I have been involved as well quite a lot in the organization of the Odoo Community Association
code sprint which has been a success
! I am pleased to announce as well that I have been re-elected member of the board of the Odoo Community Association which allows me to participate actively in the very active Odoo open source community.
Visiting the fair is the opportunity as usual to discover the product through the hundreds of workshops, discuss with partners all over the world and understand the new trends for best business practices!
All in all a joyful and fruitful experience that I will definitively renew next year.
Additionally Odoo SA has made several announcements during the conference:
There will be 2 versions coming up for V9: Odoo Community Version and Enterprise Version.
- Community version will be similar to V8 but with some enhancement on Accounting module.
- Enterprise version will be based on Community version + set of exclusive module for Enterprise Contract such as Bank Reconciliation, Clean layout, Responsive to mobile device etc.
The plan of release V9 download version will be on 2015 Q4 (Tentative dates that might change!)
