New *Action Items*
[AI] {Gary} will send {Blair} proposed method signatures to support
browsing, and {Blair} will address it for performance issues.
I have sent the method signatures to blair.

[AI] {Gary} will share an email with the list giving an idea of how to
modify menu items based on who you are and which groups you belong to.
The UI customisation guide on the Wiki gives an overview: <> however, the url will change with the official release of Version 1.2.

Basically, subclass PrepareMenuAction and override the method:

protected boolean isValidMenuItem(Map item,GrouperSession grouperSession,HttpServletRequest request)

- put your logic first but if not returning false, delegate to the super class.

In order to have the UI use the PrepareMenuAction subclass you must override / replace the action config in struts-config.xml.

[AI] {Gary} will verify if there is an efficient way to default
particular tasks to start in the flat view.
I don`t think that displaying the flat view will be any more efficient than the hierarchical view the UI enumerates the same Groups for each view.

Shilen: would you compare the time for displaying the flat view - `Hide stem hierarchy and show your groups only` and the hierarchical view for a subject with few privileges.

Carry-over *Action Items*

[AI] {Tom} will link in the latest javadocs for the upcoming release.

[AI] {Tom} will email [Jessica} with highlights or other notables of the
new release.

[AI] {Ann and Jessica} will put together release announcement emails for
the -dev, -users, and mw-announce lists.

[AI] {Blair and Jessica} will update the Archives and News pages in the
