VuFind 1.3 Released

The latest version of VuFind has just been released. The new release includes several significant enhancements: A new "book bag" feature for shopping-cart-style bulk actions (save, email, export multiple records); an upgrade to Apache Solr 3.5; new optional search plug-ins (visual timelines, Google Maps integration and Europeana searches); enhanced RSS feeds that allow VuFind results to be easily shared with external services such as Elsevier's SciVerse platform; and improved Syndetics integration. The "blueprint" theme is now the default setting, encouraging users to take advantage of jQuery in VuFind. Additionally, several bug fixes and minor improvements have been incorporated. The new release can be downloaded at http://vufind.org .
