VuFind® Newsletter: July, 2022

Highlights / Executive Summary

July development was largely focused on completing the VuFind® 8.1 release, which came out on schedule. Additionally, further progress was made on remaining issues scheduled for 9.0. A compatibility issue was discovered between VuFind® and OpenSSL 3.0, which is being included in many new Linux distributions; a workaround has been discovered (see VUFIND-1563), but further work will need to be done to ensure ongoing support of appropriate encryption in VuFind®.

The Project Management Committee has continued work on developing the Registered Service Provider Program and has also begun planning to improve maintenance/currency of the documentation.

The 2022 Virtual VuFind® Summit schedule has been finalized, and registration remains open. Please consider joining the VuFind® community on September 7-8 for the event!
