Hi Galen - I've been keeping an eye open for this release for Ubuntu 12.04 
LTS. After an 'update' I felt fairly comfortable as it showed 1.0.2, but 
digging deeper, I find:

me at hardy:/$ sudo apt-cache show libmarc-xml-perl
Package: libmarc-xml-perl
Version: 1.0.2-1koha1
Architecture: all
Maintainer: Robin Sheat <robin at catalyst.net.nz>
Package: libmarc-xml-perl
Priority: optional
Section: universe/perl
Installed-Size: 108
Maintainer: Ubuntu Developers <ubuntu-devel-discuss at lists.ubuntu.com>
Original-Maintainer: Debian Perl Group 
<pkg-perl-maintainers at lists.alioth.debian.org>
Architecture: all
Version: 0.92-1

Could you please advise on 1.0.2 versus 0.92-1 -- the devil is always in 
the details.

btw, it updated the sandbox seamlessly; as soon as I can find a cataloguer 
to "give it a whirl", I'll do the production box -- unless you can point me 
to any particular detail that would verify full functionality.

Many thanks and best regards -- Paul
