Dataverse 4.5.1 now available!

The main feature of this release is the restoration of the IP Groups functionality, which is an important step for several installations moving to Dataverse 4. Additional features include email verification, dynamic copyright in the page footer, and support for Piwik analytics.

#700 IP groups in Dataverse are a way to specify a certain IP address range so that permissions can be applied based on the user's location or the device used to access the application. This is useful for installations that want to allow traffic from certain networks.
#2170 Email verification encourages new users to confirm their account email address.
#2905 Dynamic copyright automatically keeps the copyright date current and allows installations to add information about their organization.
#3018 Piwik support provides an alternative to Google Analytics, that supports local collection and hosting of usage metrics.

Special thanks to Jeremy Richard from Sciences Po who contributed the Piwik support feature.
