The first feature-complete preview release of VuFind 2.0 has been completed. Built using Zend Framework, this is the first step in moving VuFind to a more modern architecture. The preview release demonstrates all of the existing VuFind 1.x functionality while also filling in several gaps (including a more full-featured mobile theme and more consistent treatment of Summon and WorldCat records). This release is NOT INTENDED FOR PRODUCTION USE, as the architecture is still under development and many implementation details are still subject to change. However, it should serve as a taste of things to come, and comments/bug reports are welcome.
The next step of VuFind 2 development is to update the code for compatibility with the new Zend Framework 2.0 coming out later this summer. The update project, which will culminate in a 2.0beta release, is currently underway in the SourceForge project's Git repository.
