BioStar v2.7.6 is going to be impressive for many customers with many bug fixes and features, especially those who are waiting for moving from BioStar 1 to BioStar 2.
Migration tool for converting from BioStar 1 to 2 is finally available with this new version.
Now, BioStar 1 customers can easily convert users and event logs into BioStar 2 DB using the migration tool.
You can find the tool under BioStar 2_Installed_folder\biostar-migration(eq. C:\Program Files\BioStar 2(x64)\biostar-migration). Please refer to the attached guidance.
