Compatibility Matrix

 

Overview

When you upgrade from one version of xTuple ERP to another, it is required that you upgrade the core xTuple software. For PostBooks users, this means the core PostBooks database must be upgraded. For commercial edition users, this means the core commercial database must be upgraded. Performing an upgrade to the core software is a prerequisite for moving from one version of xTuple ERP to the next. xTuple provides assistance with this process through its XTN (xTuple Network) service.

The xTuple Desktop client software runs on Windows (XP and up), Mac OS X (Snow Leopard and up), and Linux (recent version of Ubuntu, RHEL, or CentOS recommended). The xTuple Mobile Web client is optimized for the Chrome browser.

It is not always necessary, however, to upgrade the extension packages or other applications which operate with xTuple. That's where this compatibility matrix comes in. This matrix is designed to help ensure your extension packages and other applications are compatible with the xTuple ERP version you are currently running—or upgrading to. The following packages and applications are covered by this document:

If you are a third-party application developer and would like to have your application information added to this compatibility matrix, we invite you to help us keep this matrix up-to-date.

xTuple Connect

xTuple Connect is a commercial application which operates with all xTuple ERP Editions. The xTuple Connect application consists of two parts: a GUI client and an extension package (xtbatch). The xTuple Connect GUI client version will always be the same as the xTuple Connect extension package version.

xTuple ERP Version
    4.4.x-4.7.x 4.3.x 4.2.x 4.1.x 4.0.x
xTuple   Connect 3.7.3 x        
  3.7.2 x x x    

 

3.7.1       x x
  3.7.0         x

* Connect 3.6.1 cannot be installed for the first time on xTuple ERP 3.8.x. Upgrading your existing xTuple Connect to 3.6.1 is supported.

 

xTuple Supported PostgreSQL Versions

xTuple ERP versions prior to 3.0 are not supported on PostgreSQL 8.3.x. Also, as of xTuple ERP 3.8.x, versions of PostgreSQL prior to 8.4.x are not supported. If you are running xTuple 2.3.2 or older, you should not be running on PostgreSQL 8.3 or newer.

ALSO NOTE: Users who load backup files (e.g., empty.backup, quickstart.backup, and demo.backup) should be advised that as of xTuple 3.2.2 those backup files are being dumped from a PostgreSQL 8.3 database. That means the backups must also be loaded on PostgreSQL 8.3 (or higher) to avoid backward incompatibility problems.
