From Samantha Fritz, Interim Project and Community Manager, Islandora Foundation
 
Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CA  Islandora is pleased to announce that the upcoming 7.x-1.4 release is well underway!
 
Islandora 7.x-1.4 will see the return of Islandora Solr Views, as well as the addition of one new module, Islandora Video.js, in addition to a number of improvements to existing modules and tools.
 
This release would not be possible without help from our dedicated release team of volunteer developers, component managers, testers, and our 7.x-1.4 release manager, Nick Ruest. 
 
Timeline:
 
• Code freeze: September 15, 2014 at noon EST. If you have any features that you are working on that you would like to see in the 7.x-1.4, please get *all* pull requests in by that time.
• Release Candidate: September 26, 2014. All modules will be tagged 7.x-1.4RC1, and a virtual machine will be made available. Testers will look for any and all bugs, and QA any Jira tickets marked as 'Ready for Test'. If any subsequent release candidates are deemed necessary, they will be released in-between this date and the final release date.
• Release: October 31, 2014. All modules will be tagged as 7.x-1.4, a virtual machine will be made available, as well as updated release documentation. In addition, the Islandora Sandbox will be updated.
