   * :!: Several templates have been rewritten to use the slot view helper instead of view variables, improving readability and extensibility;​ if you have extended these templates yourself, the code may need to be adjusted.

   * :!: Support for Amazon cover images and reviews has been removed; the ZendService\Amazon library has been deprecated, and there was insufficient demand to take the time to port the code to a new library. If you need Amazon support, please open a new [[https://​vufind.org/​jira|JIRA]] ticket.   * :!: Support for Amazon cover images and reviews has been removed; the ZendService\Amazon library has been deprecated, and there was insufficient demand to take the time to port the code to a new library.

   * :!: The sitemap generator now uses the search service instead of direct access to the Solr connector; to support this, the constructor signature of \VuFind\Sitemap\Generator has changed, and the service is now constructed using a factory instead of hard-coded controller logic. If you have customized any of this, adjustments may be needed; see [[https://​github.com/​vufind-org/​vufind/​pull/​1486|pull request #1486]].   * :!: The sitemap generator now uses the search service instead of direct access to the Solr connector; to support this, the constructor signature of \VuFind\Sitemap\Generator has changed, and the service is now constructed using a factory instead of hard-coded controller logic.

   * :!: Because score values are never used in core code (except when dumped out in non-MARC staff view tabs), the default field list retrieved from Solr has been changed from "​*,​score"​ to simply "​*"​. There is now a default_record_fields setting in searches.ini (and other equivalent Solr backend configurations) which can be used to customize the field list.
