IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT CONCERNING 3.2.x EOL
========================================================================
3.2.x has reached its EOL and is officialy unsupported at this point.
Releases beyond 3.2.10 are for security issues only and are not gauranteed.

Highlights of 3.2.11
======================

NOTE: This release is a security release. It is strongly recommended that users apply
this upgrade immediately to production systems. If you are installing a new system, please
use this version rather than earlier versions.

System Requirements
======================

    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.

Upgrades
======================

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.
