DSpace application would not exist without the hard work and support of
the community. Thank you to the many developers who have worked very
hard to deliver all the new features and improvements.
Also thanks to the users who provided input and feedback on the
development, as well those who participated in the testathons.
We especially would like to thank the 3.0 Release Team: Sands Fish (Release Coordinator) from MIT, Hardy Pottinger from University of Missouri, Robin Taylor from EDINA/University of Edinburgh, and Ivan Masár (aka helix84). Finally, we would like to thank Tim Donohue of DuraSpace for ensuring
that DSpace 3.0 went off without a hitch.

release and beyond!
