In brief: * You will need to upgrade the database structure using epadmin upgrade, see below for more details. * The new JSON export plugin exposes all the metadata from on EPrint, if you disabled the XML export you may wish to disable this too. Views * New config. style for views (old style still works too) * Views "menu" pages can now be split up, eg. A-C, D-F, G-I etc. (new default Author view uses this option) * Fixed a bug where bad view URLs created huge pages and ate memory. * Removed bogus xmlns attributes. JSON * Added both an export plugin, plus a CGI script to allow javascript callbacks (which allows mashups to work on your data). * To turn on the callback script to allow mashups etc. set $c->{json}->{enable} = 1; in the config. This is set by default on new repositories. * The syntax of the callback script is /cgi/json?callback=my_function&eprintid=23 * The data exposed by the JSON export plugin is the same as for EP3XML so if you have sensitive data in your records, you may wish to disable it, and not enable the callback script. Unicode * Several fixes to issues with encoding. OAI * Added support for custom OAI sets, which helps us meet the DRIVER spec. * Fixed a bug where GetRecord returned records it shouldn't. FTP * This is an experiemental tool. It is not recommended you run this on a production server without chatting with us first. However it is pretty cool. Toolbox * addDocument now returns the numerical ID of the document rather than "OK". Input Workflow * Multiple fields can now contain <help> and <name> in their sub fields. * Can now use Subject input component with other fields in a workflow Database * The schema ID has been increased as we have standardised that all parts of a name field will be NULL or set, not a mixture. Upgrading the DB using epadmin will fix this scruffy data, but the resulting database structure will be still compatible with earlier 3.1.* releases, but if you downgrade you'll need to modify the "version" table back to 3.1.1 Other * Whitespace now auto-stripped from DOIs & Pubmed IDs. * Fixed issue in encoding paths for documents with subdirectories. * Fixed autocomplete javascript under HTTPS.


You need to run epadmin upgrade to tidy an issue with the database tables. This will not preclude downgrading to earlier 3.1.x versions (but you would need to modify the VERSION table)
