The Evergreen community is pleased to announce two maintenance releases of Evergreen 3.0.2 and 2.12.8.

Evergreen 3.0.2 has the following changes improving on Evergreen 3.0.1:

  • Copy templates created in XUL Holdings Maintenance will now be automatically converted and displayed in the web staff client’s volume/copy editor.
  • The list of report templates now includes a column indicating whether the template was originally created in the XUL staff client or the web staff client; staff need to know this since report templates created in one interface cannot be edited in the other.
  • Call number prefixes and suffixes are now displayed in various grids in the web staff client.
  • Many patron fields have been redacted from the web staff client’s patron and record holds grids, leaving patron name, username, and ID.

  • The patron summary in the web staff client now correctly displays primary and secondary ID values.

  • Fixes a bug that resulted in catalog searches that specify a location limit returning incorrect results.

  • Fixes a bug where certain queries on copies used in the public catalog could be very slow.
  • Fixes a bug place a hold request in the public catalog could result in “forgetting” the type and library of the user’s previous search.
