RE: Odoo versionsby "Yves Le Doeuff - Alliasys" <firstname.lastname@example.org> - 19/06/2020 18:07:36
Thank you all for your answers.
It is our intention to participate in the development of Odoo with our modest means.
But for now, we have two programmers who are in the process of discovering the Odoo framework.

Objet : Re: Odoo versions
additionally, my 2 cents here
1. I noticed that there are many modules that are still created and updated for version 12 while version 13 has already been released for more than 6 months now.
Livin more than 20 year in ERP space, it is always a trade off between stability and features and functions beeing new and inspiring.
We at IT IS favour a LTS like concept as ubuntu does, which is not in odoo officially. It is an open secret also, that odd odoo release numbers are more "introductory" releases and "even" releases stabilize the efforts.
2. Is it due to the time necessary to do the migration to the new version since I suppose it is a lot of work ?
Yes, it is work, which depends on the changes. Between odoo 10 and odoo 11, there was a switch of the underlying python version, which took more effort, for example. But it depends on the particular module, also since some are pretty dormant, while others are just fancy and loaded with change right now.
3. Is it intentional to stay on an older version (therefore more stable) or are odd versions abandoned in favor of even versions ?

I am a beginner in the Odoo world and I am not sure this is the right place for this topic, so excuse me if not.
My question is :
I noticed that there are many modules that are still created and updated for version 12 while version 13 has already been released for more than 6 months now.
Is it due to the time necessary to do the migration to the new version since I suppose it is a lot of work ?
Is it intentional to stay on an older version (therefore more stable) or are odd versions abandoned in favor of even versions ?
I should point out that I am in France and that my remark apply in particular to the French localization.
Again, this is not a complain for upgrades that does’nt come fast enough because I know it’s a big work and each contributor do his best but I would like to ajust my company’s strategy for my customers and know which version of Odoo should we put forward.
