It is with great pleasure that I announce the release of Koha 3.12.0, the latest stable release of the Koha open source integrated library system. Koha is the first free and open source software library automation package (ILS). Development is sponsored by libraries of varying types and sizes, volunteers, and support companies from around the world.
Koha 3.12.0 is a major release, with numerous new features, enhancements, and bugfixes. Koha 3.12.0 is released under the GNU General Public License version 3 or later. Since the release of Koha 3.10.0, the development team has added 1470 patches to Koha, comprising some 21 new features, 160 enhancements, and 440 bugfixes. The result, I am sure you will agree, is the best version of Koha yet.
Koha can be downloaded from http://download.koha-community.org/koha-3.12.00.tar.gz or—on apt-based Linux distributions—using .deb files from Koha’s apt repository at http://debian.koha-community.org/koha/. For installation documentation, see http://wiki.koha-community.org/wiki/Installation_Documentation or the INSTALL files in the tarball.
Illustrated Koha 3.12 release notes outlining some of the highlights of 3.12.0 are available, as are full release notes, which you can find below the fold.
