PostBooks accounting/ERP/CRM - 2.3.1 Release Candidate

xTuple is pleased to announce the release candidate for PostBooks version 2.3.1, containing a number of fixes and tweaks from the beta two weeks ago. A big thank you to everyone who participated in the beta testing!

With this "RC" today, we believe we're about done - 2.3.1 final should be available by week's end, after which we'll be plunging into version 3.0 in a big way. (In fact, we've already got the first Big Idea out there for your comments - the oft-requested user-friendly concept of a Display Builder within the xTuple application. See www.xtuple.org for more details).

The release notes for the RC are below.

Thanks very much again, and if anyone has a spare cycle or two to take one more pass at the RC, we'd certainly be obliged.

Cheers,
Ned
