BEXIS 2.8.0

With this release we introduce the new user interface of BEXIS. Over the past 8 month we have been working hard with the user community and the designers from Kombinat Süd to make this happen. We believe the usability of the system has improved a lot, especially in terms of consistency and visual appearance. However, there is more in the pipe. We need easier worklflows, but those had to wait until the next release.

A first step in this direction is the re-designed metadata entry page within the dataset creation process. This comes with the heavily demanded functionality of editing exiting metadata.

In the security section a logged-in user is now able to edit his/her profile (My Account) including specifying a new password.

A note for system administrators and developers: most dependencies for BEXIS 2.8.0 have been upgraded (e.g. .NET 4.5.2, MVC 5.2.3, Telerik 2013.1.611). Please check the release notes.
