 + 
 +Note that because of changes in the way Unicode is handled with Solr 3 vs. Solr 1.4, it will be necessary to reindex all data after this upgrade takes place.

 +Demian is still working on building the MyResearch area; he is currently in the process of reimplementing favorites as a custom SearchObject (for more consistency with other code).

 +Luke has added support for his expanded ILS driver functionality in the new jquerymobile theme, so holds/recalls/renewals are possible.

 +
 +Luke has run into problems with the behavior of the splitOnCaseChange parameter in the Solr schema -- case changes inside words can cause problems -- i.e. a search for "MoBile" won't match records with the word "mobile" in them.  Tuan ran into the same issue at York and solved it by turning off splitOnCaseChange in the query analyzer chain (which solves the problem but also negates some of the benefit of using splitOnCaseChange).  Demian and Luke tried changing the catenateWords settings and were able to find a solution that seemed to work in the Solr admin tool but it didn't actually seem to fix VuFind itself.  They will investigate further after updating to Solr 3.x.
 +
 +Filipe still plans to test and comment on Luke's feedback patch, but he hasn't had a chance yet.
 +
 +Tuan asked about the schedule for the release of VuFind 1.3 -- we can discuss that on the agenda of the next developers call since by then we will know more about the Solr 3 upgrade.
 +
 +Sean said that their Primo Central integration is being prepared -- he will report more on the next call.
 +
 +Luke will be presenting at an Ex Libris conference in the near future.
 +
 +Eoghan (via email) reported that Andornot is offering VuFind consulting services -- [[http://www.andornot.com/products/search-and-discovery-tools/vufind.aspx|more details]].
 +
 +Demian will also be presenting at a local conference next week on the subject of running VuFind on Amazon's S3 cloud service (which works surprisingly well).
