2 comments on “Koha 3.10.2 released
  1. Hello there!
    I am a Koha user, and lately, it has had a few issues ranging from not returning some search results on barcodes that have already been entered into the system, indexing problems – zebra problem I think, not attaching barcodes from one record to another, among others. What you advice me to do regarding this version of KOHA?

    Comments on this web site are not a good support channel. You can get help on the mailing list (http://koha-community.org/support/koha-mailing-lists/), on IRC (http://koha-community.org/get-involved/irc/) or through a support company (http://koha-community.org/support/paid-support/). What I can tell you is that the first piece of advice is going to be to upgrade. Koha 3.2 is now very old.
