The CollectionSpace team is pleased to announce the release of CollectionSpace 1.3, which is now available for download. This new release builds on CollectionSpace 1.0 by adding the Object Exit procedure, new fields in the Cataloging procedure, repeatable fields and repeatable groups of fields, User Roles and Permissions, many critical bugs, and full regression QA testing. Additionally, developers will be able to take advantage of the integration with Jasper Reports to write CollectionSpace reports. In the future, report generation will be integrated with the UI to make it easy for users to run reports. Jasper Reports, the reporting engine, is included in the CollectionSpace download, and you will need to download Jasper iReport, the authoring tool, to your PC. Please see our Documentation for more information about how to use these features.
