This release is focused on ingest upgrades, new import APIs, and infrastructure upgrades.
Stata 14, Stata 15, and .tsv files will now be ingested by Dataverse. New APIs will allow datasets with existing DOIs to be imported into Dataverse. Bootstrap and Primefaces, which power the Dataverse front end, have been updated.

For the complete list of issues, see the 4.9.2 milestone in Github.

For help with upgrading, installing, or general questions please email support@dataverse.org.

If your Dataverse is configured to use R, you need to install one extra R library (haven); Dataverse is now using it to export tabular datafiles as RData. Install the package with the following R command (for example):

install.packages("haven", repos="https://cloud.r-project.org/", lib="/usr/lib64/R/library" )

If you are upgrading from v4.x, you must upgrade to each intermediate version before installing this version.
