2013 Evergreen Hack-A-Way

Two weeks ago I had the privilege of attending the Evergreen Hack-a-Way, a mini-conference of the Evergreen development community developers and other technical staff from all over North America.

The staff client memory leak was one of the main topics of discussion.  As the PINES libraries know, these leaks are under active investigation by Equinox at GPLS's behest, and they, along with other issues have brought the question of the future of the staff client to the fore.
