Hi Scott,

I'm not using 3.0 in production, but I have a couple of answers for you.

1.I know receipt templates will need to be recreated manually. Are there any other similar configuration-related gotchas?

We also have similar issues with copy templates and report templates. There are related bugs for each.

For copy templates - https://bugs.launchpad.net/evergreen/+bug/1691269 - Jason Boyer has submitted some code to make XUL copy templates available in the web client. It is not available in the core code yet. I haven't had a chance to look at it yet, but I know there are others who are looking at it.

For report templates - https://bugs.launchpad.net/evergreen/+bug/1642344 - if you want to clone existing report templates in the web client, you have to do so in an interface that is missing a lot of fields we may need to use in a report template. I do know there is an organization that has contracted with Equinox to create tech specs for allowing xul templates to be cloned in the standard reports template editor, but I expect it will take some time for that work to be done.
2.Can Serials and Acquisitions be used?

Acquisitions has been available in the web client since 2.12, and serials is newly-available in the web client in 3.0. However, I can't speak to how much use they've gotten in production. For acquisitions, the Dojo interfaces were ported over as is, so it should work about as well as it does in the old client. For either of these areas, though, I would say they have passed extensive user testing to get into the core software, but there are issues that probably won't be known until libraries start using it in production, as was the case when Holly tried checking in an issue. The sooner libraries start using it in production, the sooner those issues can be submitted to Launchpad and resolved.

Hi,

Is anyone using the web client in production against 3.0? If so, I have a few questions:

2.Can Serials and Acquisitions be used?

3.Have you discovered any serious problems?

Thank you,
