Koha 3.4.x Release Notes


Several librarians have come to me and said that the release notes are great, but they don’t understand them. So I thought I’d enhance the release notes for Koha 3.4 and 3.4.1 with links to the related manual pages (where applicable). Hopefully this will help you find the new features in the newest releases of Koha.
