The VIVO 1.13.0 Release Candidate 1 is available for community testing
For instructions, please
We will be testing this release candidate until 19 June 2022.
Please consider helping to test: community involvement in the
testing process is critical, especially for ensuring a smooth
upgrade process for existing VIVO sites. See the release testing
page above for links to forms where you can submit your findings
directly. Any parts of any of the forms that you are able to fill
in will be greatly appreciated by the development team.
What's New in 1.13.0
Uploading of filesassociated with individuals in VIVO
Adds an option for uploading a file and link it with an individual in
VIVO. For instance, it might be associated with a book
<http://purl.org/ontology/bibo/Book>). The associated file might be
deleted by user with appropriate privilege (administrator or
self-editor), or downloaded by a visitor. It is possible toconfigure
allowed MIME types and maximal file size
Password authentication on external smtp servers
VIVO can be configured to send email using an smtp service of customer
choice. Prior to VIVO 1.13.0 it wasn't possible to set up a
non-standard port of SMTP server, neither username and password for SMTP
authentication. Since 1.13.0, it is possible by configuring runtime
Please find out how to do that atthe minimum configuration wiki page
Additional features to the SPARQL Update API - Add POST body support
The API supports sending data via an 'update' parameter. Prior to
v1.13.0, this was the only method of sending SPARQL update data. Since
1.13.0, VIVO also supports sending data via the POST message body. To
use this method, you must set the request content type
to|application/sparql-update|. This method parses the data as an input
stream and may offer a performance improvement for large amounts of data.
Online translation editor
Adds option for VIVO and Vitro localization on website with downloading
results in .properties file. This should simplify process of Vitro and
VIVO interface translation. A VIVO administrator can enable online
translation checkbox in Developer's panel.After that, an online
translator panel will appear at the left side of the screen with
extracted all labels of the certain page. The translation of those
labels can be entered in input fields and at the end the user can export
translations in a form of a property file.
Localization for the Russian language and for the Serbian Language
The VIVO 1.13.0 has been extended to support Russian and Serbian
localizations. Hopefully, this will improve popularity and adoption of
the platform in Russia and Serbia.
Deletion of individuals and linked objects
Adds functionality to delete individuals and specify SPARQL Query to
also delete individual dependent objects. This is some form of
controlled cascade deletion.
