VuFind Release 5.0.1: Library Resource portal

  • Users can view their circulation history in “My Account” (when supported by the ILS and enabled in the configuration). This is disabled by default for privacy reasons. See pull request #1031 and getMyTransactionHistory in the ILS driver spec for implementation details.
  • Users may now delete their own accounts through the “Profile” page (when the new account_deletion setting is turned on; this is disabled by default). See pull request #1105 for details.
  • User session data may now be encrypted by turning on the secure setting in the [Session] section of config.ini (see pull request #1200).
  • Last login date and method are now stored in the database to assist with user management.
  • The Channels interface has been significantly improved, with bug fixes and a more streamlined look and feel.
  • New ILS-driven channel providers: new items, recently returned items, trending items.
  • The content of the search home page (facet lists, ILS status warnings, etc.) is now much more configurable and easier to customize through the introduction of a new Content Block plugin mechanism.
  • Geographic functionality now uses Leaflet instead of OpenLayers and has some richer functionality, including better representation of search results and the ability to choose custom base maps.
