Release date: still in progress!

Contents

[edit] Environments

Please see the installation instructions.

Archivematica 1.11 and Storage Service 0.16 have been tested in the following environments:

  • Ubuntu 18.04 64-bit Server Edition
  • CentOS 7 64-bit

For development purposes, most of our developers prefer to use Docker containers. These and all above environments are linked from the installation instructions above.

Please note due to a dependency issue we have not provided RPMs for the 1.12 release. We plan to address this issue in a point release and provide RPMs then.

Note: if you are upgrading from Archivematica 1.10.x or earlier, please be sure to clean up the completed transfers watched directory before upgrading. Instructions can be found on the Upgrading page in the documentation.

[edit] Added

[edit] Processing configuration selector

This feature allows the user to choose a processing configuration at the time of transfer by way of a drop down in the "Start transfer" button.

This feature has been sponsored by Simon Fraser University Archives. Thank you!

[edit] Column selectors for the Backlog and Archival Storage tab

Users can now choose the columns displayed while browsing the Backlog and Archival Storage tabs so they can see the information most relevant to them.

[edit] Central Authorization Service (CAS) for Archivematica and Storage Service

[edit] OpenID Connect (OIDC) support for Archivematica and Storage Service

OIDC support is a community contribution by Wellcome Collection. Thank you!

[edit] Changed

[edit] Django 1.12 support

Archivematica has been upgraded to Django 1.12 LTS. Our next target is Django 2.2 LTS!

There are a couple of things to be aware of during the Archivematica upgrade in this respect:

  • For a seamless experience for your users make sure that all active user sessions are deleted. We explain how here: Maintenance > Clear user sessions.
  • Django's User model now comes with a character limit of 150 characters. In Archivematica v1.11.x or older we had that limit set to 250 characters via a third-party app that we have now deleted. During the database migration (i.e. when running manage.py migrate), users may be required to fix the problem manually. See the migration module documentation for more details. We expect this to be highly unlikely to happen since the exception is only triggered when the 150 character limit in the username field is exceeded.

[edit] Replace whitelist with allowlist

We have changed "whitelist" to "allowlist" in an effort to use more inclusive language throughout Archivematica's code.

[edit] Fixed

And more! Please see the 1.12 milestone in Github for all issues addressed in this release: https://github.com/archivematica/Issues/milestone/12
