Archivematica 1.7 included user interface translation support (see [https://github.com/artefactual/archivematica/pull/506 PR #506]). This work covered a large majority of the user interface but did not include the text describing jobs executed as part of the microservices. Those text descriptions are held in the application database making it difficult to maintain multiple translations.
  
We fixed this issue. Here's why it's a net benefit to the project and the community, and here is how it will impact your workflow. Also included are any special notes, like if it's a beta feature.
+
This change will move these text descriptions out of the database into json files. This will make it much easier to add new translations and maintain them over time.

Please note that while we transition to a new platform for translation we are currently not accepting any newly translated strings for Archivematica. For more info please see: https://groups.google.com/d/msg/archivematica/6qMM1KJbWp8/LuPO_VqyEAAJ

March ##, 2019

Contents

Supported environments

Please see installation instructions link here.

Archivematica 1.9 and Storage Service 0.14 are supported for production use in the following environments:

  • Ubuntu 16.04 64-bit Server Edition

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

Added

AIP Migration

This feature creates a new endpoint for the storage service API. It will allow a client to make a request to the API to move an AIP from one storage location to another storage location (of the same type). The storage service is aware of the move so there is no need to re-index (compared to moving AIPs manually).

The primary issue for this change is archivematica/Issues: Issue 71

This work was sponsored by the Museum of Modern Art. Thank you!

Stored DIP deletion

This enhancement adds a new option to delete a DIP to the storage service user interface.

This change is described by artefactual/archivematica-storage-service: Issue #319

Documentation here.

This work was sponsored by Simon Fraser University Archives. Thank you!

Changed

Increased Internationalization

Archivematica 1.7 included user interface translation support (see PR #506). This work covered a large majority of the user interface but did not include the text describing jobs executed as part of the microservices. Those text descriptions are held in the application database making it difficult to maintain multiple translations.

This change will move these text descriptions out of the database into json files. This will make it much easier to add new translations and maintain them over time.

Please note that while we transition to a new platform for translation we are currently not accepting any newly translated strings for Archivematica. For more info please see: https://groups.google.com/d/msg/archivematica/6qMM1KJbWp8/LuPO_VqyEAAJ

This enhancement is described by artefactual/archivematica: Issue #1101
