Please note there are a few novelties:

SPF extended with Switzerland

Switzerland has joined CLARIN as of January 2023. Therefore all Swiss identity providers have been added to the CLARIN Service Provider Federation. Researchers from Switzerland can now use their institutional credentials to access password-protected CLARIN services.

New CLARIN Identity Provider release

Today's upgrade of the CLARIN Identity Provider went well. Besides a faster user interface there are no functional changes for CLARIN account users.

New Switchboard release

We have released a new version of the Switchboard (2.4.2). This is mostly a maintenance version which addresses some dependency vulnerabilities and updates core packages. We are also introducing an experimental preflight API call, which aims to provide a fast mechanism to ask the Switchboard how many tools match a certain resource, without having to load the full Switchboard page or popup. 

DH Course Registry November 2022 release

Please see the release notes for the details.

The CLARIN matomo instance has been upgraded to 4.13.3, see the changelogs for details.
