Aeon 5.0.3 point release and Aeon ArchivesSpace Client Addon 2.0 now available

Hello Aeon Community,

I have some happy Friday news for you regarding two new releases.

This morning we released Aeon version 5.0.3. This point release is a client update only and does not require a server update. This means most staff should be able to download and install the client without the need for administrator privileges.

The Aeon 5.0.3 fixes several bugs, including:

  • template issues with Activities in the client
  • validation issues with the Request from File upload
  • date values exported as plain text rather than date format

To read the full release notes, please visit:

To download the new client release, visit:

PLEASE NOTE: all installer files are now password protected. Please email for credentials. 


Second, the Aeon ArchivesSpace Client Addon version 2.0 has been released and is available for download in GitHub. This addon is installed in your Aeon client and allows staff to access the staff interface of ArchivesSpace within Aeon. Version 2.0 includes support for importing barcodes and for importing the titles from each Location that is linked to an instance's Top container. Please visit to read the release notes and download the new version.


We hope to see many of you at this year's Aeon Symposium hosted by the University of Georgia. The symposium will be held May 31-June 2, 2020 in Athens, GA. More details to come.
