Dear ArchivesSpace members,

We are pleased to announce that a release candidate - v1.5.3-RC1 (https://github.com/archivesspace/archivesspace/releases/tag/v1.5.3-RC1) - is now available for download and testing purposes. This minor release has some bug fixes, including a fix for the issue with components being exported in EAD in a different order from how they appear in the staff interface (https://archivesspace.atlassian.net/browse/AR-1620), as well as improvements to overall performance. It features work from our development partner, Hudson Molonglo (HM), as well as contributions from community members and release management from our new Tech Lead, Laney McGlohon.

Please try out this release candidate as you are able over the next few days and let us know if you experience any problems. If you don't wish to download anything at this time, you can still test drive the release candidate on our test site, http://test.archivesspace.org, using the standard administrative login.

There are two ways to let us know the results of your testing:

*         If you have a JIRA account, put a comment on the relevant JIRA issue for the bug fix or feature. (If you don't already have a JIRA account, you can sign up directly from http://development.archivesspace.org<http://development.archivesspace.org/> by choosing the Create an account option on the login page.)

*         If you have feedback that spans issues, or if you'd prefer not to work in JIRA, email it directly to me.

If at all possible, please submit your feedback no later than Monday, February 6.

It's probably obvious, but what we can address right now is limited to making sure the bug fixes and additional features in this release are working as they should and not impacting other functions unintentionally. You may send us comments and ideas on anything at any time, of course, but, as you would expect, we won't be able to undertake work outside these areas in the narrow window before this release is out the door, so to speak.

Barring unforeseen issues, we expect the production release of 1.5.3 to come out by February 10. We expect the next major release of ArchivesSpace, 1.6.0, to come out in March.

Thanks to HM for all their work on this release candidate, to our community members that contributed code, and to those on the Prioritization and Testing sub-teams who identified and tested the needed bug fixes. If you have any questions, or if you notice any issues while testing, please let us know.
