Release Notes
xTuple ERP
Version 4.5.0 Final
June 9, 2014
==================================

These are the release notes for the 4.5.0 Final Release. Thanks
to all who contributed to make this release possible.

With the release of 4.5.0, we continue the process of revising the
naming conventions and the behavior of our core updater packages.
Our overall goal is to simplify the process of installing and
upgrading xTuple ERP databases.

Just as was true for the 4.4.1 release, you will only need to apply
one updater package to upgrade to 4.5.0--that is, assuming you are
already running on at least 4.4.0. The new updater packages are
designed to bring you all the way up to their version, no matter
what version (>= 4.4.0!) that you're on.

In 4.5.0 we've gone a step further: not only will a single package take
you through every *version* of the app, it will also install all the
constituent parts of your edition. Before now, if you wanted to do an
upgrade to the Manufacturing Edition, you would have needed to perform
the standard/dist upgrade and then the manufacturing upgrade. Not any
more. With the new process, only one upgrade package is needed for the
entire upgrade. No more upgrading the core and then upgrading the
related packages. Everything is upgraded all at once.

NOTE FOR DISTRIBUTION EDITION CUSTOMERS: The xwd package no longer
exists as a separate entity. All the functionality that was contained
in the xwd package is now included in the single "distribution" upgrade
or install package.

To be verbose about all of this:

postbooks-upgrade-450.gz will:
upgrade a PostBooks database from anywhere >= 4.4.0 to 4.5.0

manufacturing-upgrade-450.gz will:
upgrade the standard/dist (i.e., inventory code) to 4.5.0
upgrade the manufacturing code to 4.5.0

manufacturing-install-450.gz will:
do a one-time install of tables, etc. for standard (i.e., inventory code) at 4.5.0
upgrade the standard/dist (i.e., inventory code) to 4.5.0
do a one-time install of tables, etc. for manufacturing at 4.5.0
upgrade the manufacturing code to 4.5.0

distribution-upgrade-450.gz will:
upgrade the standard/ist (i.e., inventory code) to 4.5.0
upgrade the distribution (i.e., xwd code) to 4.5.0

distribution-install-450.gz will:
do a one-time install of tables, etc. for standard (i.e., inventory code) at 4.5.0
upgrade the standard/dist (i.e., inventory code) to 4.5.0
do a one-time install of tables etc for distribution at 4.5.0
upgrade the distribution (i.e., xwd code) to 4.5.0

PLEASE NOTE: Other packages, such as Advanced Commissions and Fixed
Assets, are currently remaining on their own release schedule and should
be installed as before.

If you are a Standard edition (now Distribution edition) customer who has not previously installed the XWD packages you must do so prior to migrating to Distribution edition 4.5.0.  The XWD functionality is included in the Distribution edition

The XWD package is a prerequisite to migrate from 4.4.1 to 4.5.0 using the distribtuion-upgrade-450.gz package.  Please perform the following procedure:

Once xTuple is migrated to 4.4.1 download and apply one these two packages:

1. xwd240.gz   - this installs XWD
2. xwd230to240.gx - this migrates XWD from the last release prior(2.3.0) to its being rolled into Distribution

Now you have satisfied the XWD prerequisite for migrating to Distribution 4.5.0.  Apply this package:

distribution-upgrade-450.gz

This migrates xTuple to Distribution Edition 4.5.0.  This is now no need to apply migration scripts for XWD as it is part of the Distribution Edition.

1) I cannot find xwd420.gz

1) I cannot find xwd420.gz anywhere

2) Do you really mean xwd230to240.gx

3) should this not be Step 2 then Step 1?

Hey Greg

we do need up to xwd240 on the commercerical download section. I have a 230 to 240, but no xwd240.gz.

The Key for anyone with an xwd install is get your xwd version migrated to xwd240 first, once done that will be the last time you have to update xWD. Until the download is fixed, you can email for a download link, or post something here and we will get you what you need.
