  • This marks an incremental, bugfix release for the 1.4 series, and corrects a number of problems with the employee/user workflow. Anyone using LedgerSMB 1.4 in a multi-user environment should probably upgrade as soon as possible. A number of other fixes were made in relation to Starman usage and a few in areas relating to application setup.

New in version 1.4.12 (June 24th, 2015)

  • This release corrects an issue introduced by an earlier bugfix where users permissions can not be rese from the front-end properly. This affects at least 1.4.10 and 1.4.11.

New in version 1.4.11 (April 29th, 2015)

  • This release corrects some issues with the usability of the Malay translation, and many more. Of particular note, we fixed a number of issues with password special character handling and added the ability to delete account headings. Some of these bugs we fixed make some work flows more error prone and we would recommend that 1.4 users upgrade as soon as convenient.

New in version (January 18th, 2015)

  • This includes a significant number of bug fixes, but also adds a complete Malay translation for the software. In general, we're getting to the point here where it is worth upgrading for the bug fixes or the translation.

New in version 1.4.10 (January 18th, 2015)

  • Note: Corrected version numbers in, 1.4.10 had 1.4.9 as version
  • Malay translation added (Kaiser F, and others)

  • Fixed html in fixed assets screens (Erik H)

New in version 1.4.9 (December 6th, 2014)

  • As expected there was an issue with 1.4.8. This is unusual for us but given what the changes in 1.4.8 corrected, it was important that they were fixed. Unfortunately the regression posed significant issues so we did an emergency release here.
  • In 1.4.8 we advised peopel only to upgrade if they were affected by the bugs listed. We now have confidence that the changes are stable on 1.4.9. It is a better time to upgrade but if you want to be cautious, feel free to wait for 1.4.10.

New in version 1.4.7 (November 28th, 2014)

  • This release brings the ability to store templates formatted differently for different languages in the database, corrects display issues on the Income Statement, adds client-side validation to contact forms for easier use, and fixes a couple of minor other errors. The complete changelog is below. Users should probably consider upgrading in the near future if they use the built-in profit and loss reports.

New in version 1.4.5 (October 31st, 2014)

  • Fixed bug 1245, print and email buttons lost after email invoice (Chris T)

New in version 1.4.3 (October 6th, 2014)

  • There is a significant problem fixed here which everyone should be aware of. The currency formatting settings moved from per installation to per-company, but the sales tax calculations used the old location and therefore rounded off to the nearest whole currency. This only affected users of 1.4.0 - 1.4.2.

New in version 1.4.2 (September 29th, 2014)

  • In response to a problem found with batch processing in 1.4 and confirmed in 1.3, we have gone ahead and released 1.3.44 a bit early and with a fairly small changelog. Especially if you use batch processing on 1.3 you should upgrade. Long-time users may not notice the problem on older, upgraded databases, but with newer databases, the batch locks may lock users out of the software.
