BioCASe allows publishing several datasets with a single web service, all datasets sharing the same technical access point. With the latest version of the BioCASe Provider Software, administrators can restrict XML archiving to single datasets within a web service, allowing the selective creation or update of XML and DarwinCore Archives. This improves performance significantly, paving the way for frequent (automated) updates of archives for continuously or regularly updated datasets.
A new optional attribute "expires has been added to the Dataset Inventory. Based on a validity period set by the web service administrator, archives can be flagged automatically as outdated by the Provider Software. The release contains several fixes and other small changes; the complete list can be found in the version history.
