Tryton is a three-tiers high-level general purpose application
under the license GPL-3 written in Python and using PostgreSQL as
database engine.

It is the core base of a complete business solution providing
 scalability and security.

Step by step Tryton is getting more features while sticking with the
central goal of providing a solid and powerful platform for creating
enterprise solutions. This new release comes with some exciting new
features. The most noteworthy are:

- Historical data handling:

  This feature can be enabled with a simple attribute on any
  model. Once activated the kernel transparently archives every
  modification made to the records of the model in a history
  table. Records are accessed in a standard way by passing a date in
  the context to get the record values relevant for that date. This
  makes looking up historical data easy.  The first module using this
  new functionality 'Account Invoice History' is described below.

- MacOS client (beta): The Tryton client is now available as a native
  MacOS application (for MacOS > 10.4).

- Email as attachment functionality for reports:

  In addition to being opened directly, each report can also be
  automatically added as an attachment to an email.  The user's email
  is used to open a Compose Email window with the report as an
  The subject, the recipient and other information are automatically
  filled in with respect to the current document.

- Online VAT checking:

  A new wizard allows the user to automatically check VAT numbers of
  with an online web service provided by the European VAT Information

- Integrated sale and purchase order handling.

  Cancellation of shipments or of draft invoices can be
  handled directly from the corresponding sale or purchase order. This
  is possible thanks to the back-propagation of information from the
  shipment or the invoice. This allows the sale or purchase manager to
  re-create necessary documents or to ignore cancellations.

This release also comes with lots of bug fixes for the server, client
and modules. As well as a split of the Spanish and Colombian
translations. As promised, this version will migrate automatically
databases created with Tryton 1.0, except for the completely new tax
rule system that need some parametrization.
