Dataverse 5.2

Dataverse 5.2 is now available!

Some highlights:

File Preview When Guestbooks or Terms Exist

Previously, file preview was only available when files were publicly downloadable. Now if a guestbook or terms (or both) are configured for the dataset, they will be shown in the Preview tab and once they are agreed to, the file preview will appear (#6919).

Preview Only External Tools

A new external tool type called "preview" has been added that prevents the tool from being displayed under "Explore Options" under the "Access File" button on the file landing page (#6919).

Dataset Page Edit Options Consolidation

As part of the continued effort to redesign the Dataset and File pages, some of the edit options for a file on the dataset page are being moved to a "kebab" to allow for better consistency and future scalability.

Google Cloud Archiver

Dataverse Bags can now be sent to a bucket in Google Cloud, including those in the "Coldline" storage class, which provides less expensive but slower access.
