ILS Support Updates

Demian and Chris met with Ex Libris representatives to discuss the state of the Alma driver. Everyone seems happy with it so far, but a few possible optimizations have been suggested to improve performance. These will be incorporated into a future release.

Browse Handler Optimizations

Tod has been devoting some time to this; the browse handler Java requirement has been raised to Java 8. More work will be forthcoming, and will be discussed in the pull requests on the handler.
