Version 0.6.0 is finally here -- late as usual. Its main new feature
is a completely rewritten reports system. The new system is much more
flexible, but just a bit more complicated to use. It also fixes a
security hole that was present in the old reports system.
There are still a number of known bugs, including a lot of text that
doesn't use the translation system. This has been an ongoing problem,
but we're hoping to fix it (and a bunch of other longstanding issues)
in the next major release.
>From 0.6.0 on, we intend to use a new numbering convention. During
the 0.5 cycle, we added features and made some major changes in point
releases. After having been annoyed at other projects that do this
(*cough* Linux *cough* MySQL *cough*) I've decided I don't want to be
guilty myself. So the third number in the version will change when we
make pure bugfix releases. Any feature changes will require a change
to one of the higher numbers.
I guess that's about it for now. You can download 0.6.0 here:

There are upgrade instructions in the install_unstructions.html file
included with the archive. The database update should be simple and
automatic. If you have installed custom reports, they'll have to be
converted manually, though.

My installation looks like 0.5.0 database version 0.4, it doesn't tell
me about the german version (but it's in german).
The anchor "#update" seems to tell me only what to do with the german
versions - what version have I?
(sounds strange - I know ...)
When I look with "phpMyAdmin" into the OpenBiblio database, it tells me
about 21 database tables inside. Is there at least one table which is
specific for your version or for the german version?
