Foodsoft 4.1.0 released


I’m happy to announce that Foodsoft 4.1.0 was released today. Foodsoft is online software for running a non-profit foodcoop (a collective do-it-yourself supermarket) with a product catalog, order cycle, accounting and tasks.

What’s new?

  • PDF options for fontsize, pageformat and -breaks.
  • Performance improvements.
  • The potentially dangerous ‘settle directly’ button was moved to the order’s balancing screen.
  • New screen to view all financial transactions (and download them as csv).
  • Configurable page footer.
  • The use of messaging and apple points is now optional.
  • When synchronising with the shared database, much more units are recognised (e.g. 20gr, 5lb, etc.).
  • Internet Explorer 11 had a problem with clicking buttons, which was fixed.

And many other small changes and fixes, read more in the changelog. You can download this version here.

This is the first stable version to use Ruby on Rails version 4.0, so if you’re maintaining a foodsoft installation, please be aware that you might need a little extra attention when upgrading from version 3.3.0.

Thanks go to @wvengen and @robwa for making the changes, as well as all others who contributed in filing issues, translating and testing.
