DSpace 7

DSpace 7 brings to DSpace a single, modern user interface and REST API and integrates current technological standards and best practices. This new UI combines with the existing core backend of DSpace 6, resulting in a lean, responsive, next-generation repository.

A Preview release of DSpace 7 is available now for download and testing. An enhanced Preview release is anticipated this summer, and the DSpace 7 Beta release and information about the DSpace 7 Testathon will be announced later this year. You can learn more at the DSpace 7 Release Status page.
