New Dependencies

For future facilitation of interchangeable JavaScript libraries, Prototype JavaScript currently used by EPrints has been moved to become an ingredient. Therefore, for those upgrading their repository the following line needs to be added to your flavour's inc file (e.g. /opt/eprints3/flavours/pub_lib/inc):

ingredients/prototypejs

Be sure to hard refresh (e.g. Ctrl+Shift+R) your web browser (after add this ingredient and reload your web server) to clear the JavaScript client-side cache.

Check earlier dependencies for EPrints 3.4.3 and before.

Known Issues

LDAP-based authentication for new users

If you use LDAP-based authentication to login users and your $c->{check_user_password} function includes code that creates new user accounts on-the-fly if they do not already is exists in EPrints, then users without a pre-existing user account will no longer be able to login. This is due to code implemented to allow user accounts to be locked if there were too many consecutive failed login attempts. This patch has been created to fix the issue by not requiring a user account to exist, which means a new user account can be created but there can be no restriction on how many times non-registered user can attempt to login as there is no user account that can be locked.
