Version 2.1.3

Released: June 29, 2016

This is a bug-fix release and all users are encouraged to upgrade.


Temporary files cleanup

When uploading PDF files that had been OCRed by previous software, the text parser backend that uses Poppler, would leave behind some temporary files in the /tmp folder. The issue has been resolved and from the fix a test mixin system check has been devised that will identify places in the codebase with similar behaviors, reducing the recurrence of similar issues in the future.
