The current release of CollectionSpace is Version 5.2

Highlights of the release include: reporting improvements – users can now add parameters to reports and run reports from the sidebar, search results, or the new tools menu; data updates – also in the tools menu, users can run “data updates” against entire groups of records; Anthropology profile – new fields to manage commingled groups and a new procedure for Osteology inventories; and updates to the Bonsai and Local History profiles to bring them up to date with our new user interface.

We would like to extend thanks to the community members who assisted with the QA process for this release; without your contributions, this release would not have been possible.
