OJS 2.4.6 has been released

March 17th, 2015 by  | 9 Comments

We are pleased to announce the release of OJS 2.4.6.

This release builds on the 2.4.5 release to collect the numerous minor fixes and tweaks that have since been completed. It adds numerous translation updates and several new features, including…

  • DOI exclusions
  • a PDF.js-based PDF viewer plugin
  • An email overhaul better conforming to Sender Protection Framework (SPF) rules
  • A multilingual-capable Custom Block Manager plugin

Our thanks go out to our partners and the many community translators and developers whose contributions make our work possible. Special thanks to Marco Tullney, who joined us last year as Translation Coordinator, for his work managing translations for this release.

    How can I make a translation to Portuguese-Brazil? The available translation has some problems, such as standardization.



  2. Nick Panes says:

    We are using 2.4.5 and based on the message when I full-screen a pdf the viewer seems to use PDF.js already? We would welcome something which made reading PDF’s using the viewer fully functional on tablets and phones – will this help with this issue?

  3. Ileana says:

    How can I add Online First on the web site? It enables finally revised articles to appear soon after their acceptance for publication, prior to their inclusion in the printed issue.
    Thank you/

    DOI exclusions: What do you mean by taht?

    • Karen says:

      Hi Jesper,

      This means that when you upload, for example, old content you can choose to not assign a doi (because they may already have one, etc).


  5. great, will it be enriched with costume templates?

    • Karen says:

      I assume you mean themes? 🙂

      No new themes have been added, since we’re working on OJS 3.0 which will be very different and have more theming options. A beta release is scheduled for mid-August 2015.
