- Update of Openbravo ERP core: now supported from the Openbravo Central Repository and can be downloaded directly from the Module Management window. After having applied this maintenance pack, users can discover and download any future core updates directly from the Openbravo user interface.
- Support for commercial modules: now commercial modules are supported in the Openbravo Central Repository which verifies the presence and validity of an entitlement key at download and installation time. Authors of commercial solutions can now rely on this infrastructure to ensure the integrity of their intellectual property.
Additionally, only instances activated with a professional subscription can acquire commercial modules.
- Support for different numeric formats: different numeric formats can be defined including comma as decimal separator. When typing the decimal separator in numeric keypad the proper symbol (dot or comma) will be used. Rich numeric formats are used by default, but when a numeric field get focused then a simplified format -without grouping separators and padding 0's- is used to simplify data entry.
- New image reference: a new image reference (BLOB) has been created so users can directly upload images from the Openbravo ERP user interface. Images are stored in the database.
- System logos: System logos are now configurable through this new image reference. It solves issue 8818: it is not possible to change logos as part of a module. See how to do this here.
- Heartbeat extension: Heartbeat is converted to an opt-out feature and its activation required to install modules from the Central Repository.
- 10414: Session time-out can be configured from the Openbravo user interface (Application dictionary/AD Implementation Mapping). See how to configure it here.
- 10586: Reverse invoice - You can now reverse an invoice and establish a link from the original to the reverse invoice. This relation is preserved in the system.
- 10447: User System shouldn't be able to login, but it currently has a password.
- 10492: DBSourceManagement of previous version is used to upgrade to a newer version of Openbravo.
