VuFind Developers Call Minutes: November 21, 2017
Attending: Leila Gonzales, Chris Hallberg, Demian Katz, Claas Kazzer, Jochen Lienhard, Ere Maijala, Tod Olson
1. Development Updates
The release went out on schedule; no problems reported yet. Upgrade is recommended if you're using 4.1 already – changes are minor and address some bugs that users might notice.
2. Development Planning
5.0 Roadmap Progress
Record Driver Hierarchy Refactoring
This has been merged to master.
ServiceManager v3 Upgrade
PR #1067 is now in a fully functional state (though more testing would be justified). However, it cannot be merged until three Zend Framework bugs are fixed – Demian has opened pull requests for all of them and is now waiting for merging and new releases.
Suggestions for next priorities from the roadmap are encouraged.
Image Metadata API
Front End Updates
Browse Handler Optimizations
Tod is in the process of developing a test to help with debugging the problems.
3. Institutional Home
4. Other Topics?
The 5.0 release date was briefly discussed – too early to set, but probably Spring or Summer 2018.
Chris is currently working on ILS drivers; there was some discussion of FOLIO, though no major news yet – we hope to have a more mature version to test against early next year.
National Library of Finland is rolling out a new theme soon, which features a repositioned active filter list (below the search box). This change was based on usability studies. May be a change worth considering in 5.0.
The next call will be Tuesday, December 5, 2017 at 9am Eastern Standard Time (14:00 GMT).
