The Koha project has released Koha 1.2.0. This is a major upgrade of Koha, and represents the beginning of a series of releases geared at making Koha more stable, more featurful, and easier to install.

 

Its finally here!

Nearly a year since the last release, we have a new stable release of koha.

To grab you own copy, please go to www.sourceforge.net/projects/koha.

The main new features in this version are:

  • - Can search by dewey number
  • - Keyword Searches can be restricted by a dewey number
  • - Can restrict a catalogue search by a class of items
  • - Simple acquisitions module
  • - Deleting borrowers checks their accounts for reserves, current issues, and fines
  • - New catalogue maintenance section
  • - MARC importing from a file, and from z39.50

Main Bugfixes:

  • - Keyword searches are a lot faster
  • - Combined author and title search is now also searching series title
  • - Combined author and title search is now also searching series title
  • - Adding children and institutions works as advertised

There have been numerous little fixes and a lot of code clean up.

The structure of the tarball has changed to a more sensible layout, and the INSTALL document has been rewritten.

There is also now a installer script, as well as a functioning database update script.

All this should mean its the easiest Koha to install or upgrade yet.

The next release wont take nearly as long, 1.2.1 is well underway. Also keep your eyes open for the upcoming 1.4 series with full MARC compatability.
