Upgrade from v7 to v8?

on 2/1/14, 9:35 AM 2,682 views


I read that middle 2014 maybe the v8 are released? I try to set up now v7 for my small company, but I can wait if is clever. So, can I later upgrade to v8 OR should I wait?


V8 has great improvements like the website builder and e-commerce. I'm using v6.1 and will migrate to v8.

Hi Mario! I setup now a virtual Ubuntu 13.10 for v8 (just testing). Maybe you know a install docu for Ubuntu Server? Or is it the same as for v7? Thanks!

Ok, v8 is running. I use http://www.theopensourcerer.com/2012/12/how-to-install-openerp-7-0-on-ubuntu-12-04-lts/comment-page-1/#comment-64779 for a walk-trough.

What about the migration. Is V7->V8 similar to V6.1->V7 ? I've done V6.1 -> V7 allright, just wanting to see if going to V8 will be difficult... Thanks

You'll want to check out the OpenUpgrade Script. It is a community effort to provide open source upgrade paths from one OpenERP/odoo version to another. Check the documentation.
