Odoo v9 release timing update…

Whilst our taste-buds have been tempted with the features shown in the recent Odoo Conference, the reality is that a stable release is quite some time away and would be anticipating this to be March 2016. There is an ‘alpha’ v9 out there, however we are expecting the ‘beta’ to be out Q4 (Sept – Dec 2015) and this will be both the Odoo v9 Community and Odoo v9 Enterprise versions.

 

What we are recommending for Australian sites is that you go ahead with Odoo v8 and add an accounting software (MYOB, Quickbooks or Xero) connector until ready for v9. The key reason for this is Australian payroll requirements and also the fact that most of these sites are already on a localised accounting software for BAS/GST management.

 

Also keep in mind that the v9 Enterprise version will have some interesting features that will not be in v9 Community – these include bank recs via bank feed, electronic signatures / document management and dynamic accounting reporting.
