1. Development Updates

JIRA Tickets

  • VUFIND-1265 - This older ticket covering new Summon API features has been addressed, with enhancements to be included in release 5.1. (Some features are still not being used at the moment, until need arises to justify the work).
  • VUFIND-1290 - This ticket discusses the Solr limit warnings introduced in release 5.0; a solution has been documented on the Starting and Stopping Solr page.
  • VUFIND-1291 - This ticket reports some bugs related to list editing; they have been fixed and fixes will be included in 5.0.1.
  • VUFIND-1292, VUFIND-1293 - These tickets document some new Summon API features that could be used to build recommendation modules. Vote if you are interested.
  • VUFIND-1294, VUFIND-1295 - These tickets report some OAI-PMH-related bugs that have been fixed in time for the 5.0.1 release.
