Dear all,

I've been making lots of changes in TapirLink during the last months. This
time, before releasing a new version I would like to know if there are any
beta testers willing to help. If there's anyone interested, please follow
these steps and then contact me with the results:

1- Install the latest TapirLink code:

a- If you want to test with an existing installation (installed with
Subversion), update you local copy (svn update) and, just in case, make a
backup of your "config" directory.

b- If you want to test with a new installation, check out the latest
TapirLink code from the following address using a Subversion client:


2- Check the configuration (admin/configurator.php):

a- When testing an existing installation, go through all configuration
sections of your resource to make sure there are no error messages or
missing configurations. You'll then need to save you mappings again (just
click on "save") to overwrite the capabilities template, and in some cases
(older installations) you'll also need to save your metadata again. You'll
always be warned in the front page of your resource when you need to
overwrite one of these templates.

b- When testing a new installation, just add a new resource and go through
all configuration steps.

3- Run tests:

Make sure your provider is accessible from outside and then run the
general test suite on it to see if there are any errors:


Many thanks!
