Note: See the xTuple ERP Compatibility Matrix. You will need the following two PostgreSQL extensions:

  • plv8 - See our github wiki for more information on how to install plv8 and a blog post describing plv8 and why we introduced this new dependency.
  • ossp-uuid - If you built PostgreSQL from source code, you may have to rebuild it. Make sure to include the --with-ossp-uuid option for the configure command. See our instructions for building PostgreSQL for details.

Deployment Notes

If you are running version 4.4.0 or later of xTuple ERP, you will only need to apply one updater package to upgrade to the latest release. 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. See the FAQ on xTupleU if you have problems.

If you are upgrading from PostBooks to any of the other editions, you simply need to run the installation package for that edition. This will upgrade both your xTuple ERP version and edition. There is a special package for upgrading the Manufacturing Edition to Enterprise Edition.

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-4.12.0Alpha.gz upgrades a PostBooks database from anywhere >= 4.4.0 to 4.12.0-alpha
  • distribution-upgrade-4.12.0Alpha.gz upgrades the core (i.e. inventory) and distribution code (i.e. xwd) to 4.12.0-alpha
  • distribution-install-4.12.0Alpha.gz does a one-time install of tables, etc. for core and distribution at 4.12.0-alpha
  • manufacturing-upgrade-4.12.0Alpha.gz upgrades the core and manufacturing code to 4.12.0-alpha
  • manufacturing-install-4.12.0Alpha.gz does a one-time install of tables, etc. for core and manufacturing at 4.12.0-alpha
  • enterprise-upgrade-4.12.0Alpha.gz upgrades the core, distribution, and manufacturing code to 4.12.0-alpha
  • enterprise-install-4.12.0Alpha.gz does a one-time install of tables, etc. for core, distribution, and manufacturing at 4.12.0-alpha

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