New templating options
The modular structure of the Goobi viewer 1.2 gave users a range of layout options for their website material. As well as a series of new components for functions and displaying information, the Goobi viewer 1.2 provided additional options for integrating corporate design features and made a number of improvements in browser compatibility with mobile devices.
Reflecting the Goobi viewer’s international user base, the new version came with additional language support. From this point onwards, all the software would be supplied as standard in German, English and Spanish.
A series of changes were made in order to speed up the availability of digitised material, and these led to a general improvement in the application’s performance. The changes included a new caching mechanism for image generation.
Optimised presentation of full-text search hits
In view of the increasing popularity of OCR-based full-text searching, we made improvements to the presentation of results within the hit list. The new version also gave users the ability to configure highlighting options for full-text hits identified in their digitised material.
Improved RSS feed
The RSS feed was extended in order to display additional information about the source works.
Adjustments to the OAI interface
The OAL interface was updated in order to support greater compatibility.
