2. Development Planning

VuFind w/ Docker

Ben Mosior is continuing to work on this; more news next time he reports in.

Image Metadata API Revisited

Still working on some geographic bug fixes before moving on to this.

Modularization and Theme Mixins

Demian created a proof of concept PR (#963) which at a glance seems to support Beluga's needs for distributing stand-alone components for augmenting VuFind. There is a to-do list on the PR which indicates some testing and tooling necessary to make this release-friendly.

Next ZF Version

No news.

Improved Use of Permissions

No news.

Solr 6

Ere has contributed some fixes that will make the eventual transition to 6.5.x easier.

Deprecation Progress

No news.

Wiki Documentation Improvements?

No news.

4.0 Release Progress

Working on finishing up the new theme and necessary changes to support it.

Front End Updates

Take a look at the recent front-end-related PRs and test/comment if time permits. It would be great to have more eyes on these before the 4.0 release.

Chris will work on documenting changes to help with upgrade/migration.

3. VuFind Usage Survey

Chris has posted results here.

4. Institutional Home

No major news, though there may be developments soon.
