VuFind Newsletter: December, 2020

Highlights / Executive Summary

December is usually a quiet month for the project due to holiday breaks in many parts of the world, and this was no exception. Nonetheless, there was some development activity (mostly minor bug fixes/improvements, but also some initial work on new features), as well as a couple of significant events: VuFind 7.0.2 was released, fixing some more bugs, and a video about XML Change Tracking and Email Alerts was recorded outside of the regular Community Call in response to a request.
