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.

DSpace 7 is currently in Beta, with active development and testing happening in the DSpace 7 Working Group. You can learn more about the latest Beta release at the DSpace 7 Release Notes page.
