Agenda

1. Development Updates

JIRA Tickets

  • VUFIND-95 - This ticket, about improving statistics module browser detection, was addressed at the 2.0 release and has just now been closed.
  • VUFIND-221 - Book cover caching behavior is now configurable.
  • VUFIND-339 - This ticket, suggesting more access points to the “create list” functionality, was resolved some time ago and was just now closed.
  • VUFIND-372 - Confirm dialogs have been standardized, as per this ticket.
  • VUFIND-563 - The Bootstrap theme now uses the <mark> tag for highlighting to better make use of the HTML5 standard.
  • VUFIND-598 - The indexing routine for obtaining normalized call numbers from this ticket has been committed; we still need to discuss how this should be used in relation to VUFIND-657, which adds Solr-native normalization.
  • VUFIND-939 - MyResearch menu reorganization has been completed.
  • VUFIND-940 - This cosmetic Bootstrap theme bug has been fixed.
  • VUFIND-942 - This ticket discusses improvements to .gitignore settings.
  • VUFIND-943 - This ticket proposes an improvement to the way install.php suggests symlink names for Apache configurations; the suggestion has been implemented.
  • VUFIND-944 - This ticket reports an advanced search bug that Demian is unable to reproduce; if anyone else can spot the problem, please comment here.
  • VUFIND-945 - This ticket fixes a small translation bug (committed).
  • VUFIND-946 - This ticket discusses the possibility of adding title-level hold links to search results.

Pull Requests

Some recent pull requests are related to tickets resolved above; they are not listed below to avoid redundancy.

  • #60 - This PR cleans up some inconsistent use of translation helpers in the view templates – merged.
  • #61 - This PR refactors the admin module and adds Luke's tag management functions – merged.
  • #62 - This PR makes place hold functionality more stable by fixing a problem with ILS drivers lacking getDefaultPickUpLocation() support.
  • #63 - This PR points out obsolete CVS $ID lines in some of the SolrMarc files; however, since SolrMarc files are loaded as vendor files from an external project, changing them here would not be helpful, and the PR has been closed without resolution.
  • #65 - This PR makes some improvements to searchspecs.yaml – ISBN/ISSN are now searched in AllFields, a small typo has been fixed, and it is possible to set up different settings for use with phrase searches vs. non-phrase searches. Merged.
