Changelog for 1.8.2

1.8.1 Released

Submitted by LedgerSMB_Team on Tue, 09/08/2020 - 12:26

The LedgerSMB development team is happy to announce yet another new
version of its open source ERP and accounting application.

This release corrects a rounding bug in the payments code which
causes differences between the payment amount entered by the user and
the amount recorded in the ledger (although the actual amount recorded
is later correctly presented). Due to the high level of inconvenience
of this bug, this release follows quickly on the release of 1.8.0.

Does LedgerSMB support "sub-accounts"?

Submitted by ehu on Thu, 07/30/2020 - 09:50

Yes. LedgerSMB has a mechanism called "Account headings". The headings are the opposite of what Intuit explains about Quickbooks for their subaccount support: Quickbooks splits an account into multiple and aggregates those new accounts into the old one for reporting. To achieve the same in LedgerSMB, you create multiple accounts and one or more headings. LedgerSMB then aggregates the totals of the accounts per heading. The system used by LedgerSMB closely resembles what MYOB describes about their accounts and headers.

Upgrade to LedgerSMB 1.8

Submitted by ehu on Mon, 07/27/2020 - 23:11

Overview

Company database upgrades are supported all the way back from 1.4 directly to 1.8, using the 1.8 software. Company database upgrades from 1.3 and 1.2 are also supported, but due to the different nature of the upgrade process are called "migrations". The important difference being that when doing a migration, a copy of the data is being created in the 1.8 structure, while upgrades adjust the existing structure for 1.8.

1.8.0-beta3 Released

Submitted by LedgerSMB_Team on Sat, 07/25/2020 - 03:06

In preparation of the final release of LedgerSMB 1.8, the release branch has been created for a period of stabilization. In order to release the most stable version released by the project ever released, a preview version was published earlier today: 1.8.0-beta3.

Installing latest LedgerSMB using Docker Compose

Submitted by ehu on Sat, 06/20/2020 - 04:48

By far the fastest procedure for installing LedgerSMB is by using the published Docker images: Being an ERP, there are many dependencies to be installed and all of them are included in the images, with the exception of the required PostgreSQL database. There are two ways to provide the PostgreSQL functionality: by setting up a separate PostgreSQL server or by using a PostgreSQL-providing Docker container.
