Adds some simple enhancements to the Latest News plugin. You can specify a headline and link for each news item. Also uses has_role to determine whether plugin can be used (rather than checking usertype).


Requires the Latest News 1.0 plugin http://files.eprints.org/141/


Install Latest News 1.0 and apply patch. Issue following SQL to store headline and link in news table: ALTER TABLE news ADD COLUMN title TEXT; ALTER TABLE news ADD COLUMN url TEXT;
