The Debian packages are usually available within days after the release.

On 27 September 2021 Jonathan Druart, on behalf of the whole Koha release team, was announcing this synchronised release of the four Koha revisions, saying: “As they contain security bug fixes we suggest you upgrade all the Koha instances you are in charge of as soon as possible. Let us know if you have any questions.”

And these are the 6 security issues fixed by these revisions:

Monthly community meeting

On 1 September 2021 Martin Renvoize wrote:

We had our monthly general meeting today, as usual, hosted on IRC. Attendance has been very low for a while now and we mooted the idea of dropping it from our schedule and instead just having perhaps two meetings a year, one for Kohacon votes and a second for a broader annual general meeting should anyone want to raise any points in that formal setting.

The next meeting is scheduled for 13th October 2021 at 1400 UTC where we will vote on the new reduced format.

We’re open to new idea’s at any time and I’d be happy to try a video meeting or something if people would prefer. But at this point, we’re not discussing much and I don’t know if we’re missing peoples views or people just don’t have many or they have other ways of communicating with the community at large.
