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

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)

    • 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!
