LightSpeed 3.5.4

The LightSpeed gurus at Xsilva have been working hard this week as this is the second update in less than two weeks. Version 3.5.4 brings many small fixes for issues that most probably didn’t even realize needed fixing but there are a couple of items worth noting.

I typically take Orders for non-inventoried items and LightSpeed clearly did not deal well with this. Attempts to change the status to Invoiced would always fail as the inclusion of items that could not be ordered seemed to really cause problems. This has finally been fixed and I look forward to testing this new functionality.

The addition of progress indicators shows that Xsilva is making efforts to make it’s program more responsive as well and this is a much appreciated change from the past, in which clicking a button would result in nothing happening for an extended period of time. I hope this trend continues.
