What an exciting last month March 2017 is now behind our project. The preparation of the webUI just getting finished with our major 5.0 release days in advance of the Chemnitzer Linux Days. The atmosphere there was awesome and we were able to talk to a lot of great people there, providing us with a lot of valuable feedback about our project community and of course our ERP Software. A week later we were at the CeBIT 2017 with our own stand in the Open Source Park. What an exciting week, having a lot of awesome talks with great people. All the effort for preparation and getting ready just in time, was absolutely worth it.
Thanks a lot to all contributors and to all people that gave us feedback about our work. It means the world to us.
Currently we are focusing on doing stabilisation and are further working on detailed improvements of the new Web User Interface. One of the main efforts at the moment is the implementation of our new manufacturing functionality which will get a complete new planning step „manufacturing disposition“ and a new and user friendly User Interface in the WebUI. The time from demand to execution will be reduced dramatically with this new Implementation. We are planning to have the first Milestone finished for this in early June.

Thanks a lot to all contributors!
