As of r1947, I have added browse
support to the Dewey branch mentioned below. As with other Dewey
features, this is disabled by default. It can be turned on using the "dewey"
setting in the [Browse] section of config.ini. Once enabled, it will show
up as the Call Number browse in the Browse/Home module of VuFind. If both
LC and Dewey call number browse options are enabled at the same time, the browse
module will label the options appropriately so users can choose between
them. Please take a look and let me know what you think.

Subject: Progress on Dewey Decimal support...
As recently promised on the vufind-general list, I have
created a new branch in Subversion to aid development of Dewey Decimal support
This is based on the current
trunk, and as of r1934, I have added basic support for indexing Dewey numbers
at ones, tens and hundreds levels. SolrMarc is currently reading call
numbers from 082 and 083 fields, but this is easily customized if you store
yours elsewhere. Also, since I expect that this branch will eventually
merge back into the trunk, things are configured with Dewey disabled by default
since I expect the majority of users will not be using these features.
However, to try them out, you can easily enable them by editing
import/marc_local.properties and web/conf/facets.ini.
I'm going to do more work today and next week to start
adding Dewey support to the Browse module -- I'll post again when this is ready
