Thanks

Mom you were an inspiration as a library director and you challenged
us all to create the change that we wanted to see. May your words help
motivate librarians to be a community and be united in erasing limitations
for disseminating information.

Special thanks from the Release Manager

I’d like to thank everyone in the community, especially Kyle and JesseW (piano),
for never giving up and helping me through each step of this release! Hear! Hear!
I’d also like to thank TomĂĄs and Chris for assisting me as a first time RM and
showing me the ropes. Jonathan and Katrin your endless bug testing and QAing
is wonderful motivation for us all – Thank you so much for all you do!

To my lovely wife Sonja, for putting up with so many late nights
so I could push that last piece of code or test one last thing. Thank
you for being patient and volunteering so much of our time so we could
have an awesome release!!!
