Version 3.2.1 released - xTuple ERP (PostBooks)

Hello,

xTuple ERP version 3.2.1 is now available for download! You can find the free PostBooks Edition here at Sourceforge, or if you're a commercial customer using the Standard or Manufacturing Editions, you can download those files from xtuple.org.

This is primarily a bug fix release but does contain several new features designed to support custom screen and package development.

We're well underway with planning for version 3.3, which will include enhancements to the taxation engine, Distribution Requirements Planning (DRP), and a number of usability improvements in Sales, CRM, and Accounting. We'll also be continuing our architectural work that provides for easier loading and unloading of Packages, and faciliates the development of web interfaces. If you'd like to get involved, either as a sponsor of new features, or on the development and testing front, please let us hear from you!... read more

By popular demand, we're very happy to announce the new xTuple Wiki site:

www.xtuple.org/index.php?option=com_wrapper&Itemid=70

xTuple ERP: PostBooks 2.3.2 released + nightly builds

Greetings all,

Just a quick note to let everyone know that we've released an updated version 2.3.2, containing a number of small bug fixes since 2.3.1 was released a month ago.

So - say it with me - DON'T USE THE NIGHTLY BUILDS IN PRODUCTION! :)... read more
