A major cleanup of the data handling code was done in this version thanks to the work of Nicolas Steenlant and Vitali Peil.
This version contains much cleaner models to store and index records. If you have written Perl extensions to version 1.1.3 or
earlier, please be aware that methods to acces the metadata assets via the Helper class have been deprecatd. The preferred way to
access publication, user, project, research_group and department information in Perl code is which the construct below:

   use LibreCat qw(publication);

   my $rec = publication->get(‘12345’);
