    New Feature: "Protected Modes" During Spring Setup

    Librarians have asked multiple times if there is a way to "protect" their BookPoints application and keep it private during the spring setup phase.  Especially for libraries who have used the software before, sometimes eager readers visit the app while it's broken or full of test data.  We want to keep those users away from the site until the library chooses to launch it.

    We've made a few significant changes behind the scene which should make your spring setup phase more secure.
