Home > Release Notes > Archivematica 1.13.0 and Storage Service 0.18.0

Release date: ???

Contents

Environments

Please see the installation instructions.

Archivematica 1.13.0 and Storage Service 0.18.0 have been tested in the following environments:

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

Please note that we've dropped support for Ubuntu Linux 16.04 since it reached the end of its five-year LTS window on April 30th 2021. We're planning to add support for Ubuntu 20.04 in the short term.

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

Added

Disableable virus scanning

Virus scanning is now disableable from the processing configuration.

Purge management command

A new management command has been added to provide a mechanism to remove old processing data from the system filling up the application database and search indices.

Strong password validation

Archivematica and the Storage Service can now require strong passwords for user accounts. Prompts are given when creating a new user if the password doesn't meet the requirements.

This feature was Sponsored by the City of Winnipeg Archives. Thank you!

Changed

Python 3

All Archivematica components are now running on Python 3.6.

Archivematica Storage Service now uses MySQL by default

MySQL is now the default database in Archivematica Storage Service. SQLite is still supported but we encourage users to migrate. We have documented the process: Migrating data from SQLite to MySQL.

Fixed

Please see the 1.13 milestone in GitHub for all issues addressed in this release: https://github.com/archivematica/Issues/milestone/17.
