Deprecation of compatibility mode for ERS/BVR payment slip

Written for OpenERP Swiss Localization by Nicolas Bessi - Camptocamp on 2014-04-02

Dear community,

In order to allows a proper evolution of Swiss localization, the compatibility mode of ESR/BVR payment slip report will be removed from "l10n_ch_payment_slip" module.

Presently there is two models that allow to print ESR/BVR:
- The invoice model that uses bvr.mako and is the compatibility mode.
- The move line model that uses multi_bvr.mako and allows support of multi-payment terms .

The support of the report on invoice model and the use of bvr.mako is deprecated and will be removed till the end of may 2014.

This will not remove any functionality and the end user will still be able to print ERS/BVR from the invoice.

Nevertheless customization of bvr.mako should be ported into multi_bvr.mako.
You may also adapt any other piece of code that called or refer to the invoice ESR/BVR report.

We apologies for the inconvenience this evolution may cause, but it is a mandatory step for a better integration of the localization.

Dear community,

In order to face the future with serenity, important changes have been made in swiss localization addon in version 7.

The swiss localization is probably one of the oldest localization of OpenERP. It exists since version 3.4 of (TinyERP) OpenERP.
The quality and the monolithic aspect of the l10n_ch addon code will not allows us to face tomorrow changes, needs and adoption of new payment/interbanking standards by Switzerland Financial institutes.

So majors refactoring of the modules have been made:

- l10n_ch_base_bank: Technical module that introduces a new and simplified version of bank type management
- l10n_ch_bank: List of swiss banks

- l10n_ch_dta: Support of dta payment protocol (will be deprecated end 2014)
- l10n_ch_payment_slip: Support of ESR/BVR payment slip report and reconciliation. Report refactored with easy element positioning and big triming of obsolete code.
- l10n_ch_sepa: Alpha implementation of PostFinance SEPA/PAIN support will be completed during 2013/2014

The modules will be soon available on OpenERP swiss localization on launchpad:
