Release 20.1 (14 September 2016)

Please be advised that ANDS Software Service Release 20.1 is scheduled for implementation on Wednesday 14 September 2016 between 9:00am to 11:00am AEST.

This service release implements a minor change to the Research Vocabularies Australia (RVA) service to fix a defect in the publication of vocabulary data that contains polyhierarchies or cycles.

As part of the implementation, the RVA server will be restarted and therefore the following services will not be available for a small amount of time while server comes back up:

  • RVA Portal
  • RDA (ANZSRC subject resolution)

A soft release in Demo will be implemented on Tuesday 13 September 2016 between 9:00am to 11:00am.

If you have any concern or questions about the release, please email
