Emilda 1.1.0-RC1 has been released and is avaliable for download:
Below release notes for this release:
As it can be noticed, the project under the code name 'eLib' has been
renamed to Emilda. Emilda is from now on the official project name to be
used and referred to. (at least Oy Realnode Ab will understand if You
use eLib, but it is desired to start using Emilda)
The reason for changing from eLib to Emilda, is that eLib was too
general a name. There are far too many projects going under the name
'eLib', even a Finnish University project called 'FinnELib', which
caused great confusion amongst people querying on Emilda. Realnode Ltd.
has no official abbrevations that Emilda would stand for; it is
considered to be a word, without any deeper meaning. However, if You
come up with some clever abbrevations, plese share them with us.
Emilda has expanded from just being under Realnode Ltd. domains;
emilda.org and emilda.fi have been registered to the project, and Emilda
has been registered on SourceForge.net and Freshmeat.net. Currently
Emilda domains are redirects to the currently existsing information on
realnode.fi/com, but some sort of community is being planned for these
Also mailing lists have been renamed, so please re-subscribe to the
wanted lists. Emilda-annonce has also been added: a list for low-traffic
Now to the release 1.1.0-RC1:
This is the first release candidate, which in practice means that this
is generally how 1.1.0 will look like and operate: no big changes are
made anymore, unless anythin unexpected shows up. We fixes some small
errors in the book_delete page that, for some strage reason, did not
allow any books to be deleted, and some small fixes in book_edit &
book_info were also conducted.
We are aware of the fact that currently, fileds cannot contain the
character '&', since this will split the field at '&', and only show the
first part(s) (BUG: 0000117). This seems to be some kind of issue of the
XML-parsing of PHP, and since we did not find any intelligent solution
to this we postponed this to 1.2.0, where the entire MARC-display system
will be redesigned.
We encourage all to test and report problems on this release. We are
currently using this release at out 'project'-environment in a school in
Finland, with so far good results.
