Back to school time for IT staff at libraries usually involves a handful of new databases to configure and an updated version of EZproxy access and authentication software. This year is no different: the latest version (5.2) is now available. A snippet of the enhancements going on in this release:
- New directive for use in LDAP authentication, which allows the search filters that are used in login to also be used when reading attributes.
- EZproxy now allows vector notation in the user.txt file, to give III systems more flexibility with contact information.
- The sample config.txt updated to include more stanzas for OCLC resources, so it's easier and faster to add a new database to your configuration file.
- See the full list and get the details on all the 5.2 changes.
