Scout Portal Toolkit

SPT version 1.3.0 has been released, and is now available for download on the Scout web site.

This is a BETA release, which means that it is not recommended for use on a live public site. There are more new features and more new code in this version than usual, but that will probably also mean more new bugs. The previous stable SPT version is still available on the download page.

With this release we have also synchronized the SPT and CWIS version numbers (both are version 1.3.0) to reduce confusion between versions.

Highlights of the release include:

  • support for OAI sets
  • support for customizable templates for saved search e-mails
  • ability to export Tree, Controlled Name, and Option values
  • increased field size for adding/editing classifications
  • importing of data now translates \t and \n (tab and newline) to literal values
  • new optional unique field for data import
