1.3.39 released

March 31st, 2014 -- Announcement of the 1.3.39 release.
We've released LedgerSMB 1.3.39.  This provides a number of fixes.  Users of 1.3.38 are urged to upgrade as soon as possible, due to a bug inadvertently introduced in that release, which causes difficulty posting AR and AP transactions.

Heartbleed and LedgerSMB

What follows is a slightly edited version of a post to the email lists.  While LedgerSMB does not directly utilize OpenSSL, it is usually deployed on web servers that do.  No upgrades of LedgerSMB are required, but you may need to update the security libraries of your web server.  Please read further for the sorts of implications this has regarding LedgerSMB and what we would recommend about mitigating and recovering from risks.

Virtualbox Appliance of 1.3.37 released


Frans van der Star, working with UTAR, a university in Malaysia, has put together a virtual appliance running LedgerSMB 1.3.37.  This can be downloaded at https://sourceforge.net/projects/ledger-smb/files/ledgersmb/virtualbox/  Be warned.  It is a very large download (approx. 3 GB).

The password for the virtualbox instance is 123456.  Enjoy!

Remotely Exploitable: No
Complexity of Attack:  High

1.3.37 released

LedgerSMB 1.3.37 has been released. This is a significant release with a number of important fixes including two security fixes (please stay tuned for security advisories on these two usually-minor security issues). The two security fixes address client handling of authentication credentials and the possibility of someone with physical access to the same browser session having an unexpected amount of access after logout (to a varying degree on different browsers). Usually this is not an issue. In a few cases, though, it may be.

New Core Committee Members


I would like to take the opportunity to welcome Pongracz Istvan, John Locke, and Herman Vierendeels to the core committee.  They have contributed significantly to the shape of the project over a period of time.

Welcoming more members to the LedgerSMB core committee continues to further our goals of offering a true multi-vendor high quality accounting and ERP product for the open source world.

The LedgerSMB Core Team is proud to release 1.3.36.

This release corrects a significant issue in printing invoices with manually calculated sales tax. This is a significant update, and anyone using 1.3.35 or manually entered sales tax should update relatively quickly.
