What revision of 7.0 is used in 15 free trial?

on 7/18/13, 4:03 AM 1,776 views

When we were doing experiments with 15 days free trial and our own installation from openERP nightly folder we found out that this 15 days trial (called as 7.0-saas-1) is more mature than the version we got from nightly folder. E.g. for this 7.0-saas-1 it is possible to import customized language files as csv-files and everything worked fine but for the version from nightly folder it doesn't work (just shows the white screen). We used the same steps for exporting, modifying, and importing the csv-files for both versions and expected to get the same results but didn't. So we would like to know what revision from nightly this 7.0-saas-1 is so that we can download it because it seems to be more stable than the latest version.

Or is there some features that are not supported on free nightly versions but are supported in commercial version? And if there is where we can find out list of unsupported features on free version?

The OpenERP Online offer is based on the trunk branch of OpenERP, which is the development branch where new features are added. OpenERP Online customers get new features automatically every month. Their branch is called saas-X because it's a snapshot of the trunk branch every month.

When you download a stable version (e.g. 7.0), you get a version where only bugfixes are applied, not new features. We do stable versions to allow users to stay on the same versions for several years without having a risk of a regression as we do not apply new features on stable versions.

The trunk (in our cloud offer) is stable too as we do extensive tests before merging a feature branch. But risks of a regression bug are higher as we frequently apply new features in the trunk. If such bugs appears, they are usually fixed within 2 open days for the SaaS.

A bugfix reported by an OpenERP Enterprise user is ported in both 7.0 and trunk. (sometimes with a 2 week delay as we resync branches 7.0 -> trunk about twice a month)

There is no commercial version of OpenERP. Everything is open source and all our bugs are applied in open source branches.

If you have a problem in the 7, it could be for two reasons;

  1. A problem in your installation/configuration
  2. Something considered as a new feature; will never be applied to stable
  3. A bug fixed on trunk, but not yet ported to 7 as none of our OpenERP Enterprise customer asked for it

You can test the latest stable (7) on runbot: http://runbot.openerp.com to check if it's a problem on your installation or not.

The policy on stable versions is to avoid fixing bugs if none of our customer are impacted because we prefer avoiding the risk of change/regression to protect existing customer using OpenERP in production. If one customer reports a bug, then we fix and apply it.

In runbot it gives error when trying to import csv-file "XmlHttpRequestError" we didn't get this error in our installation (in our installation importing csv file worked but when we selected this new language from preferencies openERP gives just blank page). I tested this also in runbot with trunk version and it also gives "XmlHttpRequestError" when I tested saas-1 version in runbot it also gave "XmlHttpRequestError" so it seems that the server that is running runbot has forbidden to download csv (of course there could be also a bug but this functionality worked on our 15 days trial).

Based on the further experiments (I'm working for gunnar's company) when we installed saas-1 version from the launchpad importing modified language files worked on it so it seems that there is some kind of bug in stable 7 branch which is fixed on trunk and saas-1.
