What's New with 18.11

A Message from 18.11 Release Manager, Nick Clemens

This release (as always) is the work of many librarians, developers, and community members who donate their time and effort to the project. Their contributions help shape the release, and the project going forward. None of this would be possible without them, and my sincere thanks goes out to everyone who had a hand in the project.

You can read more about the 18.11 release on the Koha Community Website . The team at ByWater Solutions is working hard to go through the new release and prepare for training and upgrades for your system. We will begin the upgrade process in April/May to the Koha 18.11 release. We wanted to give you a sneak peak at some of the exciting features in this fabulous release so you can get ready for what is coming!
