Translations new/updated in 3.2.6
Changes since 3.0:
* The minimum version of Perl required is now 5.8.8.
* There are a number of new Perl module dependencies.
Run ./koha_perl_deps.pl -u -m to get a list of
any new modules to install during upgrade.
The structure of the acquisitions tables have changed significantly
from 3.0.x. In particular, the budget hierarchy is quite different.
During an upgrade, a new database table is created called fundmapping
that contains a record of how budgets were mapped. It is strongly
recommended that users of Koha 3.0.x acquisitions carefully review
the results of the upgrade before resuming ordering in Koha 3.2.x.
As of Koha 3.2, the Koha manual is now maintained in DocBook. The
home page for Koha documentation is
