Check out what's new, the fixed issues and frequently asked questions about the latest release of Openbravo ERP. As always, you are encouraged to tell us what you think, by raising an issue in issues.openbravo.com or discussing it in the Open discussion forum.
- Dynamic Rebuild Window: The Rebuild Window that is shown when a module or Core update is applied has been changed. Now, if the new version of Openbravo you are updating to comes with new build processes (such as the Build Validations which we included in MP17), these new processes will be shown in the window as new steps. Additionally, as part of this project, we've made sure that when you upgrade to a newer version of Openbravo, the build itself depends only on the sources of the new version, thus improving the consistency and robustness of the upgrade process.
- Shipment extension points: Three new extension points has been created for the Shipment flow. Now there is no need to modify the Openbravo ERP core to extend the Shipment flow, in a module all the functionality can be developed and delivered. With these extension points you can for example using the processes "Create Shipments from Orders" or "Generate Shipments", leave the Shipments documents created in draft status. It also can be developed based on these new extension points a Picking and Packaging functionality as described in the Warehouse Picking Functional Specifications.
- "Purchase" Financial Invoices "Sales" Financial Invoices: End-user can register and issue and later on post purchase and sales invoices for a BP (vendor/customer) do not link to products/services but ledger accounts through "G/L items" flag as "Enable in Financial Invoices".
- Initial Client Setup : This project's objectives are:
- Implement all the logic in a java class (not extending HttpSecureAppServlet) so it can be called not only through user interface.
- Remove all xsql code, and re-write it using DAL
- Create a new dataset for the document types, so its creation is not hard-coded, but inserted as any other dataset.
- Because of previous feature, now in Initial Client Setup window, core will appear as a dataset to be applied. If applied, document types, sequences, etc. will be created for that client.
- 12683: Oracle build takes a lot of time (Note: enabling the fix for this problem requires a change in Openbravo.properties)
- 13572: Maintain and print stacktraces when calls to setAdminMode and restoreAdminMode are unbalanced
Check the complete fixed issues and API changes.
- A reference data item is present in Enterprise Module Management window, named Core, starting from MP19. It's very important that this dataset is not updated through Enterprise Module Management window. Click here for further information.
