Recommender sunset period

We first released our EPrints recommender (previously called ‘CORE Widget’) in April 2013 and since then, have made many improvements to it and our recommendation systems. We blogged about our most recent changes which you can read about here.

As a result, it means that we will stop supporting old versions of the recommender. If you installed the recommender on or before the 10th October 2016, you will need to upgrade.

Any old version of the recommender will cease to work on Monday 20th February 2016.

Waving goodbye to API v1

Back in March, we announced the beta release of the CORE API v2. This added new features such as searching via DOI and retrieving citations for full texts.

This new API should be more reliable and have a higher quality metadata output compared to the old version.

Over the next few months, we aim to finalise the API v2 and finally close access to v1. The scheduled date of the v1 switch off is Monday, 25th April 2016. 

We hope that most users have already had an opportunity to test v2 of the API but if not, we suggest that you check out the documentation here.
