Evergreen 3.03 and 2.12.9 released

The Evergreen community is pleased to announce two maintenance releases of Evergreen 3.0.3 and 2.12.9.

Evergreen 3.0.3 has the following changes improving on Evergreen 3.0.2:

  • Fixes several issues related to the display of located URIs and records with bib sources in search results.
  • Setting opac_visible to false for a copy location group now hides only the location group itself, rather than also hiding every single copy in the group.
  • Fixes a bug that prevented the copy editor from displaying the fine level and loan duration fields.
  • The “Edit Items” grid action in the Item Status interface will now open in the combined volume/copy editor in batch. This makes the behavior consistent with the “Edit Selected Items” grid action in the copy buckets interface.
  • Staff members are now required to choose a billing type when creating a bill on a user account.
  • The Web client now provides staff users with an alert and option to override when an item with the Lost and Paid status is checked in.
  • Fixes a bug where the Web client offline circ interface was not able to set its working location.
  • Fixes an issue that prevented the ADMIN_COPY_TAG permission from being granted.
  • The MARC editor in the Web staff client now presents bib sources in alphabetical order.
  • Both circulation and grocery bills are now printed when a staff user selects a patron account and clicks “Print Bills”.
  • Fixes an issue in the XUL serials interface the “Receive move/selected” action from succeeding.
  • Fixes a typo in the user password testing interface.

Please note that the upgrade script for 3.0.3 contains a post-transaction command to forcibly update the visibility attributes of all bibs that make use of Located URIs or bib sources. This script may take a while to run on large datasets. If it it running too long, it can be canceled, and administrators can use a psql command detailed in the Release Notes to perform the same action serially over time without blocking writes to bibs.

Evergreen 2.12.9 has a fix that installs NodeJs from source, allowing the web staff client to build without failure.
