This release implements a number of enhancements and bug fixes to Research Vocabularies Australia and Research Data Australia. Below is the list of all the changes planned for this release.

Research Vocabularies Australia

  • When fetching vocabulary data from PoolParty, get connection parameters from the right place, rather than from a legacy configuration file 
  • When using My Vocabs to add a vocabulary from PoolParty, disable the "Use this PoolParty Project" button until a project has been selected 
  • When doing backups of vocabulary data from PoolParty, set connect and read timeouts for the connection to PoolParty in case the connection hangs 
  • Restore correct behaviour for the canonical URL path to the search page (/vocabs/search) 
  • Configure the Portal's analytics log files to be created and named per-day 

Research Data Australia

  • Fix an issue with Related Information (relatedInfo) URI links
