Is there a known release date for V8?
We have established a need for an ERP system in our business and we are toying with the idea of going on the technical training but are unsure whether to focus on v7 now or wait till version 8 is released?
This is the question that everyone is asking, given the fact that it was announced at the open days that the 7th of July was going to be the big release date. Now it is two weeks on and nobody knows when it is going to be out of the 'RC' state. It is important because I cannot set any developers onto the task of writing reports and modules until we have something that is stable enough to be called an official release.
I installed odoo v8 RC1 from github (in v8 barnch at time of writing) on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS using this script: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/lukebranch/openerp-install-scripts/master/odoo-saas4/ubuntu-14-04/odoo_install.sh
I just replacfed the line
to use the usual 8069 port
There are some other scripts around that I did not test.
No real issue found up to now. you can probably start your evaluation on this version.
I think there is no official release date of Odoo V8 that they have declared so far.
In github, you will find latest V8, you can download and test modules as per your requirement. However, there are some lackings in V8 code, but overall I can say that you can go with V8. There is no need to focus anymore on V7. Because there is not a major difference in V7 & V8 unless they have added new website modules and API. When you get technical training from anywhere, do not forget to learn the new API of V8, not only old kind of V7 technical code.
