We upgraded the server that runs omeka.middlebury.edu. This server is now using the Chef server configuration tool to manage settings so that we can ensure proper change management over its setup.

We’ve upgraded the Google Custom Search engine used on our Drupal sites to version 2 of their API, now that version 1 is no longer supported. A few styles were cleaned up, including removal of the double underlines for links in search results, but there should be no major changes with this upgrade. Please let us know if you experience issues with search on our Drupal sites.

- Creating a new website for the Middlebury Institute of International Studies.
- Building out the configuration of our CAS servers in Chef, which is a configuration management system. We have already completed this work for our Drupal, WordPress, MediaWiki, GO, Omeka, and the Course Catalog services.
