Show the parent record’s component parts in the detailed views
This enhancement adds the ‘ShowComponentParts’ system preference.
When enabled, a record with analytical records has a new tab below the record detail containing links to the component parts records.
The feature requires MaxComponentRecords to be set to limit the maximum number of attached records to display; if more records are found then a link to the ‘Show analytics’ search will appear at the bottom of the listed analytics.

 Clicking on ‘New record’ will use default framework
This enhancement changes the ‘New record’ button when cataloguing. Before this change you needed to choose the framework – now it will use the default framework unless you select a different framework from the drop-down list. This makes it consistent with creating a new record using the ‘New from Z39.50/SRU’ button.
NOTE: This is a change in default behavior that cataloguers may be used to.
In this Monday Minutes, we talk about how this change is helpful and uses less clicks:
 Check alert in cataloguing should be a static message
In this Monday Minutes, we talk about how this alert will be more useful!

This enhancement to the patron import tool lets you keep current values for selected fields for existing patrons – when the data is imported the selected fields are not overwritten.
