Koha is the first Open-Source Integrated Library System.                                                                           
Koha is a full-featured open-source ILS.

Apple users : it seems there is an annoying bug in Firefox, that you can                                                            have in librarian biblio search: only the first MARC field list is                                                                  available and the others can't be opened. The problem is described and                                                              fixed at
Changes 2.2.6 => 2.2.7                                                                                                             
- NEW z3950 client (for quick cataloguing) : it's based on ZOOM, and                                                                DOES NOT REQUIRE a daemon on the server. It has 2 majors consequences :                                                            
it should work well on MS-windows servers platforms and it's much easier                                                            to install : just install Koha, and you have it. Another improvement is                                                            
that you can select the servers you want to query. And, last but not                                                                least, it should be a little bit faster for single server searches.                                                                
- some packages dependancy during install where missing                                                                            
- biblios without any title will show "no title" as title, in the result                                                            list, making them clickables                                                                                                       
- for libraries with IndependantBranche=YES, the biblio can be deleted                                                              only if it has no items attached or the librarian is a superlibrarian.
This prevent a librarian from deleting a biblio with existing items in                                                              another branch.
