The features below are currently planned for the next release. However, some of these features may, for various reasons, not be included in this month's release, but rather in a future Alma release.
- DARA Updates - The manual/bulk dismissal of recommendations will be improved; you will be able to configure which roles are relevant for which DARA recommendations; a visual indication on DARA actions will display the number of open recommendations in the header.
- New Parameter for MD Import - The MD import will include a new parameter that controls whether local extensions will be added to records.
- Management of Community Zone Sets - In continuation to recent developments relating to the management of Community Zone sets, the January release will include the possibility to export a Community Zone set. In addition, API's will support working with Community Zone sets.
Digital Resource Management
- JP2000 Thumbnail Generation - Alma will automatically generate thumbnails for all the high resolution JPEG2000 images in your digital repository.
- Download original file in UV - The advanced Universal Viewer will provide the option to download the original high-resolution image, in addition to the existing option of a lower resolution derivative.
