Right before everybody gets into the summer holiday mode, we have some big news to announce! The DSW version 3.0 has been recently launched and it brings some pretty cool innovative features that you should definitely try to bring your data management plans to another level. Also, the whole DSW team made a big effort to work on making the DSW user experience even better… Do you want to know how? Check all the news that this summer newsletter introduces and let us know what improvements you would like to see next time.

Release 3.0.0

We have released the third major version of DSW that switches from MongoDB as a data storage to PostgreSQL and S3. Also, RabbitMQ has been removed from our stack as well. These changes bring faster and mainly more reliable data access. Finally, it allows further optimizations in the future. Among this change, release 3.0 brings also features related to ELIXIR CONVERGE and RDMkit: KM preview with deep links and anonymous projects.

New User Guide

To make the user experience even better and easier especially for new DSW users we introduced a new user guide. Among other things, the DSW user guide is newly divided into sections dedicated to particular users like Researchers, Data Stewards, and Admins which should help to find the desired help faster and more effectively. 

ELIXIR CONVERGE: Integration with RDM

DSW is part of the ELIXIR CONVERGE project, where it offers its strengths as a DMP planning tool and a decision support system. As mentioned, release 3.0 came with the Knowledge Model preview feature that allows deep links to any question. These links will enable to bidirectionally link RDMkit and DSW, thus offering the community the strengths of both: content richness of the RDMkit and decision support of DSW.

Enjoy your summer! 🌞
