    We are extremely excited to share the ALPHA release of the new Invoice Ninja!

    https://invoiceninja.github.io/selfhost.html

    Note: this app must be setup separately from the current app, we’ve built a migration tool to enable transferring your data and settings between the apps. We will continue to support the current version of the app but will be renaming it to Invoice Ninja (Legacy) to try to limit confusion.

    – Android App: https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.invoiceninja.app
    – iOS App: https://testflight.apple.com/join/MJ6WpaXh
    – API Docs: https://app.swaggerhub.com/apis/invoiceninja/invoiceninja
    – Demo: http://invoiceninja.com/demo

    IMPORTANT: This is an early release of the app, we do NOT recommend using the app in production just yet. We plan to release beta and stable releases in about three and six months time. Our long term plan is to provide a superset of all of the features the current version of the app provides.

    The best place to provide feedback is on Slack: http://slack.invoiceninja.com
    Note: make sure to update to the latest self-host version (v4.5.18) to see the migration option.

    Will PHP 7.4 be officially supported? Right now invoices on IN 4.x cannot be viewed in 7.4.

    #24261

    Yes, we will support PHP v7.4 with the new version of the app

    Hey, guys,

    Wow what a fabulous job, what a great team!

    Can’t wait to discover and test this new version.

    I had already turned the news up last year:
    – Did you by any chance include the dates in “paid to date” (see picture).

    https://www.casimages.com/i/200403084942808677.png.html

    Indeed, I was saying that the invoice date and the payment date are always different! In Europe, the date of payment must also be mentioned on the invoice.

    Is it possible to add it please as shown by the capture ?

    Thank you very much.
    Chahid

    It may be possible with a custom design

    Is there any way we can get a cost and sale field in the product description? It would be nice to see what my profit break down is per item and per invoice.

    Good morning, if I download the currnet 5.04 release (not the source code!) – do I still to install using compiler install?

    With the release zip you shouldn’t need to use composer

    @hillel Coren: I downloaded the release zip, extracted and set webroot to /public/ folder. Instead of showing the setup I get a login screen. Is the webroot different to current stable 4.5 version?
    Are there alpha specific installation information available?

    If you have an existing database called ninja, this certainly could happen as the default database is ninja.

    You will need to create a database with a different name and update the .env file in the project root.

    Once that has been done, you could try running

    php artisan optimize

    Once done, you should be presented with a setup screen.

    I deleted the test database and run ‘php artisan optimize’

    I was looking into updating the InvoiceNinja package on Cloudron. Did I understand correctly that 5.x is not meant for production yet and we should continue to package the 4.x releases (so 4.6.0 is the latest now)?

    From the releases pages https://github.com/invoiceninja/invoiceninja/releases, it’s hard to make out that 5.x is actually alpha. I did manage to get it installed but everything looks like a mobile view even on desktop currently. It also asks for URL when logging in, not sure what that is. Is this thread the best place to report such comments?

    Thanks!

    As it says above… “IMPORTANT: This is an early release of the app, we do NOT recommend using the app in production just yet.”

    What’s the login for the demo?

    #24716

    Hmmm… there shouldn’t be a login, it’s a bug. I’ll work on a fix…

    A fix has been deployed, thanks for letting us know about the problem!

    Thanks for the great work,

    Will it be possible to pay more than one invoice at a time for one payment ?

    I do sell my services for another company for which I’m working on many projects. And for that, I’m producing many invoices for which they sometimes pay me with only one payment.

    As far as I know, it is not possible in v4.5.18 to add multiple due invoices in the payment page and pay them all at once

    And I can’t find how to do that in this alpha version.

    Thanks

    @alexgauvin yes we specifically handle this case now where a user can pay for multiple invoices in one transaction/payment.
