New Features in EPrints 3.3.x
This list will be fleshed out as we get closer to a final release.
"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, updates
Import plugins can now have a sibling Screen plugin that provides the interface for using that importer.
- Backup your database before installing this update. While upgrading has been tested you should always backup your repository before installing updates that change your database schema.
- This is a new branch release that will make significant changes to your repository's database and configuration. Upgrading repositories may require fixes to appearance and/or configuration to continue working.
