uniCenta oPOS 4.1 Released!

It's been over a year since the release of 4.1 and as intended am releasing what we have achieved since 3.91.3 back into the community.

BIG THANKS to all users and followers of the uniCenta oPOS project, since its release here on Sourceforge in 2010, who chose to support the project by becoming uniCenta customers in 2016 & 2017

Forum access

We have a really annoying troll in our midst. Kampo, sarausa, Alexander George & so on... even passing themselves off as me - Jack. Whatever they decide to call themselves this week.

Have closed new forum posts. Everything is still there and can be searched and read.
Report to the Sourceforge guys and will await outcome before opening up again.

Moderated Posts saga still it goes on...

Suddenly it's ALL 'appening again!

Moderated Posts


Yet again experiencing Users posts to Moderation queue - even though those Users have posted previously.

Don't know why Sourceforge does this.
Nonetheless it is happening and takes me back to events earlier this year.
Will keep an eye on these, but don't expect miracles as I don't have control of this.

uniCenta oPOS vs. Chromis


Since the breakwaway of JohnL with his Chromis version of uniCenta opOS recently in Sept 2015 it makes sense that all mentions of Chromis, present and future, should be focussed on the Chromis project and not here on uniCenta oPOS project as they are not relevant to us directly..

Please ensure your relevant Chromis posts are posted there rather than our project.

I wish all the best for the future to johnl and his Chromis team in their excellent efforts to bring open-source POS software to the benefit of everyone!... read more

Sourceforge posts issue


Just became aware of another issue with Sourceforge forums and account permissions.

Forum Permissions somehow reset themselves to READ only for Members and Authenticated users - including my Admin account.
Don't get why this happened nor understand how new posts were created if this was the case.
This has affected quite a few of you it seems from the emails I've received.

I have changed Permissions back to what they were and will keep an eye on things....... read more

It's still not happening....


As much as we would like to upload our latest uniCenta oPOS version 3.91 to Sourceforge for you all - we've been trying several times a day since 14 July - we're just not able to do it.
Can't even upload the README_first.txt to let you know we're a bit stuck.... It just isn't happening.

Even though it's sad that Sourceforge is going through a tough time as ithey provide a great service to us all this is the sixth time this year, 2015, and we keep hitting the wall for one reason or another.
We need to find a way around the problem.... read more

uniCenta oPOS v3.91


Despite Sourceforge's alleged recovery from their storage issues last week we still cannot upload latest v3.91 releases - we have Widnows; Linux and Mac OS X completed and ready - all good to go!

If problem persists we will come up with an alternative download option in next few days.

uniCenta oPOS v3.91 Release - suspended

I pulled the 3.91 release immediately I saw posts in the forum.
They show critical issues so I reverted back to 3.90 as default release.

The problem lay with Java 1.8 JRE run-time and mainly affects reports.
I take the view that what goes in eventually needs to come out as reporting is such a crucial function of uniCenta oPOS

Aim is to resolve this as quick as possible and push out a new release before the weekend is over.... read more

Still having to moderate all forums - don't know why - even though it's all switched off and all authorised members can (supposedly) read, write & amend posts
...in the hands of Sourceforge after waiting a week to resolve.

Letting everyone know.

Despite having opened up uniCenta oPOS forums - Sunday 29 March early afternoon - and ceased all moderation, posts are still appearing as "awaiting moderation".

This is an issue with Sourceforge and they have been notified.

uniCenta participation in its Community


There have been a few posts and direct PM's in the last week as to why uniCenta is now moderting each post before it surfaces in our Community Forums.
Explanation is given in our earlier News post.

The simple reason is we are because...; our forums are here for uniCenta oPOS

Apart from our Adminstrator account being compromised (hacked) it's also because there have been various attempts to hijack our forums for other purposes.
This has not been an entirely bad thing by the way as it means it has helped us re-focus on providing what was originally started and that is; a forum for uniCenta oPOS issues.... read more
