DKAN v1.13 Officially Released

We’re excited to announce the official release of DKAN v1.13, one of our largest and most impactful point releases ever.

Major improvements include:

  • Data Harvesting: there is now a Harvester with a full UI, to support setting up automated data harvests without any coding required.
  • API improvements: there is now a DKAN Dataset REST API, and the DKAN Datastore API now supports complex query requests from contents within the Datastore, as well as multiple queries in a single request.
  • Metadata Standards: DKAN now natively supports the European Union’s DCAT-AP metadata standard; the Federal Extras module is also now part of DKAN Core, enabling DKAN to support US Project Open Data metadata standards out of the box, including form validation for same.
  • Data Previews: now support JSON, geojson, XML, ArcGIS REST, WMS, images, PDF, and ZIP data formats, as well as better support for previewing Data Resources that are hosted remotely.
  • Site Administrators: site administrators now have greatly expanded powers, including adding Pages, assigning Roles, better customizing DKAN’s theme, and much more.
