· 3 min read
Today we are releasing beta version of v7.2.0 for ERPNext and Frappe. Though this version does not have too many new features, still in terms of release process, it differs from others. There are two major difference in this release process. This time, we are releasing a beta candidate before releasing to master branch. That will give a space to community, to test the new features and the changes. Secondly, for the first time, we are releasing any version on the committed date. This ensures that we are also getting matured, along with ERPNext :)
Thanks to our awesome community members, who pushed us for the beta release. There are many contributions from the community in this version as well.
Following are some of the features/fixes in this version.
A dashboard with pre-defined filters in List / Report view, which is inspired by a DJ software. Thanks to Robert Schouten and Andrew Togniolo from Industrial Automation Group Pty Ltd for contributing the feature.
