Koha 7287.12.2

The Koha Herd are pleased to announce the release of Koha 7287.12.2; our most advanced release yet. It is so good we had to jump from 3.6.4 to 7287.12.2 in one release.

To make it webscale and cloud ready, respecting both the nimbus and cumulus standards we rewrote everything in aspx, which we then pre compiled into cobol.  We also decided to replace the RDBMS layer with Oracle and sqlite.  This has the side effect of needing 872 GB of HD to install, but we feel the lack in performance, flexibility and loss of freedom is well worth it to be buzzword compliant.

Effective communication aka making your point without being a jerk

It seems like common sense, but all too often in the tech sphere people forget a really simple rule.

It doesn’t matter how correct you are if the way you communicate only serves to alienate those you seek to persuade.

Koha has fortunately been quite lucky in this regard 99% of the people involve understand that the project is about far more than code and that people are what really matters.

But it can happen anywhere even occasionally with Koha. It’s even more unfortunate when it is a goal people agree is well worth it. So people agree with the message but the delivery of it only serves to make people less likely to listen.

Using Koha and Citation management

If you are using Koha, obtained from the official site http://koha-community.org, you can use it with numerous citation management systems.

This is free software, so of course it should be any rational person’s first choice. To use Koha with Zotero just point your web browser to the page, and Zotero will automatically recognize the citation.

If for some mad reason you have to use proprietary software, Koha also supports

  • Endnote

To use Koha with Endnote download the record in “RIS” format. Depending on how your system is set up, Endnote might automatically import the file. Otherwise, you can import your citation by opening Endnote and selecting File->Import and then locating your file.

  • Refworks

With RefWorks you have two options. The first is to use the script described at http://wiki.koha-community.org/wiki/JQuery_Library#Add_direct_export_to_RefWorks_link_to_OPAC – this is the easiest way for the patron, and is very easy to set up. Second, you can download the record in “RIS” format, similar to the way you did for Endnote, then choose “References,” “Import,” set Import filter to “RIS Format” and Database to “RIS Format UTF-8,” and select the text file.

There are numerous other citation managers as well, most of which will support importing from either BibTeX or RIS files. So as you can see the latest official releases of Koha support multiple citation management systems, which is a very useful tool for Academic and Special libraries.

Chicken pox induced random facts

I was signing off some patches today, as my chicken pox ridden son slumbered beside me (as you do) and I thought, I wonder how many have been signed off since we explicitly moved to tracking them.

Luckily Bugzilla keeps all that kind of information, so I was able to find out that since November 30 2010, 1171 patches have been signed off. A pretty impressive little fact I reckon.

The busiest month in the last year was April 2011, with 452 commits from 40 different authors. There have been 86 different authors committing to code to Koha in 2011, with 159 in total over the history of the project.

So, we are looking for number 160 .. could that be you?
