Re: Please confirm comments on v9 UI

In v5 we had the webclient and the gtk client. When we killed the gtk client 
in v7 we were told that it was atrocious to kill the native gtk client :)

In v9 both clients respect the same contract/specification and api. So 
form/list/kanban view and actions will be rendered correctly in both. It's 
only if you create web modules that tweak the internals of the webclient that 
you might get some incompatibilities. Such modules are rare in Odoo Apps and 
many of them will be deprecated by the new design.

The Odoo Community v9 webclient has been improved a lot (new js module system, 
kanban, graph, pivot, search), the Odoo Enterprise and Odoo Online v9 client 
even more (layout dom, action manager, controlpanel and from view rendering).

We updated the /pricing-online page, we will publish an edition comparaison 
page very soon the draft is here 
(it's a DRAFT there might be errors or inaccuracies please wait for the final 
one to be published before commenting)

The goal of that page is to clearly explain the difference between the 3 
editions. In v9 there is a clear visual difference in the UI between the 
community and the enterprise and online edition.

But every feature of community will work perfectly in both clients from a 
business point of view (minus the responsive design, flickering/rendering 
improvement and speedups).
