Hi Odoo developers and Odoo team.

I'm starting to learn the new Odoo framework. To do more complicated things in my modules, I have been seeing the source code of the Odoo modules (CRM, ...), but the most of them are not ported to the new Odoo API (ORM methods, views, ...).

When will all of them be ported?. In Odoo 9 maybe?.

On the other hand, I would like to you offer some tutorials talking about the Odoo core's funcionalities. For instance, a few weeks ago I discovered a function to resize images, and this is not documented anywhere.

Thank you.

UPDATE: Odoo V9 will still support the V7 API and framework! This has been confirmed by the Odoo devs. You can find multiple posts about this on Twitter. For example: https://twitter.com/therp_stefan/status/606750366840061952 

Hi Eduardo,

Since a while Odoo has been working at converting existing modules from the Odoo 7 API to Odoo 8. I believe all web modules are written in V8. They will have to migrate ALL modules from the V7 API to the V8 before/when Odoo 9 is launched since there will be no backwards compatibility for the V7 API in Odoo 9 anymore.

As for the image resizing function you're asking about.. I've written a tutorial about it here: http://www.odoo.yenthevg.com/saving-and-res…ages-in-odoo-8/ do note that is made in the V7 API. There is no alternative in V8 API for resizing images, I guess they'll have to write that before 9 or somebody else has too. I've covered a bit of information about this in my tutorial too.

Yenthe, thank you for your answer and your tutorial.
