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.
