Theme: What's coming in VIVO 1.7

VIVO v1.7 release planning
At the March, 2014 DuraSpace Sponsor Summit in Washington, DC, VIVO sponsors in attendance expressed approval for moving to a regular release schedule as a means of bringing bug fixes and new features into production in a more predictable timeframe.  Early summer and late fall have been selected as release dates to precede summer vacation and winter break periods, when key developers and testers may be unavailable.

The timetable for VIVO 1.7 has been adjusted to fit this paradigm only recently and the release will therefore be modest in scope, focusing primarily on improvements and bug fixes to features introduced in VIVO 1.6, 1.6.1, and 1.6.2, as well as a new integration with the Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) application programming interface that will allow researchers to create and/or confirm ORCID iDs from within VIVO (see VIVO-ORCID Integration).

For a longer picture view, see the VIVO Technical Roadmap presentation from the March DuraSpace Sponsor Summit.
