[Koha] Seeking programmer: Patron Cards and Book labels: 3.06-- How are people printing them?

Sorry to but in here.....but I have a couple questions..

Is there a known issue with 3.0.6 and labels? ( I already have a nice process for creating labels, but was hoping to use the Koha built in tools) 
I ask this as I have been in the process of migrating from 2.29 to 3.0.6, but, from what I gather from this conversation, I may be better off going to 3.2?
Can I do an upgrade via git to 3.2 from 3.0.6  (any know dependencies that will need to be chased down?)

Hi David

If these are new Koha installs, I would strongly suggest installing from
either the debian packages, or the git master branch.

As Chris Nighswonger (who wrote the labels code) has said, it has been
totally rewritten for 3.2.0 (it's 3.0.6 btw) so you are much better off
installing that.

Quite a few libraries, including Horowhenua Library Trust the original
Koha library, are running what is very soon to be 3.2.0 in production.

So I would class that as a real alternative, and in fact a better alternative to
installing 3.0.6 and having some one off customised and not reusable
work done.
