Prospero 1.2 Released

to excerpt Eric: "Features of 1.2 include: moved staff module from a Perl codebase to C codebase... This will enable us to make a future release an Ariel "plug-in"; added ability to attach pdf documents to an email message rather than posting them to the Web; added Alphabetical sorting to user list database; fixed bugs in TIFF/PDF conversion and other interface problems; [many] changes in server scripts." check it out yourself at the Prospero page at the Prior Health Sciences Library. Very cool; now I can reimplement it here.
