B-centre assessment round 17
Component Registry upgrade
The Component Registry has been upgraded, as well as the current version of the 1.2 toolkit. A change has been introduced that is technically affecting backwards compatibility but according to our assessment it should have no impact on any 'real world' application. The change consists of a modification of the namespace for 'cues for tools' in the component definition and profile schemas from http://www.clarin.eu/cmdi/cues/1 to http://www.clarin.eu/cmd/cues/1 (as per the CMDI 1.2 specification)
OAI harvest viewer availability issues resolved
We have resolved a long standing issue regarding the stability of the OAI harvest viewer. The issues caused the service’s interactive web front end, which provides an overview of recently harvested metadata records from CLARIN centres and other sources, to appear without showing any content at irregular intervals. We expect the Harvest Viewer to be available with much higher reliability from this point on.
