Open For Business 2.0 Beta 1 Released

Here it is: Beta 1 of version 2.0! This release represents the completion of all of the major pieces of the OFBiz enterprise application framework, which has been the focus of the 2.0 release. For those who have been waiting for a stable release to get started with OFBiz, here you go. We plan to make the 2.0 Final release backward compatible with this release. Some things may be added, but configuration files and code that uses the APIs should need no changing.

This first beta release of version 2.0 represents the completion of all of the main components of the OFBiz framework. Other framework components will be added as the project progresses,
but the most important architectural enablers are now in place.

A number of people have contributed to this release that are regular users of
Open For Business, including (in no particular order) Chris Nelson, Chris Worley,
Mike Cannon-Brookes, Victor Salaman, Dustin Caldwell, and Ian Pojman. In addition
to these people we have received recommendations and feedback from dozens of users
and enthusiasts of OFBiz. Thanks everyone!

This release includes a number of bug fixes and cleanups that have been uncovered by use of the software in the project, and now that it is in beta we would like even more help making sure things work as expected, and as desired.

Please download it and let us know how it works for you and how it fits with your needs!

Later,
David Jones and Andy Zeneski
Co-Founders
The Open For Business Project
