What's new in Tryton 4.8
With the arrival of this new version, this will be the last one from Tryton to use Python 2, since the next versions will be written in Python 3, so if you use this application you should start preparing for the migration.
This process of migration from previous versions of Tryton is compatible with this new version, so the update should not represent a problem.
Additionally, in this version of Tryton the functionality gap between the native client and the web client is further reduced. The latter received special attention to correct many small details.
The administrator now you can reset a user's password with one click. The server generates a temporary password that is valid for one day by default and e-mails it to the user. The temporary password is disabled when the user registers a new password.
It is also possible to use this function for the administrator user through the trytond-admin command.
Addition existing protections against brute force attacks, the server also limits the number of attempts per IP network. The size of the networks is configurable.
As well added a new way to design dynamic relationships. At the moment, only the module benefits, but the next versions should see the generalization of this method.
The web and server clients have been updated
As is often the case, users install the client manually without going through a package manager (setup on Windows or package on macOS). They tend not to update this one when bug fixes are released. This new version includes an option (enabled by default) that periodically checks if the latest version is used. And if this is not the case, a link is displayed to download it.
Numeric values are now formatted using the user's language, but an input element is used for editing (which in some browsers may not be formatted correctly). The goal is to have a virtual digital keyboard on mobile phones.
The Cspell-checked ampos now they have browser fix enabled.
Widget buttons no longer enter the navigation pad. Its actions are all available via keyboard shortcuts.
The Mlist editing odo has been completely revamped, now the entire selected line can be edited. The focus is always on it, as long as it is invalid. Editing also ends when the user clicks out of sight.
