Version 1.1.0 Released

The new version (1.1.0) has been released of the METS Editor and can be downloaded from sourceforge or at http://ufdc.ufl.edu/software/mets

This new version includes the following changes and bug fixes, many of which were pointed out by SUS users.

  • Corrected issue with the slash being the wrong way for files which appear in subfolders in the fileSec ( i.e., "xlink:href="106_105\01\105_01-01.tif" is now correctly "xlink:href="106_105/01/105_01-01.tif" )
  • Corrected the mapping of genre when importing from spreadsheets. Was a genre SUBJECT term, rather than a top-level genre element
  • Corrected issue which prevented saving to Microsoft Excel files after batch METS file creation
  • Updated MARC21 reading/writing libraries to latest code, which is much more resilient when something unexpected occurs
  • Added the following new mappings to the spreadsheet importer
    • Alternate Title (Language)
    • Classification
    • Classification (Authority)

    • Viewer (for use with SobekCM repositories only)
    • Webskin (for use with SobekCM repositories only)
  • Updated the code surrounding projects (.pmets) as default metadata so it now works correctly.
  • Updated the SobekCM Resource Object at the core of this application to include all the recent enhancements and modifications for the SobekCM web repository

In addition, there was a version 1.0.4 which was never released on SourceForge. (Eeeks! Sorry!) This new version also includes the following changes included in that version:

  • Added ability from the structure map to add file references ( i.e., URI ) to the METS. (External files)
  • Added ability to recurse through subfolders within the resource folder and include files in subfolders in METS
  • Added ability to import records via Z39.50 ( on 32-bit machines )
  • Added ability to easily add wrapper divs in the structure map outside the resource ( commonly used for volume/issue information )
  • Updated the installer to be built by the open-source WiX Installer, rather than Visual Studio Installer

If anyone encounters any problems with the new version, please let me know!
