Release Notes

N.B. Due to the changes below the Perl JSON library is now required. This can be installed as the perl-JSON RPM package, libjson-perl DEB package or by running "cpan JSON". Similarly, the TeX::Encode module needs to be installed as it has been removed from the core codebase. This can be installed as the libtex_encode_perl DEB package on by running "cpan TeX::Encode". (No RPM is available in the standard YUM repositories.)

Changes from 3.4.0

  • Minor bug and typo fixes and addition of missing phrases.
  • Ensure multi_param method is used if available.
  • Improved default rendering of history tab
  • Each part of the subjects hierarchy now a separate link
  • Fixed rendering off logged in user link as part of the login menu.
  • Added template field for DataObjs, so they can have a non-default display template.
  • Better HTML class/ID labelling to faciltate CSS styling.
  • Update CAPTCHA MetaFields to use ReCAPTCHAv2 by default.
  • Better management of dependencies between ingredients.
  • Allow searches to have their own titles defined directly rather than just constructed from the title phrase (e.g. Title matches "test" AND Authors is "Smith")
  • Added JavaScript variable definitions for user ID, name and type so these can be used client side.
  • Enabled text indexing on set fields by default.
  • Allow leaf nodes (i.e. pages rather than menus) of browse views to use a different template to other nodes.
  • Added user role to give no (rather than all) editorial rights to an editor unless specified.
  • Allow latest items feeds to only be displayed if specified rather than dependent on values set for the export plugin itself.
  • Made configuration for side-wide HTTPS simpler.
  • Prevent default export of issues field even for admin export, as this field can get exponentially quite large and is rarely useful as part of a general export.
  • Fixed request processing so GET and HEAD requests get routed the same way.
  • Added basic history search functionality.
  • Colour space fix when generating thumbnails
  • Fix to ensure EPMC screen plugins have the super class plugin pre-loaded
  • Added registry line to /cgi/counter to list included paths for flavours, ingredients and otehr library directories.
