  • Update the correction and suggestion services with the result of the Openaire ELD Advanced project​ (postponed from 2023.02.00 to wait for review of the corresponding plain DSpace PRs)
  • Enhanced Signposting support for DSpace-CRIS

  • Mechanism to track check / timestamp outside of metadata: several features need to store a timestamp as a technical metadata on the item to allow incremental processing. This is the case for example for bibliometric update, bibliographic scan, sync procedures. We will introduce a dedicated mechanism outside of metadata to avoid "update" of the item when no strictly needed​
