The release also includes specific bug fixes and small feature improvements prioritized by the Development Prioritization sub-team. There are also additionalperformance, backend and staff interface improvements from Hudson Molonglo developers James Bullen, Mark Triggs, and Payten Giles that derived from work HM did for Queensland State Archives as part of a larger project.
