Sufia 4.0.0 released

From Adam Wead:

It gives me great pleasure to formally announce the release of the Hydra gem Sufa, version 4.0.  This release marks the culmination of 5 months’ work of collaborative development with the members of Penn State’s Services and Solutions team and Digital Curation Experts (DCE).

This new version includes a complete redesign of Sufia’s user interface, based on user feedback and design studies conducted with the staff and faculty at Penn State University.  Sufia’s features now include:

  • Multiple file, or folder, upload
  • Flexible user- and group-based access controls
  • Transcoding of audio and video files
  • Generation and validation of identifiers
  • Fixity checking
  • Version control
  • Characterization of uploaded files
  • Forms for batch editing metadata
  • Faceted search and browse
  • Social media interaction
  • User profiles
  • User dashboard for file management
  • Highlighted files on profile
  • Sharing w/ groups and users
  • User notifications
  • Activity streams
  • Background jobs
  • Single-use links
  • Google Analytics for usage statistics
  • Integration w/ cloud storage providers
  • Google Scholar-specific metadata embedding
  • Schema.org microdata, Open Graph meta tags, and Twitter cards for rich snippets
  • User-managed collections for grouping files
  • Full-text indexing & searching
  • Responsive, fluid, Bootstrap 3-based UI
