OpenProject 5.0.19 has been released. The release contains several bug and security fixes.

We recommend the update to the current version.


The release of OpenProject 5.0 at the end of 2015 has brought many significant improvements and fixes. The usability benefits from the entirely new implementation of the work packages view are the most notable changes. But even more importantly than the visible modifications have been the program’s improvements under the hood. With using AngularJS for our frontend development we come closer towards a single page application.
Our aspiration is to develop the world’s most user friendly open source project management software. Over the last few months, we came to realize that we would best serve this ambitious goal by a somewhat more focused approach. We believe that the core team of developers serve OpenProject best by focusing on what we are really good at: Developing new features for OpenProject as well as working with clients to customize OpenProject to their needs. In the future, we want to focus on these two things.
That is why we have been looking for a partner to provide support services for OpenProject. With ionas, a Mainz-based IT service provider, we have found a company that does not only have a great deal of OpenProject expertise and knowledge but that also shares our values and open source enthusiasm. Beginning June 1, ionas will be our technical partner for the OpenProject installation services.
ionas – providing services to German and English-speaking current OpenProject users and to-be users– assists in installing OpenProject on cloud- or self-hosted servers and helps integrate OpenProject in existing systems (i.e., LDAP/Active Directory). Another focus area of ionas in the next months will be to provide upgrade support for OpenProject 4 users.
For prospective users, ionas also provides an interesting alternative option of getting OpenProject up and running. The ionas-Server Small Business is a convenient package solution combing server hardware, a software package and the implementation service. A fully functional OpenProject implementation in addition to some convenient additional services such as VPN and an automatic backup are part of the ionas-Server’s software bundle. The server’s configuration is done via remote access by ionas and OpenProject is ready-to-use within hours.
By partnering with ionas, we hope to facilitate the deployment of OpenProject in organisations and workgroups that do not have the luxury of having a tech-savvy IT-guy among themselves. ionas is the one-stop-shop that takes care of all the activities required to install and ready OpenProject for immediate effect on how you plan, carry out and evaluate projects.
More information on the installation and upgrade services provided by ionas can be found in the installation services section.
