SESAR² version 8.0.0 is released

On July 22nd, we released a new version of SESAR². The release includes a number of new features, enhancements, and improvements.

We have added a new feature which allows you to login into your MySESAR Dashboard using your ORCiD.  If you have not already, please add your ORCiD ID to your MySESAR profile to use this new feature. We will continue to support GeoPass for shared accounts and for users who do not have ORCiDs. For more information, see our FAQ section on ORCiDs and MySESAR.  

To ensure quality of registered sample metadata, we have added a new feature where new users will need to request access to our Web Services. SESAR² curators will review metadata mapping with new users before permitting access to the Web Services.  Existing accounts do not need to undergo this review.

The release also includes a number of enhancements and bug fixes.  You can review the full list on the SESAR² Release Notes page.

If you have questions or comments about the new capabilities or SESAR² in general, please contact info@
