Topic: Kete 1.1 is here
Kete 1.1 announcement.
Kete 1.1 is now available with a giant helping of new features and improvements. This is also the first release where you can grab Kete from our code repository's new home at Github.com. See the downloads page for details or browse the code online at http://github.com/kete/kete/.
- Privacy Control - ability to designate any item version within a basket as only viewable to its members (guide at http://old.kete.net.nz/documentation/topics/show/191-use-privacy-controls-on-whole-site-or-a-specific-basket)
- Content Licensing - users can choose from Kete instance's available Licenses for a piece of content they create. Creative Commons licenses are available to be loaded as license options with one command on the server. (guide at http://old.kete.net.nz/documentation/topics/show/181-using-content-licenses-in-kete-11)
- OAI-PMH Repository - an Kete instance can optionally answer OAI-PMH harvester requests for its content. (guide at http://old.kete.net.nz/documentation/topics/show/190-turning-on-ketes-oai-pmh-repository)
- Force use of SSL Encryption on Private Items and User Account Information (optional) - Kete now can be configured to use HTTPS for all sensitive areas (login, registration, private items, certain administrator functionality). (guide at http://old.kete.net.nz/documentation/topics/show/172-forcing-kete-to-use-ssl-for-private-requests)
We are also now using a much more robust issue tracker for reporting bugs or requesting features at http://kete.lighthouseapp.com/, but I recommend you take a look at http://old.kete.net.nz/site/topics/show/23-how-to-add-a-ticket first.
Kete 1.1's major work was funded by Te Reo o Taranaki, Aotearoa Peoples Network New Zealand (http://www.peoplesnetworknz.info/), the New Zealand Mental Health Commission (http://www.mhc.govt.nz/), Katipo, and HLT. It was done by myself, Steven Upritchard, and new Kete team members at Katipo, James Stradling and Kieran Pilkington. Patches were contributed by Joe Atzberger and Mason James for Liblime as well as Sam Villain for Catalyst IT, Ltd.
Kete is a Ruby on Rails application, so huge thanks go to those that have worked on Ruby and Ruby on Rails for providing a great foundation to build an application on top of. Thanks also go to the team at IndexData (http://www.indexdata.com/) for their work on Zebra which Kete uses as the basis for its search and browsing functionality.
Kete also benefits from numerous plugin and gem developers, see vendor/plugins and config/required_software.yml for details. Thank you for the great software libraries!
Enjoy Kete 1.1,
