Openbravo community highlights 29th of March 2007

Hello everybody,

There are some news that happened during the past days:
  • We have updated our product roadmap. Release 2.30 has been delayed a bit but new functionality is going to be included. Also we have detailed the roadmap for Openbravo R.2 until the end of the year and we have give more details about the current roadmap for Openbravo R3 (the new platform due mid 2008). Soon, we will publish new details of the new platform and ask everyone in the community for feedback.
  • We have finished documenting the localisation of Openbravo using PO files. This new way of translating the application (is still possible to use XML) makes more easy the translation and allows to leverage all the popular tools that support PO format.
That's all for now.
