Too early for V8?

We are going forward with Odoo as the ERP of choice. Target (but not drop-dead) deployment date is 1-1-15.

Sales, basic warehouse management, 4-company accounting (multicurrency) and, most likely, CRM. Nothing else to start with.

Would you feel comfortable going wtth V8? The Qweb and BI features seem quite enticing. But bug-chasing gives us pause.

Thank you in advance

The v8 is surely going to be stable in max 2 months and with the variety of features, you should definitely recommend your client to allow you to implement ERP in v8. It will be more than an ERP for him.

Tried the development version a couple of weeks ago. If I recall right, some bugs and the lack of modules made me downgrade to v7.

By Jan/15 you will have v9 at the front door. You would be deploying a product that's 2 major versions behind...

If you need to implemented know, I would recommended version 7 instead of v8.

Why? Because not everything is working 100%, still some modules are not ported yet.

But you have almost 6 months before you need to go live, so it's should be possible to go with v8. Offcourse you will encounter some problems, but within the time frame you give, it's possible to go around most of them, and ask for help from the community.

If you have an paid Odoo, i should not be worried and just go with v8. 


Thank you everyone for suggestions and insight. 

The lack of ported modules is another area of concern, specially the German localization which one of our companies will require. The other localizations are trivial.
