New Single Sign On for Public Libraries, Reservation Improvements, and more…

This release brings a number of new features and improvements including:

  • Users can now start a reservation by clicking on the availability calendar for an item
  • Ability for Public Libraries to use the SIP2 protocol with passwords/PINs
    • Includes the ability for admins to manually sync users by searching for their Library Card Number
  • Updates to Membership Renewal Rules so that they always add one membership period from the renewal date rather than the previously expiration date
  • Prevent ability to set reservations too long (it was previously enforced, but required changing the dates)

…and a number of other bug fixes outlined below:
