We are at Pro Version 5.0.49.0
What is the latest version and what are the major reasons to upgrade (features, bugs)?

By: SupportPosted on: Oct 9 2020 at 10:14:56 AM
Latest version is 5.0.85

5.0.50 fixed bug in shortage report where OnHand quantity could be reported incorrectly if an item existed in more than one place in the same BOM/Parts list.

5.0.51 Updated the MySQL Connector for connecting to MySQL databases v8 and above. Does not affect any Microsoft databases.

5.0.54 Improvement to the P&V Importer/restore (P&V, in case you don't know, is (was) a legacy product from another company that's no longer supported. We now allow users of those systems an easy migration path to MiniMRP)

5.0.55 Fixed bug where listing "Items By Category" failed if category name contained an Apostrophe/single quote.

5.0.57 When adding items to a customer order it could show a numeric ItemID rather than the actual part number. This corrected itself when the order was saved/refreshed but could still be confusing.

5.0.63 Added Job/Costing Ref to Purchase Order

5.0.64 Added report to group spending by Job/Costing Ref.

5.0.66 Added 'Comments/Notes' column to Onscreen Purchase order. (As 3rd row when printing)

5.0.70 Option to ' display' inside CSAS assemblies in OnScreen BOM.

5.0.71 Added a 'Note' column to on-screen customer order. (Displayed as 3rd row on printout).

5.0.72 Fixed bug introduced in 5.0.71 where Assembly Editor would show price column showing UOM (ie BOX) price rather than price each.

5.0.73 Added 'Tab Delimiter' option to CSV import (Useful for euro/nonEnglish locales where comma is used as decimal point)

5.0.75 Fixed rare bug in GoodIn process which only occurred if text in BIN column contained a apostrophe/single quote.

5.0.80 Fixed very rare bug in StockAdjust which only occurred if multiple users were adjusting the same item at the same time.

5.0.82 Fixed bug in shortage forecast which only affected MySQL databases (ie did not Default or MS SQL Datqbases)

5.0.83 Assembly costs could sometimes be calculated incorrectly if components on the assembly were supplied in different currencies. (Under some circumstances currency conversion would be done twice)

5.0.85 Exporting Purchase Orders to CSV now includes columns for PONumber, Vendor, PO Date. We don't support or recommend any accounting packages but, we hear, this layout is better for 3rd party tools that can import purchase orders into QuickBooks, and others.


There's quite a few revisions not mentioned above but those were minor updates/bug fixes that users wouldn't usually notice anyway.

After all that though please allow me to suggest that there's no reason to update unless you're actually experiencing a problem. If it works. Don't fix it.

Thank you for the information. Posting a change log for each update lets us know if there are new features that could be useful to us. (For example, our Accounting department might now be able to use the Export PO function thanks to the 5.0.85 changes.)
