Upcoming release of Foodsoft 4.6

Hi everyone,

Since the last release, there’s a ton of new features and fixes (thanks @paroga!). Also, for the upcoming foodcoops.net deployment, a stable release is needed (for use with Docker).
Proposed release schedule:

   Sat 28 Oct 2017 - Initial testing and translating (some PRs may still be merged)
   Thu 2 Nov 2017 - Final testing and translating
   Fri 10 Nov 2017 - Release

Since there are quite some new features, I invite translators for French and German (and Dutch, but I can probably do that myself) to complete the missing strings. See for instructions. Note that the foodsoft-translation instance may not be updated this time, if you’d like to use the live-translations-feature, please let me know and I’ll see what I can do.

If you’re interested in relevant changes, please see the wiki for in-progress release notes.
Note that there are quite some changes, so testing is very much invited. Areas of attention:

  • documents plugin

  • sending messages

  • automated closing of orders, and optionally sending the order pdf automatically

  • changing the foodcoop margin from the configuration screen (are prices calculated properly?)

  • notification for user tasks

  • order groups pdf

  • and feel free to test the docker image (and instructions)

Please report if you find anything (also if all is well).

Kind regards,

  • Willem
