LUNA 7.5 is a major release that supports our user community to selectively grow the content available to their user base in LUNA by introducing Collection Sharing. LUNA administrators can now add public collections from outside sources to their own LUNA instance and to share public collections with others who also have a LUNA instance. The release also includes a variety of minor features and bug fixes.
New Features in LUNA 7.5
- Introduced Collection Sharing to the LUNA toolset. Phase I enables public collections with a IIIF Activity stream to be added to any LUNA instance. Allows LUNA administrators to choose relevant content that's publicly available and add it to their own LUNA instance. Public collections will become available on the lunacommons.org website as clients upgrade to v7.5. Read more about Sharing here.
- *Note: If you would like to share your collections, it’s required to be on HTTPS.
- Implemented a new feature that allows LUNA administrators to categorize collections in the LUNA Viewer. Read more about Collection Categories.
- Implemented a checkbox in the Collection Manager for public collections to not be shared. By default, all public collections are set for sharing.
- Flipped the media summary box in Viewer to always display on the left.
- Increased limit to 4,000 characters for the Viewer's collection description in the Collection Manager
- Implemented an option to allow removal of the domain name when creating an iframe in the Viewer's Detail View, so that the browser only uses the proxy's domain in the iframe and does not cause a blank image panel.

- Added a feature to place Media Summary fields as Meta-descriptions at the top of the Detail View page in the Viewer.
- Implemented a way to protect LUNA Viewer's login page from Clickjacking.
