LedgerSMB 1.3.29 released

LedgerSMB 1.3.29 has been released and contains a significant number of fixes and if these fixes affect you, you may want to upgrade to this or a higher version.  Please note that 1.3.31 has some significant bugfixes in it, and consequently we will be recommending that everyone move to this version or higher when it comes out.

 
The changelog for 1.3.29 is below.
 

I'm using non-ASCII (Unicode) characters. Why can't I generate PDF output?

The short answer is that TeX doesn't know how to deal with UTF-8 (or rather non-ASCII) characters. XeTeX has been designed to work around these limitations. The easiest way to generate PDFs is to install Xe(La)TeX and use the 'xedemo' templates - these templates have been 'ported' from LaTeX to XeLaTeX.

Distribution specific install instructions listed below.

Debian / Ubuntu 

Install texlive-xetex that includes xelatex

LedgerSMB 1.3.28 released, contains security fixes

LedgerSMB 1.3.28 has been released and includes two security fixes. It is a recommended upgrade for all LedgerSMB 1.3.x users. The major fixes in this area have to do with administrative password resets being ineffective, and HTTP credentials not being cleared. These fixes are available separately to any user who needs them.

LedgerSMB 1.3.27 released, migration enhancements

LedgerSMB 1.3.27 has been released. This version includes a number of enhancements to the migration process, creating new user accounts for 1.2 users (passwords must still be set by an administrator), and a number of minor bug fixes that will improve the user experience. While this is not a drastic improvement on previous versions it is an incremental one.
