What's New in InPort 5.2.0

Support for the International Standard Statistical Classification of Fishing Gear (ISSCFG) as a Controlled Instrument Keyword Thesaurus has been implemented in InPort.

Two new fields - Last Metadata Review Date and Metadata Review Frequency - have been added to the Catalog Details section.

Next Metadata Review Date is now derived from the Last Metadata Review Date plus the Metadata Review Frequency, and is no longer an editable field.

These review field changes are the first in a series of enhancements planned for InPort in the coming year to improve metrics, reports, and features in support of metadata update processes and practices.
