CollectionSpace is pleased to announce the release of CollectionSpace Version 4.3. 

Highlights of the release include: refactoring and acceptance of a Django-based community-contributed framework for web applications, that uses CollectionSpace data and APIs; support for Amazon S3 backend storage; an upgrade of the Service API to the latest version of RESTEasy; and improvements to our reporting documentation.

We’re also pleased to announce the inclusion of CollectionSpace as a data source for the Culture Object WordPress plugin developed by Thirty8 digital. Culture Object is available from the WordPress plugin repository. Full documentation via this link.

We would like to extend thanks to the community members who assisted with the QA process for this release; without your contributions, this release would not have been possible.
