Little over a year after the launch of DSpace 1.7, it's great to see healthy uptake of this DSpace upgrade together with its flagship features Mirage and Discovery.
Mirage is a new theme for the XML User Interface. It offers enhanced performance, a clean new look and feel and easier customization.
Discovery is a faceted browse and search engine. By dynamically offering a selection of facets in the repository sidebar, related content becomes easier accessible for exploring end users.
Although both of these features are included in the standard download of DSpace 1.7.0 and 1.7.1, they need to be deliberately enabled.

As the original contributor of both Discovery and Mirage, @mire appreciates comments and suggestions for future development on these features.
