Release Notes: This release fixed authentication bugs on Windows and bugs in the remote GLI. Interface improvements were made in GLI. New 'NoText' metadata can be used to suppress the dummy text. The remote GLI now works on IIS 6. Open on the File menu is now disabled while a collection is loading to prevent exceptions. You can now double click an index to bring up the 'Edit Index' window. Catalan and Vietnamese GLI interfaces were added. There were also other improvements and bugfixes.
Release Notes: This "stable" release had no major new features, but included many bugfixes and minor improvements.
Release Notes: A new installer. Much improved GLI compatibility with Java 1.5.0. The ability to import documents exported from DSpace and vice versa. A smarter HTMLPlug that blocks the images in the HTML files it processes, and no others. New GLI metadata sets: Qualified Dublin Core, NZGLS, AGLS, and RFC 1807. Lucene building support (for real this time). An improved and much more bandwidth-efficient GLI applet. Support for sub-fields in the Greenstone Editor for Metadata Sets (GEMS). Many other improvements and bugfixes.
Release Notes: This version includes the "Greenstone Librarian Interface", a tool for collecting, expanding and building digital libraries. It gives users access to Greenstone's functionality from an easy-to-use 'point and click' interface. Other important changes include a new plugin for importing data from Perl's DBI interface, a new plugin for parsing records from OAI servers, improvements to MGPP configuration, and many bugfixes and other improvements.
Release Notes: Version 2.35 includes many plugin enhancements, including bzip2 support, improved PDF and Word document handling, an updated ImagePlug (Unix only), and optional XML files for adding extra metadata. A Russian translation of the user interface has also been added. Documents are now stored as XML. Greenstone now works on MaxOS X (or any POSIX system), and the new CORBA interface gives other programs access to Greenstone collections.
Release Notes: New manuals, many bugfixes, changes to administrator page (including the ability to check logs), autodetection of document encodings and langauges, improved handling of Cyrillic and similar languages, classifiers have new argument format, improvements to MSWordPlug and PDFPlug (available in Windows too), and revamping of Search histories. Addition of CORBA, Kea can add Keyword metadata to any document, and numerous MGPP updates. Phind works with thesauri, has new appearance parameters, can be tailored to specific languages, and works when applied several times to one collection.
Release Notes: Greenstone 2.30 introduces new import plugins (for source code, postscript, Refer and BibTex), updates many exsting plugins, and tidies up the third-party packages. The admin page has new functionality, and the configuration options have been extended to enhance logging (now off by default) and error notification. Development continues on windows (stability) and phrase browsing (integration). Many bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: "The Collector" works in Windows 95/98 and is more stable on other platforms, and the "Phind" phrase browsing interface is a Greenstone classifier. Various smaller improvements include document display modes, Z39.50 efficiencies, new metadata extraction, enhancements to the install and make scripts, and many bugfixes.
Release Notes: New distribution formats (Windows binary, Linux binary, Source), Dutch interface, various bugfixes (particularly to install & uninstall scripts), updates to included packages, documentation for making your own home page, and a little bit of unstable research thrown in for good measure.
