To give our colleagues a better idea of what’s changed in our web applications each week, we’ll be preparing this quick list for publication each Friday. Not all of the details of each change are included below, but we’ll be happy to answer any questions you might have in the comments.
We use these posts to let you know about what we’ve already changed, but we understand that many of the people using our services would also like to know about changes before they happen. You can now subscribe to a mailing list where we discuss changes to systems, upgrades, and occasionally new features. The list is moderated by Joe who approves new subscriptions to ensure that only Middlebury personnel are receiving this information.
- Chrome users can now search the website using their voice. Click on the microphone icon in the search box and start speaking. The browser will try to figure out what you’re saying and search for it. As other browsers implement this feature it should automatically work in them as well.
- You can now +1 news stories.
- We’ve added the Feeds OAI-PMH Fetcher and Parser, which we’ll be using to aggregate content from the CONTENTdm Digital Collections at Middlebury into the website.
- Modules updated: monster_menus, media, rss_page.
