The LedgerSMB development team is happy to announce yet another new
version of its open source ERP and accounting application.
This release contains the fix for a dataloss issue that was reported
to us two days ago. The issue concerns the deletion of batches, which
causes loss of information linking payments to the transactions being
paid. This issue is present in all 1.8 releases before 1.8.25 and all
1.9 releases before 1.9.7. Additionally, it contais the following
fixes and improvements:
