      I'm especially intersted in:
      - New OPAC interface
      - Member Interface for allowing Bookings
      - Member Interface for checking account
      - Subjects link to search
      - Publisher links to search

      And all the modules that help to interface obiblio with internet and to help a user to search into the biblio catalog as with a search engine.
      If anyone is working on that I'm glad to collaborate. Write to me at ollari@libero.it

        This will be in 1.0.  That feature is already pretty-much done.

        I'm trying to raise money so that I can take enough time off of other work to finish 1.0.  If anyone is interested in helping, contact me privately.

      I would like to add:

      A table where we could enter holiday dates and offset return due dates by a + or - number of days.  This would allow this to be created for dates in the future eg: handle Christmas holidays and New years in June.

      Ability to override programmed number of loan days to accommodate custom due dates.  Usefull when someone needs a book for a slightly longer period.
