Hello ArchivesSpace members,

The ArchivesSpace team is pleased to announce the availability of v2.5.0. You 
can download it at 

This release contains many program-led and community pull requests that provide 
feature enhancements, bug fixes, infrastructure improvements, and documentation 
updates. The centerpiece of this release is the refactored reports worked on by 
our co-op student from Georgia Tech, Sarah Morrissey.
Another especially noteworthy improvement is code that has been contributed by 
Mark Triggs that reduces loading times for records in the staff interface. Our 
contractor Manny Rodriguez from LibraryHost continues to provide invaluable 
work to improve our OAI-PMH and export functionality.

Other items of note include small updates to the PDF produced from the public 
interface and the option to use Japanese translations for the interface labels. 
There are also some bug fixes for the public and staff interfaces and some 
additional automated tests and infrastructure upgrades. The full list of bug 
fixes and improvements is included in the release notes.

Thanks to community members Mark Triggs, Chris Fitzpatrick, Lora Woodford, Mark 
Cooper, Dave Mayo, Steve Majewski, knjko, Jacob Brown, and Brian Harrington for 
their code contributions. We are also very appreciative of all the work our 
Development Prioritization sub-team, Testing sub-team, and Core Committers 
Group do in helping prioritize, test, and do code review for issues for this 
and all of our releases. A special note of gratitude goes to the Reports 
sub-team for all their long-standing and indefatigable work in helping us 
improve reports.

Information on upgrading to a new version of ArchivesSpace is available at 
 If you have not already upgraded to a 2.4.x version, we recommend going 
directly to 2.5.0, though, depending on the version you are coming from, you 
should read the special considerations for upgrading from/to different versions 
that are linked to from the upgrading document first. If you have any questions 
or need help upgrading, please let us know.
