Re: Release 2.4.11

I have been keeping my repo up to date with fixes pushed to the FA repo. Does this release include changes not pushed to the repo?

Re: Release 2.4.11

No, all repo changes are included in this release up to today. You can see all the changes in the CHANGELOG.txt.

Re: Release 2.4.11

What I meant is enhancements since the last release also include in the FA repo or do I need to download the relase to get them? I've made changes to my copy of FA and I need to merge in this release.

Thanks Joe for all you do!

Re: Release 2.4.11

If you are up-to-date with the FA repo, you don't have to download and install the new release from SourceForge. You are already on this release.


Re: Release 2.4.11

Re: Release 2.4.11

Latest xampp install includes PHP 8.0.13.  Trying an install with this version of PHP (after going through to check and then database config screens) is giving me a blue window (not BSOD) in Frontaccounting and no way to proceed further.  Software installation seems to stall.  Anyone else experiencing this?

Re: Release 2.4.11

I tried to install 2.4.11 over 2.4.10
I keep getting the login screen every time I click on a menu item.

Put 2.4.10 back on and everything started working fine again.

I'd try to put a bug report on matis but I don't know how or have an account.
