I just released a first beta for the upcoming new release of version 1.5.0. I would like to ask you to help testing the app as it contains a lot of new features and some major parts of the application were rewritten or changed.
If you used Beta 2 or 3 before you can update directly by replacing all files. If this is your first Beta you can upgrade from version 1.4.10 or make a completely fresh install.
Please read these additional upgrade notes.
Please report any issues in this thread only. Please do not open new threads for issues with this beta version.
Do not use this beta version in your production environment! We cannot promise that everything is working as expected and may also lead to major data loss.
Configuration is now saved in the
ipconfig.php file (IP-484)
This is a very important change to separate all important configuration from the application itself. If you upgrade an existing setup, follow these steps:
- Make a copy of the
ipconfig.php.examplefile and rename it to
- Note your database credentials and overwrite the
application/config/database.phpfile with the new one.
- Set your domain in the
ipconfig.phpfile. There is a setting for this on top of the file.
- Start the setup. The setup will ask for your database credentials and automatically save them. After that the database is upgraded for 1.5.0.
26 new Online Payment providers
You want your customers to pay their invoices via PayPal, credit card or even Bitcoin? InvoicePlane now features 26 new online payment providers from PayPal or Stripe to Coinbase.
If you used PayPal before: please re-enter your credentials as they can’t be migrated automatically.
Warning: always use the test mode to test the online payment feature. We can’t be hold liable if you lose any money or get in problems with your payment provider.
InvoicePlane now supports third-party themes and ships with two different themes. Take a look at the themes repository for more information.
Please notice that the files for custom CSS (
custom-pdf.css) moved to the
assets/core/css folder. Make sure you transfer your custom styles to these files.
