New Features in EPrints 3.3.x

This list will be fleshed out as we get closer to a final release.

EPrints Bazaar

"1-click" extensions and add-ons

Search engine plugins

Searches are now executed through the plugins layer with a new 'Search' plugin type. EPrints 3.3 comes with one new search engine: Xapian. Xapian is a probabilistic search engine that supports boolean queries. Requires the Search::Xapian Perl library and a full re-index.

The Internal search engine supports prefixed terms in simple search e.g. "title:(american eagle) birds".

XSLT-based Imports, Exports and Citation Styles

Flexible object support

Define any new object classes which can be created, browsed, searched etc.

SWORD 2.0/CRUD support

Improved workflow and document management

AJAX-based upload, deletion and updates of documents. Files now upload automatically and have a progress bar that works in all current browsers.

Document "actions" are now individual plugins allowing extensions to add actions to individual documents in the workflow. Supplied actions include conversion, unpacking (.zip and .tar.gz), additional files and metadata extraction.

Import workflows

Import plugins can now have a sibling Screen plugin that provides the interface for using that importer.
