A lot is happening and a a few more people have started to contribute their time, skills and knowledge to push DSpace into the realm of reality.
Alice and elf-pavlik have continued working on DSpace, fixing a lot of issues and we moved the client to something almost usable. The UI will receive another major overhaul, targeting mobile usage on smaller screens with intuitive touch gestures instead.
