When you upgrade from one version of xTuple ERP to another, it is required that you upgrade the core xTuple software. For PostBooks® users, this means the core PostBooks® database must be upgraded. For commercial edition users, this means the core commercial database must be upgraded. Performing an upgrade to the core software is a prerequisite for moving from one version of xTuple ERP to the next. xTuple provides assistance with this process through its XTN (xTuple Network) service.
The xTuple Desktop client software runs on Windows (XP and up), Mac OS X (Snow Leopard and up), and Linux (recent version of Ubuntu, RHEL, or CentOS recommended).
It is not always necessary, however, to upgrade the extension packages or other applications which operate with xTuple. That's where this compatibility matrix comes in. This matrix is designed to help ensure your extension packages and other applications are compatible with the xTuple ERP version you are currently running—or upgrading to. The following packages and applications are covered by this document:
- Operating Systems
- xTuple Connect
- Wholesale Distribution
- Time and Expense
- Project Accounting
- Enhanced Commissions
- QuickStart Wizard
- Desktop Package
- Fixed Assets
Info: If you are a third-party application developer and would like to have your application information added to this compatibility matrix, we invite you to help us keep this matrix up-to-date.
xTuple ERP will run on a wide range of different operating systems and platforms. It is not possible for us to test every single combination. However, the following list offers basic guidelines for those preparing to install or upgrade xTuple ERP.
- Windows - Windows 7 - Windows 10 are widely used and supported, though earlier versions may also work. Our in-house builds run on Windows 7.
- Linux - Ubuntu and Fedora are widely used, though other flavors of Linux may also work. Beginning with xTuple ERP version 4.10.0 (not yet released), we know Ubuntu 14 (Trusty) is required. 4.10.0 as distributed by xTuple will not run with Ubuntu 16 (Xenial) because of library incompatibilities; APT packages of PostBooks probably will run but were not created by xTuple, so support is not guaranteed. Earlier 4.x versions run on Ubuntu 12 through 14. We started releasing both 32-bit and 64-bit versions with 4.9.0.
- Mac - Beginning with xTuple ERP version 4.10.0, we require OS X 10.7 or later. Prior to version 4.10.0, a wider range was supported.
xTuple Connect is a commercial application which operates with all xTuple ERP Editions. The xTuple Connect application consists of two parts: a GUI client and an extension package (xtbatch). The xTuple Connect GUI client version will always be the same as the xTuple Connect extension package version.
|xTuple Connect||xTuple ERP Version||Updater|
* Connect 3.6.1 cannot be installed for the first time on xTuple ERP 3.8.x. Upgrading your existing xTuple Connect to 3.6.1 is supported.
xTuple ERP runs on the open source PostgreSQL database. As a general rule, xTuple ERP supports multiple versions of PostgreSQL. However, there are some limitations and it's important to make sure your PostgreSQL and xTuple ERP versions are in sync.
PLEASE NOTE: Beginning with xTuple ERP version 4.9.0, all supported PostgreSQL versions must have the plv8 extension added to them. For more information, please see our detailed instructions on installing plv8.
