- Newer modules including video and HTML content
- An overhauled configuration system with web-based administration interface
- A robust authentication system with support for many types of authentication authorities
- Authorization support to restrict access to content by user or group
- Many other small improvements to ease in customization
There are some parts of the project that are not present:
- Modules that have not been generalized are not included. Please refer to the Harvard Mobile Web Repository for modules that you do not find here. Some modules will eventually be generalized and folded into this project.
