[Dolibarr-dev] Dolibarr 6.0 freeze

Hi Dolibarr developers.

Time to start the beta of the next major version has come. The release candidate version should be ready for end of June, so as usual, we must start the beta period several weeks before, so now.

So, starting from next week-end, the beta period for 6.0 will be launched. No new features will be added from PR.

As usual, "started development" are allowed to be continued to be finished for final release. Work on not stable modules are also still opened because such modules won't be visible by end users.  Among works already started and that are qualified to continue to push non bug fixed PR, we may find:

- work on advanced accountancy (double party) module to finished/make stable changes done during development period,  

- new variant module

- work on look and feel standardization

- code to make online payment process standardized (this include work on module "stripe").

- translation changes

- changes required to allow package generations

After the freeze, new features will be suspended until the branch for 6.0 is created. Then merging PR for new features will be possible again into develop branch.

Also, architecture, re-engineering, or best practice code enhancements will be discarded during this period. Instead any help is welcome to fix all opened bug: See

More information on what a "freeze" mean:

Version 6.0 beta period should be shorter as usual. It has a very good compatibility behavior with external modules, so you can already check your external modules are still working with this version, even if freeze is done in few days only.

The Changelog into develop branch does not contains for the moment list of new features, but you can read to get information on what was changed and may need attention of external developers or upgraders.

Also, note that maintenance versions for branch 4 and 5 should be released soon to provide recent bug and security fixes available.
