SalesAgility, the driving force behind SuiteCRM, has released SuiteCRM version 7.11.3. This release includes a number of bug fixes, security patches and enhancements.
SuiteCRM, the world’s preferred open source CRM is supported by it’s dedicated and talented community. These community members volunteer their time and skill to give back to the product so that everyone can benefit. In this release we received some fantastic contributions thanks to Urdhva Tech and other community members.
We’ve added a new field type which allows users to embed rich text or HTML content into their records. Additionally these can be added to the SuiteCRM generated PDF documents making your standard letters, quotes or invoices more attractive. This field can be added to any module via the Studio and Module Builder section of the admin panel.
This functionality was originally a plug-in developed by Urdhva Tech however at the request of our community they have contributed it to the core codebase.
Updated PDF Selector UI
Another contribution made by Urdhva Tech replaces the legacy popup PDF selector with the newer slicker modal style. This makes the layout more mobile responsive and looks great!
Something for the Developers…
Upgrading from CLI
Using RoboTasks you can update SuiteCRM without navigating through the web browser. This is very handy when requiring to upgrade a number of instances throughout your different environments.
A few more to highlight…
- ElasticSearch dependencies had been causing issues with shared hosting providers preventing users from running composer. We have removed those files from within ElasticSearch folders that caused the issue from the project’s dependencies.
- Inline editing of dates has been restored
- PDF Template Page Numbers and Checkboxes now render correctly in Report PDFs
