You can map items.itemcallnumber to a items tag/subfield from either the
Links - Koha MARC DB section (easy) or the Bibliographic Framework section(hard)
of the Admin module. Note that the plugin is something you can add later
to the Bibliographic Framework, but you still have to set up the mapping
or the itemcallnumber field won't show up in your items add/edit screen.

It could very well be. There were quite a few updates that didn't make

from CVS and replacing your current ones:



Let us know how it goes.
