VuFind® Newsletter: December, 2022

Highlights / Executive Summary

December VuFind® development was curtailed somewhat by the winter holiday season, but there was still enough time to complete a significant amount of work, including some dependency updates (most significantly, an upgrade to Solr 9.1.0), several bug fixes, and one new feature: optional Google Tag Manager support. The Project Management Committee continued to make progress on open issues, including the documentation survey (which will be released the second week of January) and investigation of the possible use of a standard internationalization platform.
