NEW DSpace 6.0 Now Available: Enabling Open Access to Global Scholarship

Austin, TX   2,207 users from around the world have implemented repositories with the popular DSpace, out-of-the box, open source, repository software in order to openly share and preserve digital scholarly information from more than 122 countries.

To take a look at the wide range of institutions and organizations that are using DSpace to make their scholarly resources discoverable and accessible visit the DSpace Registry:

This week the DSpace community has proudly released DSpace 6.0, with a big thank you for contributed code, bug reports, and bug fixes from 73 individuals. Together with DuraSpace these are the people who have helped make significant DSpace API enhancements and new features freely available to all.

This release 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 your upgrade process by automatically updating your database to 6.x compatibility (from any prior DSpace version).
