1.3.14 released

The LedgerSMB core team is proud to announce LedgerSMB 1.3.14. This
release corrects the final outstanding missing feature from 1.3.x,
namely the ability to edit pricelists per customer or vendor. At
this point there are no known features from 1.2.x that are missing in

This release corrects a number of bugs including reconciliation
mappings not being set by default, the point of sale always using TCP
to communicate with the host for pole display purposes, unknown
databases incorrectly detected as SQL-Ledger, and more.

How do I delete a company database ?

I had created a second database. To delete it, do I just drop the database from postgresql?

it'll remove the roles and the database.

Performance Issues w/Ledgersmb 1.3.x

By Steven Marshall

I found something very interesting. I created a test HTML page containing solely text called testpage.html. I dropped this file in two locations. One in the Apache root directory (/srv/www/htdocs/) and the other in the ledgersmb directory (/user/local/ledgersmb/). I changed ownership of the file to wwwrun:www. I then ran the following tests:

Test 1:
Results: Page loaded almost instantaneously.

Do I have to type in the full customer's name on the invoice screen? Didn't there used to be a drop-down list?


But I'm glad to be able to deny your conclusion above: the system will search on any partial match, both on the customer number or on the customer name. So, there's no need to spell them quite exactly.

Also, if you want the drop downs back, there's a setting in the System -> Defaults screen (third item below the currency settings input box; "Max per dropdown"). If you enter 99999 into that (assuming you don't have that many customers), you'll be presented the selection list you're used to.
