I’m very proud to present many new, awesome features many user will find very helpful. After a long time without larger updates he project is now more active than before.
And now, more about version InvoicePlane 1.5.0.
Update instructions for 1.5.0 and 1.5.1
It is very important that you follow the update instructions that were added to the wiki. If you used InvoicePlane before there are some steps to follow to migrate all data and configuration.
If you upgrade InvoicePlane from version 1.5.0 to 1.5.1 open the
ipconfig.phpfile with a text editor and remove the hash (
#) in the first line so the first characters of the file are
<?php. Also, change your database password just to make sure that it is safe. Sorry for the inconveniences.
