Openbravo community highlights 3rd of August 2007

R2.33 contains many new features and bug fixes, including a complete review of the English and Spanish terminology and language used in the application (see this post and

We also have defined the criteria for releasing Openbravo builds, that is, the list of tests performed by Openbravo every time that a release is packaged from the SVN tree.

There are also more news that happened during the past weeks:
  • There is a new document at Openbravo Wiki that explains how to create new looks and feel for Openbravo.
  • We have created the Openbravo technical specifications that explain the technologies used and requiered by Openbravo ERP.
  • Daniel Hukkelhoven from Dalox has published a draft version of the char of accounts for Netherlands. Any feedback is welcome.

There is a forum thread where we are discussing the best approach.

That's all for now. If you have any news regarding Openbravo success or efforts, please let me know (jmas at
