Text to go in the release notes:
This enhancement changes the 'New record' button when cataloguing. Before this change you needed to choose the framework - now it will use the default framework unless you select a different framework from the drop-down list. This makes it consistent with creating a new record using the 'New from Z39.50/SRU' button. NOTE: This is a change in default behavour that cataloguers may be used to.

Bug 28543: Clicking on 'New record' will use default framework

In biblio records cataloguing, clicking on 'New from z39.50/SRU' will run action with default framework.
Clicking on 'New record' should do the same.

Test plan :
1) Go to cataloguing home page
2) Check you see 'New record' with a sparator and then a caret
(like 'New from z39.50/SRU')
3) Click on button text
=> You go to record edition with default framework
4) Clik on caret
=> You see list of framworks

I like things to be consistent, so I like this enhancement.

However, I am not a cataloguer so was wondering:

- Is there a way to set what the default framework used is, for example books? (I couldn't see anything under Administration > Catalog > MARC bibliographic framework, or a system preference.)

- Will this cause any issues for cataloguers, as it is potentially a change in their default behavour?  For example, cause records to be catalogued by default using the default framework, rather than specific frameworks libraries have setup.
