VuFind Developers Call Minutes: August 14, 2018

Attending: Leila Gonzales, Chris Hallberg, Demian Katz, Claas Kazzer


1. Development Updates

JIRA Tickets

  • VUFIND-1296 - This is a SolrMarc-related support request and is likely not related to a bug; Demian will close it if no further communication is received.
  • VUFIND-1297 - This ticket tracks a limitation of VuFind's query-based OAI-PMH sets: currently, individually retrieved records do not correctly report their membership in such sets, because determining it is expensive. However, it may be worth adding the option to do this in the interest of standards compliance.
  • VUFIND-1298 - This ticket is another support request related to AlphaBrowse functionality; Demian will attempt to help troubleshoot to determine whether or not there is really a new bug here.

Pull Requests

  • #1221 - merged - CSRF-related bug fix for account deletion.
  • #1222 - in progress - Minor accessibility improvements.

Release 5.0.1

It's been nearly a month since the 5.0 release, and a couple of significant bugs have been fixed and some Zend Framework security releases have been made, so Demian is thinking about issuing 5.0.1 soon. He'd prefer to wait until the Java 9/10 compatibility issues in SolrMarc are resolved, but it may be worth saving that for 5.0.2 in the interest of dealing with the other problems more quickly. A release is likely in the next couple of weeks.
