Dear IPT users,

A new version of the IPT has been released, version 2.5.0.

This version addresses 81 issues.  A full list of all changes is available on GitHub[1], but the new or improved features include:

• A fresher-looking user interface, which should still be familiar to existing users

• The user manual has been converted from the GitHub Wiki to AsciiDoctor/Antora, and is now published here: https://ipt.gbif.org/manual/ .  The move has allowed GBIF's worldwide Spanish-speaking community to translate the manual; their work is mostly done.

• The "double log in" bug is fixed

• Source data files can now be downloaded by a resource manager

• Auto-publishing can now be set to specific, future dates

• Archive mode can be limited to a set number of old archives to retain

• A new health/troubleshooting page reports common system problems, like running out of disk space or incorrect filesystem permissions

• The administration contact (for forgotten passwords) is now configurable

• The initial setup is improved to ensure a correct configuration

• Database (JDBC) drivers have been updated

• A URL can now be used as a data source

Upgrade and installation instructions are in the new manual [2].  Please remember to check your data directory backup is working before starting the upgrade!

Thanks to all the translators, testers and users who helped with this release,
