The program consists of cataloging (for handling adding/editing/deleting/searching of materials), circulation (so the librarian can handle user related management items), and the webpac module (where the World searches the catalog of your library). The program also has an import export feature, and strictly follows the USMARC standard for adding materials.

Bas writes: "New in this release is a version of MarcXmlWriter that supports XSLT processing using any JAXP compliant XSLT processor (like SAXON or Xalan) and a RecordHandler interface to support complex conversion routines using MARC record objects.
Added to the site is a tutorial about writing MARC to XML conversion programs using the James API and SAX2 events.
The James API provides a sequential model to access a collection of MARC bibliographic records in tape format. The goal of James is to provide a generic Application Programming Interface (API) for records that conform to the MARC standard.
James (Java MARC Events) is written in Java and published under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation. Downloads and additional information, including the tutorial and Javadoc documentation, can be found at www.bpeters.com."

Changes: This version is in the form of a WebPAC module. The Import MARC record function was added, which will let you add new bibliographic data to your database. There is both a Post-nuke and stand-alone version available."

It is based on the wonderful MRBS (Meeting Room Booking System) and is designed to mediate access to public stations in libraries." The live systems look great, congrats Art!
Prospero 2.0 builds upon the success of previous version has grown to become a self-contained Internet Document Delivery (IDD) system. As an IDD client, Prospero 2.0 allows libraries to use the Internet to exchange high quality ILL documents. As in all previous versions, Prospero 2.0 still allows direct to patron delivery.
Built on the same protocols and specifications on which Ariel was built, Prospero 2.0 can send and receive documents not only from other Prospero workstations, but also from Ariel. Together, Prospero and Ariel create the foundation of a developing Internet Document Delivery (IDD) network.
Prospero 2.0 also supports: basic firewall support by proxy, SMTP server authentication, and a basic scanned image editor. For a list of features, a FAQ, or to download Prospero 2.0 please visit the Prospero site.
from the eprints site: "EPrints 2 is strictly internationalised with all metadata being stored as unicode and every phrase used to interact with users collected into an XML "phrase file" which may be translated. To save duplicated effort, later versions will bundle configurations for languages other than English."
from GZigZag-announce: "GZigZag 0.6.2 has been released. This is an update to the 0.6 stable series. It supersedes the 0.6.1 release. We recommend that all users of GZigZag use a stable version...." Looks like lots of additions and bugfixes, and one of these days it might become obviously useful for something. In the meantime it's still fun to play with.
from pyblio: "What's new? Improved Medline Query interface, added incremental search capability, small UI improvements, small fixes in the BibTeX and ISI format. You can get the source at the usual places."
