Hi everybody,

This version of Koha is the 4rd in the 2.0 "stable" series.
It does not mean that it has no bugs, but many libraries are using it and don't 
encounter unsolvable problems.
If you want to adopt Koha, please do, but you're warned that this release 
candidate version may still have some bugs and missing features.
If you test it and let us know about any we haven't seen yet, it will help us 
to fix them.

INSTALLATION

* Download the package
* tar xvfz koha-version.tar.gz
* cd koha-version
* ./installer.pl
* Follow the instructions


UPGRADE from previous 2.0.0preX or RCx version

* Download the package
* tar xvfz koha-version.tar.gz
* cd koha-version
* ./koha.upgrade
* Follow the instructions


UPGRADE from previous 1.2.x version

* Download the package
* tar xvfz koha-version.tar.gz
* cd koha-version
* ./koha.upgrade
* Follow the instructions
* Open a browser to Koha
* Go to Parameters >> Marc structure option and Koha-MARC links option.
* Modify default MARC structure to fit your needs
* Open a command-line on the koha server
* Enter :
cd /path/to/koha/misc
export PERL5LIB=/path/to/koha/modules
./koha2marc.pl
This "copies" the old DB to the new MARC one.
Now Koha 2.0.0RC4 is ready for you to test.

BUGS FIXED:
major :
* #293 : Error Issuing Book  - 1 (a very old one...)
* #605 : circulation.pl only shows one waiting item
* #661 : Set three variables for the circ template: gna, lost, and dbarred
* biblio deletion : in some cases, the biblio deletion was done on another 
biblio than the one asked.
* indicators where stored but not displayed in MARC editor/viewer.
* book shelves work again (note bookshelves are not avaible in OPAC. they will 
be added in 2.2.0)
minor :
* it's now impossible to create a basket for an inactive supplier (it's of 
course possible to change supplier datas and recieve a past order)
* removing "bulk", useless field, in admin/categorie.pl list (NOT in DB, in 
case someone uses the field)
* removing forced order in admin/thesaurus.pl => mySQL returns datas ordered by 
relevance in fulltext index if you don't force an order.
* Next borrower didn't work in circulation.pl (didn't return to borrower form)
* in circulation.pl, removing <br> to have all informations without sidebar on 
a 1024x768 screen.
* in circulation.pl, ODUES are in red in borrower header
* quoting correctly titles with a " inside, in MARC editor

IMPROVEMENTS:
* Minor translation & HTML fixes.
* Adding >>> in biblio editor to change tab.
* Adding a "print" link in MARCbiblio : popup a small windows, print the 
biblio, and closes. Nice for libraries still having a paper catalog.
