xTuple ERP: PostBooks 3.2.0 RC

The Release Candidate for xTuple ERP (PostBooks, Standard, and Manufacturing Edition) version 3.2.0 is now available. This is the first release that we can recommend for production use; XTN subscribers, please contact us to arrange for an upgrade at a time that is convenient for you.

There is quite a bit of exciting new functionality in this release, including dozens of significant enhancements to CRM, Manufacturing, Purchasing, and Accounting. 80 new features, and 270 bug fixes since version 3.1. See the full Release Notes for the 3.2.0 cycle at www.xtuple.org.

Our intention is to leave the Release Candidate open for a number of weeks, with a final release of version 3.2.0 the second week of January. A number of new customers will be going live in January with the Release Candidate; many others will migrate their existing systems over the holidays. We will incorporate what we expect to be a relatively small number of minor fixes and enhancements in that final release.

There will be a very short cycle for a 3.2.1 release, which will primarily focus on additional scripting tools for the Screen Builder (more on that soon!), and then we will turn our attention to version 3.3, which is targeted for late April. If you are looking to contribute or sponsor development for version 3.3, please let us know soon, as we expect it will fill up fast.
