- XMLUI and JSPUI are no longer supported or distributed with DSpace. All users should immediately migrate to and utilize the new Angular User Interface.
- ElasticSearch Usage Statistics have been removed. Please use SOLR Statistics or DSpace Google Analytics Statistics.
- Configuration has been upgraded to Apache Commons Configuration version 2. For most users, you should see no effect or difference. No DSpace configuration files were modified during this upgrade and no configurations or settings were renamed or changed. However, if you locally modified or customized the
[dspace]/config/config-definition.xml(DSpace's Apache Commons Configuration settings), you will need to ensure those modifications are compatible with Apache Commons Configuration version 2. See the Apache Commons Configuration's configuration definition file reference for more details.
- Some commandline tools/scripts are now enabled in the new REST API (e.g. index-discovery): See new Scripts endpoint: https://github.com/DSpace/Rest7Contract/blob/master/scripts-endpoint.md
