2. Development Planning

2.3 Release

The release was made successfully. There will likely be a 2.3.1 release with minor bug fixes/language file expansions in a month or two.

Call Number Normalization

No news this week.

Bootstrap 3

No news on Bootstrap 3 due to Chris' vacation. Some minor fixes, but no major problems.

Still in progress: LESS import behavior issues.

Need to discuss: end of life of the old Bootstrap 2 theme; Demian will email vufind-tech with details in the near future.

PHP 5.4 upgrade

CARLI is still using PHP 5.3; Demian will move forward cautiously and continue to inquire about people's situations before making the leap.

3. 2014 VuFind Summit

CARLI will be represented at the Summit. This may be an opportunity to finalize the consortialize pull request if it's not already merged by then.

4. Other Topics?

None this week.

Next Call

The next call will be Tuesday, September 2, 2014 at 10am Eastern Daylight Time (14:00 GMT).
