Openbravo POS upgrades its license to GNU GPL version 3

With the publication of the upcoming new release of Openbravo POS we have decided to upgrade the terms of its license from GNU GPL version 2 to version 3. With GNU GPL version 3 we are up to date with the latest version of the license and we close several gaps of the previous license like granting patent licenses to every user, extending compatibility with other free software licenses and dealing with the new threats to free software that have emerged since version 2 of the GNU GPL.

Openbravo POS 2.30 delayed

As published in the Openbravo POS roadmap, the planned dates for Openbravo POS 2.30 were 30th January 2009 for the beta release and 27th February 2009 for the production release. Unfortunately we have not been able to publish the beta release the 30th January and for sure it will not be possible to release the production release on time.

The progress of the development of the features for the 2.30 is going as expected but the development team is not very big and we have accumulated a few weeks of delay due to competing priorities.

If you cannot wait until the release of the beta or the production release because you want to see the progress about features like the PDA module for restaurants, the data integration processes between Openbravo ERP and Openbravo POS, ... You can access the subversion repository, download the sources and compile yourself Openbravo POS. It is very easy and everything is documented. Just follow the steps of the Developer's Guide.

We expect not to delay the publication of the beta and the production releases more than one month. And any change in this situation will be communicated to the Openbravo POS community. Stay tuned...
