Hi all,

I have switched our systems to ledgersmb from sql-ledger due to their
poor community support. I am using 1.1.12 of smbleder. I think this
project is a great idea.

I would like to know whether there will be an upgrade script from 1.1.12
to 1.3 when it comes out?

Hmmm probably not.

upgrades? I would not want to stick to a project where there is a
regular break in version and upgrades are not possible.

Perfectly understood. 1.1 and 1.2 both are difficult releases. Mainly because we could only fix them so much as they are based on what is fundamentally broken and insecure code (SQL Ledger).

1.3 is the first major step toward breaking away from that code base with already a ton of work being done on it.

Here is what I can say:

You like will *not* be able to upgrade from 1.1 to 1.3.
You can upgrade from 1.1 to 1.2
You "might" be able to upgrade from 1.2 to 1.3
You "will" be able to upgrade from 1.3 to 1.4
You "will" be able to upgrade from 1.4 to 1.5 (likely 2.0)

I know this is frustrating in the younger versions, but we didn't really have much of a choice but to break compatibility if we wanted to actually build sane software.

i.e drupal is a
case in point. This is ok for a intranet cms system but not for our
financial system.
