we are not strictly following our plans but we will try to deliver
geonetwork 2.1 final by end of July. This version should have
been the release candidate (RC) but there were too much
features left and too many bugs to fix. So, here is the beta-5.
Starting with beta-4 we merged intermap into geonetwork. With
Beta-5 this integration is still being tuned. The geographic search
works but there is still some work to be done in this area.
We worked hard to fix bugs. Many trac tickets have been closed
and others will be so this beta should be pretty stable. I would like
to thank Simon Pigot here, who made an excellent work in fixing
some nasty bugs of the editor.
A few words about new features:
- Tooltips have been added to metadata elements in both the
editor and metadata view. This is very usefull when editing
- The privileges EDIT and ADMIN have been removed and the concepts
of metadata owner and ownership have been introduced. I will
write some docs for them in time for the RC.
I have also tried to fix some problems with postgres but I don't have
it installed so I was unable to verify them. Anyway, I encourage users
to provide tons of feedback in order to deliver a bugs free final release.
Thanks to all!
