Escher: Omeka Plugin for Plugins
We are pleased to announce our new Omeka Plugin, “Escher”.
“Escher” is a convenience plugin that allows you to download and install plugins from the Omeka plugin directory from within your admin panel (no more FTP or WGET needed).
Each time you click the “Escher” menu link it checks the current plugins from the Omeka plugin directory so you will always get the latest available plugin.
The plugin can be downloaded via our Download Portal¬†or via GitHub.
We hope the plugin is useful to the Omeka community and welcome any feedback at email@example.com
Another Look at Cartaro
We have worked recently to optimize our cloud servers to deliver Cartaro more effectively.
The results have been quite positive, so much so that we are now able to offer higher resources while maintaining existing pricing.
If you tried our Cartaro hosting in the past and would like to have another look, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org¬†for a special coupon code for returning Cartaro customers.
DSpace at AcuGIS
When we began to offer DSpace at acugis.com, we did so with the same mission we made for ourselves with our GeoServer hosting; ¬† make the technology accessible and affordable to individuals as well as organizations of all sizes.
We are very pleased¬†to relate that response to our hosted DSpace plans has exceeded expectations and customer satisfaction has been excellent.
The overwhelming favourite for theme selection has been the responsive Mirage2 theme.
This theme requires some extra components, but the fast, responsive and easily customized theme has made Mirage2 more popular than XMLUI/Mirage and JSPUI combined.
In the weeks ahead, we will introduce new tools for DSpace to make updating and managing your instance even simpler and more powerful.
DSpace 6.x should soon be available for production (although no date has been given).
We look forward to making hosted DSpace as simple and feature-rich as possible.
