November 2020 in iDempiere

November 2020 was a great month in the iDempiere project! There were many contributions from our supportive community. Here we highlight those contributions that were outstanding.

The project is now on a stabilization stage because of the upcoming release, not many new features have been added during this month because the focus is to assure the stability and performance of the soon-to-be new stable version. Thanks to all the community for the help in this process, and especially, to Carlos Ruiz and Heng Sin Low for the incredible amount of effort you put into making this possible.

Additionally, during November two test days were successfully held, 13 participants from around the globe created 51 test scenarios to help to stabilize the upcoming 8.2 release.
