This email only affects those of you using DOI or EZID directly with your IPT.
The next release of the IPT will be prepared to accommodate recent changes in the DataCite API who have deprecated their public API.
In addition we are aware that EZID have reduced their capabilities with respect to DOIs. We are not aware of anyone using EZID as an identity service for ARKs.
We therefore propose to remove EZID capabilities from the IPT 2.4 release as we are not aware that it is in use by anyone.
If you are using EZID with your IPT can you please let me know asap and elaborate on which identifier scheme you are using so we can reconsider?
