DSpace 6.0 is in the house; DSpace at the National Library of Finland
The DSpace Committer team is pleased to announce ------------
Check out the new release of DSpace 6.0 (release notes) which features an enhanced configuration system, enhanced file storage plugins, and new quality control/healthcheck reporting features (via REST API and via email). In addition, DSpace 6 has an eye on the future, with a major Java API refactor that adds support for both UUIDs and Hibernate in our database layer. Like its predecessor, DSpace 6 continues to strive to simplify the upgrade process by automatically updating your database to 6.x compatibility (from any prior DSpace version). Read more here.
