Dolibarr ERP & CRM 5.0 has been released

Version of branch 5.0 of Dolibarr ERP & CRM is available.

Version 5.0 is a major release with a lot of new features for both users and developers. You can find it on into the download area of portal (sub-directory Stable versions). A lot of major features were introduced into this version, like recurring invoices and automatic generation, selection of fields to show for all major lists, mass action on invoices, selection on number of lines onto lists, a module Loan and Supplier commercial proposal, a better responsive design behavior.

Note that the new module multi-currency and double-entry accounting are not yet completely stable. We recommend to wait 5.0.1 if you plan to activate and install them. Version 5.0.1 should be released after the DevCamp in Orleans that take place this week-end.

Following changes may create regression for some external modules, but were necessary to make
Dolibarr better:
- Function delete of class Facture (invoice) need the object $user as first parameter. Also you must
  check you make a fetch on object before calling the delete.
- The old driver of "mysql" has been removed. Dolibarr use the new one (mysqli) by default.
- Remove not used function calculate_byte(). Use dol_print_size() instead.
- Function pdf_getTotalQty is now deprecated. Not used by Dolibarr core.
- Method commande->deleteline($lineid) has been replaced with commande->deleteline($user, $lineid).
- Method expensereport->delete(id, user) has been replaced with ->delete(user)
  Method warehouse->delete(id) has been replace with ->delete(user)
  This is to follow good practice to make a fetch on object before deleting it.
- The form to add a product to a draft proposal/order/invoice, from the product card, is hidden by default.
  It was not commonly used and usage generates some problems (cost price for margin calculation not entered, vat setting).  
  Set constant PRODUCT_ADD_FORM_ADD_TO to retrieve it.
- The javascript "datatables" library was previously provided into Dolibarr sources, but it was not used by application.
  So there is no reason to maintain its compatibility with other dolibarr components. If an external module need this 
  library, this external module must embed the library in his own sources/packages.
- A new paramater sqlfilters was introduced to allow filter on any fields int the REST API. Few old parameters,
  no more required, were also removed. Use this new one if you were using one of them.
- The trigger that activate or close a contract line is run on a contract line, not on contract.
- Method commande->set_availability(user, availability_id) removed from commande class, use method commande->availability(availability_id, notrigger).

Dolibarr 5.0 was frozen before PHP 7.1 was released. Unit tests are successful on PHP 7.1 but we don't have enough
feedback to confirm all application is compatible. Current official supported PHP versions are PHP 5.3 to 7.0.

Dolibarr ERP & CRM is Open Source software. You can download, use and redistribute it at any time. Do you want to test the latest version of Dolibarr?
