New apps, improvements, new features and much more

Odoo 8 is moving into new territories, beyond ERP. This release includes a disruptive website builder, an integrated eCommerce, an iPad/Android based Point-of-Sale and a Business Intelligence engine and several awesome inbound marketing apps. No other product allows such a level of integration out-of-the-box. That’s why we renamed OpenERP into Odoo for version 8. There is no comparison anymore with traditional ERP products.

Key improvements of version 8 include, by order of priority:

  • Usability & productivity improvements: Odoo 8 is faster, easier to use and configure
  • Improvement of existing apps: 732 tasks covering most applications
  • New website builder and CMS
  • New apps: Point of sales with full hardware support, marketing apps, a new WMS and a CMS,
  • The frontend to every app: online jobs offers, booking of events, quotation builder and electronic signature, etc.
  • Technical improvements: refactoring of the framework (new API)
  • Removed modules / features

This new version is the result of 1432 tasks and 12.500 man*days of development during 18 months. A huge effort has been done on the cleaning of the existing code base, resulting in only 17k lines of python code added for all these new features.
