SVN r4969

SVN r4969

The best part of this blog is that it's always on a Friday afternoon, and the weekend is near.

There were 39 new commits this week. SVN r4969 builds and installs successfully. Important changes this week:
  • A lot of work was done on the Shark integration by Andy, which is continuing
  • The work effort component is being upgraded to the new screen-widget
  • The entities and first unit tests for the entity engine test suite are in place.

A Look Ahead

Here are some things in the works for OFBiz that I know of:
  • We are headed towards a new release, version 3.5 of OFBiz. Please take a look at the issues on JIRA and help out as much as you can. There are things everyone can do to help.
  • David is working on an integration of the OFBiz Entity Engine with LDAP. This may happen after the new release comes out.
  • Andy will be working on Shark workflow engine integration, the pick/pack/shipping features, financial accounts (gift certificates and bank accounts), and Payflow Pro.
  • Jacopo will be working on completing the Request-Quote-Order process, reports for manufacturing, and improving some of the order entry processes.
  • I have been helping out with the entity engine testing and doing the accounting and G/L implementation.
This is of course not exhaustive, as we have so many community members and contributors now. If you are working on something for OFBiz and didn't get mentioned, please feel free to make a comment or drop a note on the list.
