The latest sprint resulted in several new outcomes: a metadata field, multiple documentation pages, a release of the Sidecar Images plugin, and a dockerized container for GeoBlacklight.

GeoBlacklight Community Sprint Recap, Winter 2022

The latest GeoBlacklight Community Sprint took place from February 14-25, 2022. Long time GeoBlacklight sprinters have noted that this was likely our most productive event and undoubtedly featured the most active participants. We had over a dozen participants representing Cornell, Harvard, Johns Hopkins University, Princeton, Stanford, UMass Amherst, and the University of Minnesota / Big Ten Academic Alliance. Moreover, five contributors made their very first code commits to GeoBlacklight during this event.

GeoBlacklight 2.0 is Here!

Developers from Princeton, NYU, Cornell, and the University of Minnesota participated in a two-week GeoBlacklight Winter Codesprint that resulted in a major new version, GeoBlacklight 2.0. This version is compatible with the latest release of the underlying framework, Blacklight 7, which itself includes several significant component upgrades for Bootstrap 4 and Rails 5.2 support.
