ArchivesSpace Release Candidate v.2.5.2-RC1 Available

Hello everyone,

There is a new release candidate version of ArchivesSpace available for review.

Please see this message from Christine Di Bella of ArchivesSpace:


The ArchivesSpace team is pleased to announce a release candidate, v2.5.2-RC1. You can download it at or test it out without downloading at (username admin /password admin). We do encourage you to download and try it out with your own local setup and/or data if you can for the most accurate results.

This release candidate contains program-led and community pull requests that provide feature enhancements, bug fixes, infrastructure improvements, and documentation updates. A focus is continuing to improve accessibility of the public and staff interfaces. The release candidate also includes an enhanced agent merge function and more options for configuring OAI-PMH harvesting.

Thanks to the community members who made contributions to this release, including individual archives staff and developers, as well as our Development Prioritization sub-team, Technical Documentation sub-team, and Core Committers Group.

Recognizing that many people will be spending less time with their ArchivesSpaces for a bit, we’ll be taking feedback on this release candidate through Friday, January 4. Please let us know at if you notice any problems with the specific areas addressed in this release, or if anything that was working before no longer is. Barring major issues, we expect to release v2.5.2 in early January.


Christine Di Bella

ArchivesSpace Program Manager
