Custom 0.6

	custom is an e-commerce solution for small to medium-sized
	businesses that provides:
	- a customisable web front-end for customers and
	  Point-of-Sale staff to place orders
	- for warehouse staff to manage stock
	- for accountants and sales staff to manage and generate invoices
	- for purchasing managers to keep track of suppliers and
	  competitive pricing.



[The rest of the README.txt can be found in the top-level directory,
 it's getting a bit long i'd rather keep it short on this list so
 you don't get bored! ]

 Changes since last announcement:

 - use of the python-htmltmpl package to split out site HTML format
   from the content (very good system, htmltmpl).

 - the move to frame-based pages caused a bit of chaos: very nice but
   causes havoc with the fifty or so HTML links all needing their
   own target frames to be specified ...

 - new feature: Product Codes from suppliers can now also be stored
   on a per-product basis.

   WARNING: if updating from pre-0.5 to 0.6, you MUST make a backup
   of your MySQL database and then run the db/update1.sql script
   which will reformat your products into the new table format.
