Our main focus in this week’s Release was on finishing the new Manufacturing workflow in the Web Interface. This includes the implementation of our new Material Distribution Framework, in which we prepared the ground for the development of our Microservices architecture.

Last but not least, we have made huge steps forward in the Translation of metasfresh to other languages. The first work is done for dutch Language and the translation for polish Language is already in work in progress.
