Yesterday, ERPNext version 12.6.0 and Frappe 12.4.0 were released. They come with minor enhancements, many fixes, and some performance optimizations.

Enhancements

  • In salary structures, formulas weren’t allowed on total earnings in deduction table of salary structure. Now they are.

  • Now, Item Alternatives must have similar properties as original item. For example differences in serial number, batch number, stock item are not allowed. Show multiple manufacturers and part numbers in BOM Stock Calculated report.

Optimizations

  • Payment reconciliation was slow in cases where one payment entry was made against hundreds of invoices. Payment Reconciliation is 20x faster where large number of invoices are involved.  where large number of invoices are involved. 
  • Optimization of GL entry posting for Payment Entries. Payment entry submission and GL entry posting is now faster in case of hundreds of invoices.
