When I installed odoo 8 on window 8.1 with  GreenOdoo http://www.greenodoo.com/ , everything work perfect until the point I try to install [knowledge module] FTP is missing. Is this a bug? or FTP is not longer valid in odoo8?   please help.

Hello jc, indeed, the document_ftp FTP synchro has been removed in v8...

Thanks RV, do you know is there a replacement? currently I have a module created in openerp 7 to ftp some files created on the fly to the server. I am evaluating odoo 8 now and I will be very worry if odoo 8 does not consider backward compatible for this.
