Ack, let's not FUD the FUD

Koha is not releasing a special version. Liblime has a Software as a
Service product which is a fork of Koha containing unreleased code.
This is not Koha, it is a Liblime product.
There is Koha and then there is Liblime's product, there is no
"Community" Koha .. there is just Koha.
