Soprano Release Preview 15 January 2016

We’re pleased to announce that the next release of Soprano is now available for preview.

This release primarily delivers further development of the Acquisitions module. We are currently testing and refining the Acquisitions module in collaboration with a few libraries prior to making it generally available.

This release also includes:

  • Performance improvements
  • A fix to an issue when using IE11 where the borrower page becomes unresponsive after adding and removing many messages
  • Ensuring Manual Return Date is only available when the LDS version is one that supports it, i.e. LDS 2.0 or higher
  • Some styling adjustments to the Borrower and Item headers
  • A correction to the borrower icon on the reservation page

To preview this release
You can preview this release by inserting ‘-demo’ into your tenancy URL after the word ‘soprano’: https://soprano-demo.capita-libraries.co.uk/{your tenancy name}. Please remember that it accesses you live data.

Release to the live service
This version of Soprano will be released to the live service on Monday 25th January 2016.
