Today I activated the news section. The release information about 5.0.0 is not actual news (was released 2020-03-24) but I moved it from the Wiki to here today.
You find a list of all releases at the Roadmap. For a complete list of issues click on the version number. To see the issue description click on the issue number. Technical update information can be found in the application at install/upgrade/upgrade.md.
This is a major release with a lot of additions and changes.
The layout was completely overhauled with the Bootstrap framework.
One of the main reasons was a more responsive interface e.g. showing larger maps.
Although some things moved around the general workflow should be the same.
A first version of an API to make it easier for other application to use data from OpenAtlas directly was implemented.
More information can be found here: API
Archeologists can now enter human remains which work similar to finds.
Besides larger maps (depending on screen size) there are a few new features like switching from cluster to marker on the fly.
Also the display of archeological features was enhanced a lot.
In the model it is now shown which classes and properties are used how often. Because this reveals entered data the link was moved from the public menu to the index page seen after login.
Involvement dates were already checked against actor lifespan but now there are checks between event dates and involvement dates too.
You might want to run date checks again (Admin -> Check dates) to test your data for inconsistency
