DSpace 5.10 Release Notes

We recommend sites dependent on Java 7, REST API and/or RDF skip DSpace 5.9 and update to DSpace 5.10

Unfortunately, bug fixes in the DSpace 5.9 release resulted in issues running DSpace 5.9 on Java 7, and with running the REST API and RDF interfaces. These issues are being resolved in an upcoming 5.10 release (see below for more details). Sites which are dependent on one of these features should consider upgrading directly from DSpace 5.8 to 5.10.


DSpace 5.10 is a bug fix release to resolve JAR dependency issues found in DSpace 5.9 for users running Java 7 (regardless of Tomcat version).

This release also addresses a bug in the DSpace 5.9 release that prevented VIEW statistics from being logged by DSpace.

Other minor bug fixes have been included in the release.

Major bug fixes include

  • DS-4000 - Getting issue details... STATUS
  • DS-4020 - Getting issue details... STATUS

Other fixes include

  • DS-4007 - Getting issue details... STATUS
    • To fully realize the benefit of this fix, a full discover reindex is recommended.  

      • If you don't reindex, newly added bitstreams would no longer display the file metadata in their index. (But, old bitstreams would still continue to display file metadata until you do a full reindex). 
      • Institutions unaffected/unconcerned by this bug do not need to reindex.  If you do choose to reindex, then the bug would be fully fixed

In addition, this release fixes a variety of minor bugs in the 5.x releases. For more information, see the Changes section below.
