New version of JFire ERP released

JFire 1.2.0 (a.k.a. Farnsworth) is a big technology update. Besides new versions of the underlying technology (DataNucleus 3.0, Eclipse 3.6, Birt 2.6) JFire now includes a web-based client. It is based on Eclipse RAP and through single-sourcing with RCP it provides nearly the same functionality as the default JFire client. Try our demo-installtion here: http://demo.jfire.org/jfirerap/jfire/index.jsp.

There are other noteworthy new things in JFire are. The user management was enhanced. User directory subsystems can now be integrated and with the first implementation a LDAP integration is provided that allows for authentication using LDAP and synchronization of users between LDAP and JFire.

Reporting users can now schedule the execution of a report. This way they can have their favourite business-statistics emailed to them regularly.

The CRM module provides enhancements to the person relation management and issue tracking as well as added customization possibilities for the client ui.
