We have just published our development plans for Openbravo POS 2.20. It follows the spirit of the previous releases: frequent releases, improvements in functionality, localization and stability of the application to make Openbravo POS a top Point of Sale solution in the global market, growing in the number of supported countries and translations in every release. Openbravo POS 2.2 follows the principles of all the versions of Openbravo POS: simplicity, easy to use, visually attractive, robust and scalable.
We request the collaboration of the community to help us to define and identify the most important features that need to be included in the product and things that need to be fixed. Your collaboration is important because you are the best people that are able to identify what is missing in Openbravo POS for each country and for different market segments. You are invited to the Open Discussion forum of Openbravo POS to discuss what do you want to have in the next releases of Openbravo POS.
The objectives of this roadmap is to continue to add value to partners and users of Openbravo POS to help them to develop a business around Openbravo POS, attract interest of current partners and potential partners of Openbravo. In Openbravo 2.10 we did a lot of efforts in this area with the new reports model and the improvements in scripting support and we want to continue in this area.
We have already published a draft of the roadmap for the release 2.20 in the wiki of Openbravo POS with the features what we think are the most important for the next released of Openbravo based on the time schedule and the resources that we have. This roadmap is not closed and we were are willing to align it with the needs and priorities of the Openbravo community.
Openbravo POS is and open source product and developed in a collaborative maner. During the last three months, we have started successful collaborations with individuals and companies that are working on extending the Openbravo POS functionality. For Openbravo POS 2.2, we plan to add in the core product new functionaries developed by third parties. You can guarantee that a particular feature is developed sooner rather than later by leading the development. We are willing to coordinate with people that is planing to invest on Openbravo POS product development to make sure that the results are going to be shared by all the community.
