VuFind 5.1 Release Date

With the release of SolrMarc 3.2 and the completion of most of our open tickets, it seems realistic to schedule a VuFind 5.1 release for early in the new year. Demian proposed February 4, 2019, to allow time over January to finish open issues and collect translation strings.

2. Development Planning

ILS Support Updates

No news.

Browse Handler Optimizations

There has been significant discussion on vufind-browse-handler PR #23 and VUFIND-1314.

Selective Dissemination of Information (SDI)

Demian has not had time to work on this any further; we will try to have a longer discussion at the next meeting.

5.1 / 6.0 Roadmapping

Demian and Chris still need to find time to do a comprehensive update of the project board, but Demian has been focusing on cleaning up outstanding 5.1 issues so we can make a release – more work can be done once that slate is cleared.

3. Other Topics?

Next Call

The next call will be Tuesday, December 18, 2018 at 9am Eastern Standard Time (14:00 GMT).
