted version of the documentation NYU staff drafted and contributed for the locations functions (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1oTx950yp1KdTz9cJsUaAPsqt8NfQnNjvNoNfpXzOa_I/edit?usp=sharing) will be added there by the time of the release.

Please test this release candidate as you are able and let us know if you encounter any problems or have any concerns. Assuming testing data is positive, we intend to distribute the 1.5.0 release on Friday, July 15. In the meantime, look for an announcement of a webinar giving an overview of the release and demonstrating many of these features very soon.
