Dear IPT users,
The GBIF Secretariat is pleased to announce that a new release of the Integrated Publishing Toolkit (IPT v2.0.2) is now available for download from http://code.google.com/p/gbif-providertoolkit/.
The IPT version 2.0.2 addresses 44 reported issues (http://tinyurl.com/gbif-ipt-202
) from the previous version, and introduces a new Rich Text Format
(RTF) export for dataset metadata. The RTF view of the metadata is designed to allow IPT users to submit data papers to journals such as Pensoft Zookeys, for peer review and publishing. More information on the data paper concept can be found on http://www.gbif.org/communications/news-and-events/showsingle/article/new-incentive-for-biodiversity-data-publishing/
Users of previous versions of the IPT may choose to update to benefit from this new functionality and bug fixing. Updating an IPT 2.0.x installation involves simply replacing the previous .war file with the latest edition, and reusing the existing data directory. Please remember that it is good practice to keep backups of the data directory, and we advise that you make a backup before performing an update.
New users should follow the installation guidelines in the IPT documentation (http://code.google.com/p/gbif-providertoolkit/wiki/IPT2ManualNotes
Thank you once again for all your help in testing and contributing to the IPT!
With best regards,
Kyle, on behalf of the IPT development team and the GBIF Secretariat

I was intrigued by GBIF's announcement regarding publishing biodiversity data (http://bit.ly/m8hR6U), so I updated our IPT
(http://ipt.canadensys.net) to 2.0.2 and republished our dataset (http://ipt.canadensys.net/resource.do?r=vascan). Users can now export the Database of Vascular Plants of Canada metadata as RTF
(http://ipt.canadensys.net/rtf.do?r=vascan) and we could even submit this as a data paper to a Pensoft journal. Really cool and very easy!
Good job IPT team!
PS: When I find some time, I'm going to dig a bit deeper in the RTF file and see how the EML->RTF transition went.
