 ===== Highlights / Executive Summary ===== ===== Highlights / Executive Summary =====
  
 +With the 6.1 release due at the beginning of February, January was spent putting finishing touches on the release and preparing for work on changes for 7.0.
 +
 +The most significant development of the month was probably the release of [[https://​getlaminas.org/​|Laminas]],​ the successor to Zend Framework. Work is already well underway on bringing VuFind up to date with this new dependency, so it can be fully incorporated into VuFind 7. Fortunately,​ the changes are largely cosmetic, and good tools are available to help with migration, so this looks to be a smooth transition.
 +
 +January also saw VuFind'​s first appearance at the WOLFcon conference, held this year at Texas A&M. VuFind meetings at the conference focused on FOLIO integration and accessibility and were attended by a mix of VuFind veterans and new potential adopters.
