Buongiorno a tutti,
giro alla lista questa iniziativa dei committer di DSpace in 
occasione del prossimo rilascio di una versione intermedia fra la 
1.5.2 (rilasciata a cura del CILEA) e la 2.0 (prevista per il 2010). 
Si tratta in sostanza di un questionario con una sola domanda: cosa 
vorreste che facesse il prossimo DSpace? Si possono dare 3 risposte.

Scade il 28 aprile, percio' vi consiglio di affrettarvi per fare 
sentire la voce degli utenti italiani di DSpace!!

Saluti a tutti,
Susanna Mornati

As you'll have seen from recent emails, the DSpace community has now 
released version 1.5.2 of the DSpace software. It has many new 
features, some enhancements to current features, and some bug fixes. 
Many of you will also know that a small team of developers have been 
working on DSpace version 2.0 which will bring with it many essential 
architectural enhancements to ensure that DSpace continues to fulfil 
the needs of the user community over the coming years. DSpace 2.0 is 
likely to be released early in 2010.

In the mean time, the DSpace committers have decided to start working 
on DSpace version 1.6. By moving to 1.6 (rather than 1.5.3) we can 
add new features that require changes to underlying DSpace database. 
We can't tell you just yet what new features will be in version 1.6 
because we haven't decided! And that is where you come in...

We'd like you to tell us which three features you would like to see 
in version 1.6. To help you do this, we have created an online survey 
at http://dspacesurvey.info/. We know nobody likes to be bombarded 
with surveys, so we've kept this one really short. In fact, it asks 
only one question:

"What should be in DSpace version 1.6?"

The survey has three boxes to enable you to tell us what your top 
three new features would be. We can then look at all the survey 
responses to help decide where we should devote our development 
effort. We'll put all the commonly requested features into JIRA 
(http://jira.dspace.org/) to enable further commenting and voting. As 
always, if you want to develop your own new features, we'd love to 
work with you to get those features included provided that they are 
in scope, or if you want to work with us on the new features that the 
community votes for, please get in touch! The DSpace community relies 
on developers donating their time and expertise to help improve the 
software. If you want to join in, get in touch at the dspace-devel email list.

But for now, what are you waiting for? Fill in the survey... 

(Please complete the survey by the 28th of April as we'll close it then)
