Server tools: Modules prototyper
This module allows the Odoo administrator to prototype new features and export them as a module. Functional people can prepare the job for a developer who is left with the logic to implement in addition to everything the prototype does not export yet. This module is an effort from Savoir-faire Linux.
Web: Bypass readonly write restriction
This one is a very technical module, so stop reading if you're not interested in this topic. An annoying design decision was to discard values from readonly fields when writing changes in a view. This causes that if the values of that fields has been changed via an onchange, these changes will be lost. This module allows to save these fields explicitely allowing for that on the view. This module was also a perfect example of collaboration in the community made by Jonathan Nemry from Acsone and Pierre Verkest from Anybox.

Project: Recalculate project tasks
One of the pending areas in Odoo's Project Management is the possibility of some automation in planning. Now, thanks to Antonio Espinosa and his team in Antiun Ingeneria, we can have the first steps on this area, having the possibility of automatic recalculation of the dates when you change the project start/end, which in practical means the replanning capacity. This is the first step to other planned tasks in this area, like load/capacity planning, resource allocation, etc. Stay tuned.

Bank Statement Reconcile: Reconcile easily in bank statements your payment orders
This one comes from Holger Brunn from Therp, who has eased the reconciliation of payment orders when you only get in your bank statements the total amount of the operation, not a detail line by line. With this one, all payment orders will be checked for a coincidence on the total amount, and if it matches, then all the lines are proposed on the reconciliation wizard.
