What's New in InPort 5.3.6

Copy from Parent and Copy from Cat ID support has been added to the Data Set Information section.

Notice on File Type Deprecation Schedule

In Release 5.3.1, the Distribution Information File Type field was deprecated and replaced by the Distribution Format field. Existing File Type information remained in the metadata editor as a read-only field to give time for metadata authors to migrate to the new field.

In the original deprecation schedule, we planned to remove the File Type field from the UI in April 2024. However, we have decided to postpone this action, due to plans currently being formulated at the NOAA and Fisheries data governance level on updated data documentation requirements and guidance. Once these plans have been finalized, we will align the deprecation schedule so that metadata authors can more efficiently update their records.
