Latest release – version 2.3.4, March 2017

Version history

This new version fixes a security vulnerability that was discovered in the Apache Struts web framework, which the IPT uses. This security vulnerability affects all IPT versions, including 2.3.3, therefore all users should plan to upgrade to this version immediately following the instructions in the Release Notes.

A description of the exciting new features added to the IPT in version 2.3.3 are described in this blog post. Additionally, please note that GBIF recently released a new set of Microsoft Excel templates for uploading data to the IPT. The new templates provide a simpler solution for capturing, formatting and uploading three types of GBIF data classes: sampling-event data, occurrence data, and checklist data. More information about these templates can be found in this news article.
