Main Page > Release Notes for Current DLXS Release


[edit] General Information

TextClass is substantially identical to release 13 except for bug fixes as noted below. ImageClass provides new image viewing functionality. FindaidClass improves handling of the EAD DTD and includes subject browsing. BibClass is unchanged and is being de-emphasized.

Release 14 is comprised of:

[edit] Known Problems

  • None

[edit] Database Installation Notes

MySQL is the supported database type. In order to run DLXS you will need to have a MySQL server installed. Sample data is delivered in the form of a MySQL dump file which can be directly imported into a MySQL database. The database upgrade script (upgrade_6_7) operates only on a MySQL database. These issues are documented in detail in the installation instructions and the upgrade instructions.

[edit] New and Changed Functionality

[edit] XPAT

  • No changes.

[edit] Lib

    • IE needs escaped return login url parameter to be the last cgi param. So now it is.
    • Implementation of session stored return login url. Ran into a problem with long URLs in IE, so had to do this.
    • removed setting of utf8flag for data out of utf8 mysql table
    • Added StoreFieldValue routine. It allows middleware to update a Collmgr field value for a single collection and for the current user (production, release, dev/user). The benefit of doing it in Collsinfo is that the cio knows about the current user, making it easy to update only the current user's row.
    • emit full path to main XML template for <TemplateName> element
    • changed TemplateName to TemplatePath
    • added random id generation for bookbagdb table. not using auto increment anymore. avoiding potential replication conflicts.
    • changed related to the upgrade of dbd::mysql. basically, stop throwing the utf8 switch on data coming out of mysql.
    • adding quoting of table names, though not exhaustively.
    • fixed a bug. optimizeTable would in some cases alter column to be varchar with not enough chars.
    • Changed GetCookieDomain to use $cgi->virtual_host() instead of $ENV{HTTP_HOST} because the env variable includes the port but $cgi->virtual_host does not. Port number should not be specified in cookie domains.
    • Changed SoftASSERT so that it forwards the return value from ASSERT.
    • new feedback cgi code. generalized for use outside of just mdp.
    • remove duplicate code
    • Add RemoveXMLPi for Kwic processing
    • Added a simple routine called DebugOut that prints a string within a div (class=debug). Optionally include the name of the sub/method being debugged just by throwing a switch.
    • Moved binmode statement out of dlpsutils (where it messed up image class, probably due to double encoding) and put it in collmgr where needed most.
    • Implementation of session stored return login url. Ran into a problem with long URLs in IE, so had to do this.
    • Added sub CarryOverNeededAuthRetParams. (All other params were being dropped when processing a key_authret param, making Athens auth fail.)
    • no longer deleting key_authret from session once used, because in rare cases it is used again.
    • make no referring URL "Assertion Fail Report" not send email
  • ItemView.cfg
    • add note about pdfopt
    • add defaults for jpg as a image format source type
    • Add code to set and get the $targetImageFormat so that the DeliverFileHandler knows what format to deliver. It has a different signature that asks for the format but the handlers are called generaiclly and do not receive the format as a parameter form the caller so ...
    • Set defaultpageview if no view is set in ValidityChecks
    • fix path to cached image to include host when mode is remote
  • LibGlobals.cfg
    • new feedback cgi code. generalized for use outside of just mdp.
    • $LibVersion::VERSION = 4.1201; $LibVersion::DLXS_CDROM = '14';
    • 14
    • Allow string refs for handlers that are subroutines as has well as those that are object emthods
    • Removed StripPIPairContents etc. obsolete
    • add GetPIs
    • m,,gs to get all the error messages back from xpat
    • url for Atom/Rss
    • changed TemplateName to TemplatePath
    • changed TemplateName to TemplatePath
    • removed setting of utf8flag for browse list data.
    • regex will strip complicated DOCTYPE declarations
    • moved to $DLXSROOT/bin/f/findaid instead of ../lib since this is findaid specific
  • BookBag/
    • added new method for checking ownership of bookbag
  • BookBagItem/
    • Use maintitle, mainauthor, mainheader to add to bookbag
  • DLXSApp/
    • added podBindings sub
    • fix for debug=xsltwrite without remote user. Now using REMOTE_USER if defined or $ENV{'DLPS_DEV'} if its defined and not 1 otherwise using "anonymous"
  • DLXSClass/
    • Removed line that was stripping out spaces in idno in RestrictBaseQuery. This was causing kwic view queries where the <eadid> contained a space to fail.

    • Explicitly specify the format of the config file.
    • Add method to return config file name.
  • Stats/
    • Add method delete_expired_counter_requests()

  • Stats/
    • State that COUNTER reports are available starting in May 2007.
    • Big rewrite to display aggregate stats rows. Also combined some code and got rid of the extra.

    • Add an additional message to COUNTER request feedback.
    • Correct name of DR1.
    • Don't provide DR1 yet - its not ready.
    • Show COUNTER section in form if user is logged in but IP address is unrecognized.
    • Slight modification: If we know the user's institution, but they do not have stats for a given collection and time period, default to 0 for all counts so a row is still displayed for them in the results page with zeros in all fields.
  • Stats/
    • Get 'public' attribute from config files to determine if a collection is public or not.
    • Allow upper- or lower-case for report types in config file.
  • Stats/Map/
    • Constructor now takes Stats::Config object.
  • Stats/Map/Titles/
    • Temporarily set $ENV{'HTTP_HOST'} to $$self{'host'}, which is set from the query "SELECT DISTINCT host FROM Collection WHERE userid = 'production' and collid = ..." in case $ENV{'HTTP_HOST'} is not set.

    • Now must pass Stats::Config object to Stats::Map::Auth constructor.
    • Return undef if Resource object is not created in the 'match_collid_to_resource()' method - which, in this case, happened because I had removed the collid from the stats config.
    • Clean up Database Report 1 a bit.
  • Stats/Reports/COUNTER/
    • Die if location of COUNTER reports cannot be obtained from the config file.
    • Pass Stats::Config object to COUNTER creation methods rather than creating other Stats::Config files within these methods.
    • Include support for COUNTER Database Report 1.

    • Fix bug in day() method that returns the current day of the month (it was erroneously adding 1).
  • Stats/Tools/
    • Big modification to allow unrecognized users to see public collections (aggregate stats only).
    • Bug fix: empty the list of coll ids previously built before grabbing all coll ids in the cache, because we don't want to include any that aren't in the cache (but were, say, in the AUTHZD_COLL variable).
    • When doing regular expression with coll IDs, use /^..$/ to get the exact coll ID.
    • Get rid of 'aggregate_only' concept. Return an array of all coll ids for which the user is an admin.

    • Fix use of utf8::upgrade for collection name
    • Slight modification: If we know the user's institution, but they do not have stats for a given collection and time period, default to 0 for all counts so a row is still displayed for them in the results page with zeros in all fields.

[edit] ImageClass

[edit] CGI/Middleware

Known Problems

  • None known so far.


  • Image Viewing
    • Ajax based zooming and panning of imagery. Works with JPEG2000 and MrSID.
    • getimage-idx cgi has been completely rewritten and is backward compatible with previous version.
    • XML, XSL, CSS, and Javascript for entry/image view have changed significantly.
    • Running mediaprep with purge=1 is recommended, but not required. It now stores thumbnail dimentions in the ImageClassMediaFiles table and uses them for drawing zooming reference visuals on the thumbnail adjacent to zoomable images. Image Class now requires ImageMagick and PerlMagick to be installed.
  • Portfolios
    • Longer descriptions are allowed in custom sorting display.
    • Multiple owners/editors.
    • Renaming.
    • Added documentation for end-users.
    • Fixed bug that kept anonymous user from opening their own session based portfolio.
    • Portfolio (BookBag) IDs are now generated randomly to avoid potential database replication problems.
  • Searching/Browsing
    • Relevance ranking is now an option for Image Class search results. To activate simply add "relevance" to the Collmgr field "sortflds" (first list value should be "none" and second "relevance"). Sorting of results by relevance will be the default for the collection once configured. Relevance ranking is not used when searching multiple collections.
    • Searching has been packaged and can be subclassed. A subclass for integrating search results from the ARTstor XML web service is included and can be used by ARTstor members. Support for other services, databases or database schemas can be added by subclassing the Perl module.
    • Browsing of newly added or update media items is now possible. Requires reloading metadata for the collection. In Collmgr set brwsadds to "on", add "m_flm:::Recently Added/Updated" to field_labels, and add "m_flm" to sortflds, dfltentryflds, and dfltresentryflds.
    • All collections are selected by default in cross collection search. This is now a configurable option at the class level in imageclass.cfg.
  • Collection Size Calculation
    • Collection size counts are now stored, by image-idx, in Collmgr. See help text for new Collmgr fields "recordcount" and "mediacount".

[edit] Data Preparation


  • It is possible to configure a development mysql server for loading metadata. script will use production mysql server to get information from Collmgr, ImageClassMediaFiles, etc. but will populate new tables on development server. This is not generally necessary, but can help to reduce production server load with very large collections (75,000+ records).
  • mediaprep script now stores pixel dimensions of thumbnail images in ImageClassMediaFiles table. Pixel dimensions for thumbnails now appear in the relevant XML output of the middleware cgi (image-idx).

[edit] BibClass


    • added size as a common param
    • add size to SID if we have one
    • BibClassPerlFilters::CollsFilter had a minor bug in the sql query used to select the collection name from the Collection table causing it to not always select the right row because it wasn't consdering the value of the DLPS_DEV environment variable. It now correctly selects the production, release, or user row.
    • change openurl sub to be 1.0
    • change wording on openurl link
    • added support for icon in openurl links
  • bibclass.cfg
    • change openurl server

Prep scripts

Data prep scripts have been reorganized and renamed.

  • New functionality for Makefile and
  • New script to setup new collections

New prep script: setup_newcoll

$DLXSROOT/bin/f/findaid/setup_newcoll can be used to set up directories for new collections. For example, to set up the workshopfa collection based on samplefa (Assuming your $DLXSROOT variable is set)run this command:

 $DLXSROOT/bin/f/findaid/setup_newcoll -c workshopfa  -s $DLXSROOT/prep/s/samplefa/data 

More information on the setup_newcoll script can be found by clicking here or invoking the man page:

$DLXSROOT/bin/f/findaid/setup_newcoll --man

New options for

The $DLXSROOT/bin/s/samplefa/ script now takes several new arguments.

  ./ --man   will give details

of particular interest is the -i inputfilelist option which allows you to specify a file containing the full paths to the finding aids you wish to index. This option can be used instead of the previous default behavior which was to recursively search the data directory and index all files in that directory.

Changes to Makefile

Addition of these new targets:

Same as prepdocs but uses the -i inputfilelist to and by default reads a file $DLXSROOT/prep/c/collection/list_of_eads.
convenience target for use in conjunction with prepdocslist that does all the make steps except for the make prepdocs
convenience method that runs all 3 indexing steps

Changes to prep scripts

Moved generic bin files to f/findaid
Makefile modified has new options
Renamed files
	samplefa.text.inp  to samplefa.ead2002.dcl
	samplefa.xml.inp to samplefa.concat.ead.dcl
Added/moved from bin/s/samplefa

Replaced about 36 instances of <xsl:value-of select="."/> with <xsl:apply-templates select="*|text()"/> If value-of select gets highlighted text in the context node: "text<HIGHLIGHT>text</HIGHLIGHT>text text" it will ignore the <HIGHLIGHT> elemnts and just render all the text. On the other hand the apply-templates "*" will match the <HIGHLIGHT> element and trigger the appropriate highlighting template and the text() nodes will get passed to the template that just outputs the text
    • Fixed code in template match=unittitle mode=SimpleUnittitle because foreach was messing with context Also change code for handling notes/scopeconent in match=C01|c02... because it was an xsl:choose, but notes and scopecontent are not mutually exclusive
    • Changed code for handling notes/scopeconent in match=C01|c02... now both did/note and note and did/scopecontent and scopecontent will be rendered
    • fixed bug in template match="list" where there was a foreach and then value-of select *|text() that needed to be value-of select="."
    • space before unitdate value
    • title styling
    • optional labels for additional descriptive material
    • hide sorting title
    • sponsor
    • Restored ADD to full-text view
    • abstracts in dids
    • Change template for index mode= add so it doesn't produce 2 copies of any <head> text. Key is to limit the apply templates after we already processed the head not to process the head again: <xsl:apply-templates select="*[not(self::head)]"/>


    • No longer used for samplefa (replaced by Also it contains bhl specific code. For bhl use the copy in $DLXSROOT/bin/b/bhlead which is in cvs.
    • Moved here from bin/s/samplefa No collection-specific customization These should work on any EAD that conforms to the ead2002.dtd
    • No longer used for findaids, since all findaids should be utf8 encoded
  • setup_newcoll
    • New script to set up directories ./setup_newcoll --man for details
    • This library file is now used by and (through $DLXSROOT/bin/s/samplefa/ correctly remove multiple line DOCTYPE declarations and any entity references contained within them. It is a replacement for the one-line perl program previously used by those two programs.
    • Removed outdated file that worked on sgml files. FindaidClass now exclusively xml
    • Moved here from bin/s/samplefa No collection-specific customization Thise should work on any EAD that conforms to the ead2002.dtd


    • remove FormatGuideFrame() obsolete since the change to XML/XSL

  • No changes.

[edit] METS Pageturner and Collection Builder

  • Continuing development work in Pageturner. New application: Collection Builder allows users to add items to a personal collection via widgets in Pageturner. These applications are not part of DLXS. They use a different code base mainly under DLXSROOT/{web,bin,cgi}/m/mdp and DLXSROOT/lib/App. Stub routines are required in Pageturner to abstract the database connections and an installation of Solr/Lucene is required to support the collection search in Collection Builder. The user interface makes extensive use of Yahoo User Interfacen toolkit (YUI) functionality.

[edit] SRU

  • Added fielded searching to query -- not yet Level 1 or 2, though
