Koha 1.3.0 has been released.  This release marks the beginning of public 
development and testing of the MARC compliant Koha we've been Looking forward 
to.  As the 1.3 releases stabilize and reach feature completion, they will 
become Koha 1.4.

This is an alpha quality release only.  *DO NOT ATTEMPT TO
USE IT IN PRODUCTION SYSTEMS*  It may cause data corruption or loss, it may 
confuse patrons, it may cause books to refile themselves in strange places.  
*IT SHOULD BE USED FOR TESTING ONLY*.  (I hope that's clear enough.)  If you 
are want to use Koha in a production setting, please stick with the stable 1.2 
release until the 1.3 series stabilizes enough for us to create Koha 1.4.0.

Significant new features in this release include:
   * Data is stored natively in a MARC based format.
   * Multiple flavors of MARC are supported.
   * Enhanced API supports both the new MARC format and the older
     Koha specific format.

Please note though, that from a users perspective, this release should look 
just like a 1.2 series release.  All of the work so far has been in redesigning 
the data format and extending the API.  User visible changes will be included 
once the infrastructure has stabilized.

It is also important to note that the simple acquisition system is currently 
broken.  *DO NOT EVEN THINK ABOUT USING IT*  The full acquisition system works
