New features

REST api

  • [17006] Add route to change patron’s password

Sponsored by Municipal Libray Ceska Trebova

  • [22132] Add Basic authentication to the REST API

This adds http BASIC authentication as an optional auth method to the RESTful APIs. This greatly aids developers when developing against our APIs.

Command-line Utilities

To ease multi-tenant sites maintenance, several handy scripts were introduced. For handling SIP servers, 3 scripts were introduced: koha-start-sip, koha-stop-sip and koha-enable-sip.
This patch introduces a new script, koha-sip, that unifies those actions regarding SIP servers on a per instance base, through the use of option switches.
18.11 Note: The introduction of this script does NOT remove the koha-%-sip versions at this time and the scripts can be used interchangeably until one upgrades to 19.05 where the koha-%-sip versions are officially removed.

Pakistan: Two-Day National Workshop on Koha Operational and Administrative Skills

by Furrukh Hussain Zai

The Pakistan Library Association (PLA) is the Registered National Representative Body of the Librarians in Pakistan since March 1957. PLA is responsible to look after the interest of the professional librarians and to work for the development and improvement of libraries both in formal and informal sectors of education and research. In 2015, PLA has started the Koha Implementation Program (PLA’s KIP) and implemented the Koha-ILS in 20 institutions of Pakistan at free of cost.

In 2018, PLA noted that the community required a comprehensive training that’s may strengthen them on the operational & administrative skills of this greatest innovation in an effective manner and to make them a Koha Expert Librarian (we call them a Koha Dinosaur) as most of the past pieces of training were based on how to install it and an overviews of the basic features. Therefore, the Pakistan Library Association (PLA) Sindh branch has conducted a two-day National workshop on Koha-ILS operational & administrative skills in partnership with Affinity Library and Commecs College, Karachi as on January 26-27, 2019.

It was the first advanced level, hands-on workshop that’s explored all the operational and administrative aspects of the Koha-ILS including, the installation, module management, and effective use of tools and administration, along with allied technologies such as MARC21, RDA, Responsive Interface Design, SQL Reports, jQuery, and with lots of readymade scripts, templates and tips.

Prof. Dr. Syed Farhat Hussain (Professor Department of Library & Information Science, University of Karachi and President Pakistan Library Association) distributed the certificates among the participants with Cdr. (Retd) Tanveer Ahmed, TI (Guest of Honor), Anil Zafar (Organizer), and Furrukh Hussain Zai (Key Resource Person).

Koha 18.11.02 release

The Koha community is proud to announce the release of 18.11.02.

This is a maintenance release and contains 4 enhancements, 20 bugfixes.

Koha 18.11.02 can be downloaded from:

Installation instructions can be found at:

  • Koha Wiki
  • OR in the INSTALL files that come in the tarball

Enhancements

Architecture, internals, and plumbing

  • [21912] Koha::Objects->search lacks tests

Authentication

  • [21547] Use set_password in opac-passwd and remove sub goodkey

Architectural enhancement backported to 18.11.x series to aid future backports. There should be no noticeable effects for the end user.

I18N/L10N

  • [21789] Example usage of I18N Template::Toolkit plugin

Test Suite

  • [21817] Mock userenv should be a t::lib::Mocks method

Test suite enhancement backported to 18.11.x series to aid future backports. There should be no noticeable effects for the end user.

Critical bugs fixed

Acquisitions

  • [21605] Cannot create EDI account

Architecture, internals, and plumbing

  • [22052] DeleteExpiredOpacRegistrations should skip bad borrowers

Circulation

  • [21915] Add a way to automatically reconcile balance for patrons

Sponsored by ByWater Solutions

In the past, if a patron had any credit existing on their account (newly added, or pre-existing), if debts were present then the credit balance would always be immediately applied to the debt. This functionality was inadvertently removed during refactoring efforts which debuted in 16.11.
This patch adds code to restore the functionality and allows it to be optionally applied to the system via a new system preference, AccountAutoReconcile.
Note: The new preference defaults to the post 16.11 behaviour, if you wish to restore the 16.11 functionality then you will need to update the preference after the upgrade.

  • [21928] CircAutoPrintQuickSlip ‘clear’ is not working
  • [22020] Configure Columns for Patron Issues checkin hides renewal

OPAC

  • [22030] OverDrive requires configuration for field passed as username

REST api
