Stuart Lewis, DSpace 1.6 Community Release Manager, announced that the week-long DSpace 1.6 testathon ‘The Big Bug Hunt’ is underway. So far  9 bugs, ranging from inconsistencies in the documentation, bugs in the jspui and xmlui, and suggestions for improvements to email notifications have been reported. The more that are gathered, the better DSpace 1.6 will be.
Please join in with the testathon…
