xTuple ERP 5.0.0-alpha is now available for download from GitHub and SourceForge. Commercial editions and extensions can be downloaded by commercial customers from xTuple.org. Thanks to all who contributed to make this release possible, including Cordeck Building Solutions, Warning Lites, Larry Cartee, Alfredo Martinez, Scott Zuke, Steven Buttgereit, Jim Wirt, Wes Baker, and Joel White.
This release includes major changes to CRM functionality and the tax system, including integration with Avalara. There are significant changes to how CRM and tax data are stored in the database, so you may need to update customized scripts, reports, and MetaSQL queries. In addition, the deprecated portions of the Script Toolbox have been removed as previously announced, which may also require script updates.
Strict country checking is now required and how countries are stored in the database has been changed. Before upgrading to 5.0.0-alpha or later, you must install fixCountry 5.0.0-beta (SourceForge) and migrate the country data.
See the Release Notes for details.
We have also published a new Time & Expense extension version for 5.0.0 compatibility:
- A new package has been released (deprecatedtb) to help remove deprecated toolbox calls from custom scripts. A gz file (deprecatedtb-1.0.0-beta.gz) for this package has been attached to this announcement.
- Edited Dec 11, 2018 to update fixCountry extension download version and attach it here directly.
