VuFind Developers Call Minutes: May 7, 2019



1. Development Updates

JIRA Tickets

  • VUFIND-1331 - This ticket suggests using the WorldCat Recommender API to reintroduce some features lost by the retirement of OCLC's X-services.
  • VUFIND-1332 - This ticket reports a SolrMarc path problem; Demian is still trying to troubleshoot/reproduce the issue.
  • VUFIND-1333, VUFIND-1334 - These tickets track some needed improvements to account AJAX functionality beyond the fixes that went into release 5.1.1.

Pull Requests

  • #1365 - merged - Fix to mobile-sized behavior of account menu.
  • #1366 - merged - Fix to full text indexing with Tika in SolrMarc (resolving VUFIND-1330).
  • #1367 - in progress - Addition of database column tracking user's preferred language (prerequisite for SDI).

Release 5.1.1

This release went out on Monday, May 6.

2. Development Planning

Zend Framework / Laminas Transition

Format Determination

Demian wants to make the new format determination logic from #1209 the default behavior in VuFind 6.0.

Browse Handler Optimizations

Selective Dissemination of Information (SDI)

PHP Requirements

PHP 7.0 is now at end of life, and supporting it in VuFind is holding us back from taking advantage of some bug fixes in dependencies (for example: zend-code #158, which resolves some PHP warnings seen when running VuFind under PHP 7.3). Demian polled for objections to raising the minimum version requirement to PHP 7.1.

6.0 Roadmapping
