Odoo/OpenERP release strategy ... Where is stable ?

on 7/11/14, 3:27 AM 2,165 views


What is the release strategy for Odoo/OpenERP.

There are some statements here: https://doc.openerp.com/v7.0/contribute/14_release_cycle/#release-cycle

Which do not seem to be applied in GitHUB  where only nightbuilt are available

Could someone clarify ?

Thank you

*** Disclaimer, I do not officially speak for odoo ***

Odoo's release strategy is more of a guideline and from what I can see, they are less worried about dates and more worried about what will ship and getting it right.  I only fault their lack of communication not the quality of the product. 

The nightly build repository: http://nightly.odoo.com is tied to launchpad at the moment.  I believe that their development resources are currently focused on v8 Stable Release and then they will move on to getting nightly to work with github.

Their developers have said that they will first migrate their saas userbase, fixing bugs found along the way, before they commit to a stable release to v8.  But as of July 7th odoo v8 Release Candidate 1 has been available on github for download.  It now has the new v8 API and the code is not expected to change drastically. 

From odoo's development manager (as of July 6th) these are the last few things that still need to be completed:
- exporting translations
- rename in a backward compatible way openerp -> odoo
- fix the packaging
- fix apps installation
- fix bugs that we will discover while migrating our online userbase

Odoo 8 is released on github (as in, its own branch) but it is a release candidate (RC1).

Both the community as well as OpenERP themselves will test it and submit more information on a release date once this has been done.

Thanks but what about v7 ? Is there anything else that the nighlty built?


Answering to Stephen as this forum does not allow to publish 1 answer per question (really strange forum)

Thank you for the clarification. As far as I get it, the download choice today are rather the nightly built of v7 or pre-release of v8 which means that there is no stable version made avalable to the community. This will only happen later on this year with release of v8.

Did I get it right?



Franck, I finally have the ability to comment on any post... anyway you are thinking a little bit wrong. The current offical Stable releases are 6.0, 6.1 and 7.0 (saas-5). Version 8.0 is in Release Candidate 1, while 9.0 is in Alpha 1. I think version 8.0 will be release stable withing the month at that time version 6.0 will be retired. Hope that makes sense to you, and you can comment to this since it is your own post.
