This week’s release we focused on new automatism’s in Vendor and Customer Returns Functionalities.
Further on we include a huge amount of new Windows in WebUI to already existing Functionalities in Swing Client. A fair amount of effort also went into the implementation of the Translatability of static elements in the metasfresh WebUI. Last but not least we started the work on the new Kanban Board Window Type and on making the Dashboard User dependent. The last two topics are still under development and will be release soon.

Thanks a lot to all our contributors for making this happen. Another week is over and the amount of new feature and fixes is tremendous again. Very well done!
