Changes in Version 6.3.1

AMB-1383: The Mobile version of OpenOPAC shows the same loan status as the Desktop version. The Mobile version had incorrectly shown that loans were overdue

AMB-1384: LibraryThing for Free now displays covers. There was a problem in the last release where the covers were not showing even though the Dev key was entered in the parameters. This has now been resolved.

AMB-1381: OpenOPAC no longer show that reservations have expired as it appeared to patrons that the reservations were no longer were available, which was not often the case – the expiry date is more for internal use for Staff

AMB-1382: The Variable.less is no longer set to read-only during installation
