News and Questions

Koha Versioning

  • As things stand we have three branches:
    • rel_2_2 - stable, old-style MARC-in-SQL
    • dev-week - rel_2_2 codebase with Zebra support
    • head - new codebase, new features, but buggy, partial Zebra support
    • hdl_auth - for some authorities improvements. (based on 2_2)
  • We need to clarify our expectations about what versions will be released and what they should contain
  • status of the different versions.
