We are upgrading to Koha 3.10.5 on Saturday night (May 11). If you’re interested in reading the release notes for the 3.10 version releases, see this section on the Koha community website. A nice PDF document was put together detailing the major enhancements in 3.10.0.
Additionally, here are some highlighted features/bugs from the 3.10 upgrade that we have found in testing, including patron search changes, a local hold check-in bug, a few cataloging menu changes (and options to avoid!), and report changes. After the upgrade, please let us know if you notice any additional changes/bugs/features worth highlighting and we’ll add them to this document and the post online.
Patron Search Changes (from Patrons section):
3.10 patron search:
New Search Option in patron search
Local Hold checkin bug
Local Hold checkins at non-home library: triggering holds unexpectedly for wrong patrons. See this community bug for more information. We are continuing to look into an explanation and resolution of this issue.
When starting a new record from the cataloging module, if you’re immediately selecting the framework, note that Standard framework is now at the bottom, when creating a new record from cataloging module:
However, when importing in new record and changing the frameworks, it’s still the same menu as in previous versions:
Edit Menu on Records: Please do not use the highlighted options in the image below (The Edit items in batch; delete items in batch; delete all items) if they are still present after the upgrade. We are in the process of getting these options hidden. They allow you to change/delete ALL items on a single bib record, including items that are not your library’s!
Staging records for import:
One small change (just leave record type set to bibliographic)
Batch item modification results: don’t do anything to the check boxes:
The organization of reports will be changing after the upgrade, and they will be much
easier to find: we’ll now be able to internally group reports by categories! The categorization will be implemented after the upgrade and more information will be provided after it is set up.
