I just wanted to add a note that the fix for the bug where batch edits could not be performed on copies with differing required statistical categories  has been tested and added to Evergreen. It will be available in the next Evergreen maintenance releases (3.1.2 and 3.0.8).

All –

I will have to strenuously agree with Diane on this one. If this is non-functional in the web version, it will be a no-go for us.

Good evening -

I know there is a bug report for not being able to edit the attributes of more than one item at a time in Webby but I can't find it. XUL allows that function. It is used by circ staff to change shelving locations and circulating library.We positively must have that function. I talked to several people at the conference about this bug and everyone told me that it isn't slated for squashing in any upcoming upgrade.

I know that we can use copy buckets to change attributes of more than one item at a time but that makes a simple task more complicated.

If I need to submit another bug report about this, let me know.

Thank you.

Hi All,

We had a discussion at the Evergreen conference hackfest about our plans for removing the XUL staff client from Evergreen, effective with the release of version 3.2.  I wanted to recap some of that here and open the door to any questions or concerns about the process.

The key point of discussion centered around ensuring the browser client is up to the task of replacing the XUL client for all users when the XUL client goes away.  (A number of cataloging bugs in particular stood out during the discussion).

Of special interest will be input from sites that are already using the browser client in production, but still have some staff using the XUL client, or any sites that delayed migration.  We need details on why they are unable to make the switch to the browser client.

To track these, I propose we once again make use of the Launchpad "webstaffblocker" tag to indicate which bugs we consider blockers for migrating away from the XUL client.  These bugs should of course also be marked as High priority.

We have a few such bugs already:


If you are aware of any bugs that should be added to this list, please add/update the bugs in Launchpad.  Of course, we can't plan when we'll find bugs, but getting the ones we know about solidified sooner than later helps ensure we can address them during the 3.2 development cycle.

When determining whether a bug should be a blocker, a good rule of thumb is that the bug describes a feature or work flow that's regularly performed by staff in the XUL client that either has no analog in the browser client or requires an untenable number of extra steps in the browser client to accomplish.

Please feel free to add anything I missed from the discussion or reply with questions, etc.
