Release 4.1.2

The release was made yesterday in response to a security issue in Solr (and to make a few other bug fixes available). See this commit for details of the workaround. A more permanent fix will be achieved when we upgrade to Solr 7.

2. Development Planning

5.0 Roadmap Progress

ServiceManager v3 Upgrade

Work continues on updating services in PR #1067. During the process, Demian discovered that the command line utilities were broken due to Zend refactoring; the issue has been corrected, but the entire zend-mvc-console module is now deprecated and should eventually be replaced with something that will be maintained long-term.

Solr 7

The SolrMarc fixes for Solr 7 support have been merged to master (and from there to PR #1082). Demian will resume work on the Solr upgrade after the Zend Framework updates are completed.

Image Metadata API

No one has had a chance to work on this for some time, so we will remove it from the agenda until it becomes a priority again.

Front End Updates

Nothing new, but Chris will review the pending pull requests today.

Browse Handler Optimizations

No updates this week.

Geographic Improvements

Leila has been making good progress on replacing OpenLayers with Leaflet for geographic displays. The eventual plan is to make this change in master. She also shared an example of this new code in action.

3. Institutional Home

No news.

4. Other Topics?

We welcomed Sebastian, a new developer taking on some of the work previously performed by André Lahmann.

Next Call

The next call will be Tuesday, February 13, 2018 at 9am Eastern Standard Time (14:00 GMT).
