Release 1.15.0 of pretix

May 3, 2018

Today, we are releasing the next monthly release of pretix. pretix 1.15 is exciting to us as it is our first release that significantly changes the looks of pretix for a long time. But don't worry, we also put in a number of great features! Big thanks go out to Claude, Felix Rindt, Jan Felix Wiebe, Jakob Schnell, Maarten van den Berg, Maarten Visscher, Mikkel Ricky, N Eliseo S Carranza, Pieter Roziers, Tobias Kunze, and Ture Gjørup, who contributed to this release. ❤️

pretix 1.15.0 is now available for installation via pip. The new docker images will appear on Docker Hub over the next few hours. All customers of pretix Hosted are already using the new version and do not need to take any action.

New colors

We're really excited that pretix finally gets a full, consistent color scheme. Previously, we used our two shades of purple and mixed them with the default colors of the Bootstrap framework which was okay, but far from great. In the last month, we integrated a new color scheme that we're really happy about. We kept our dark purple, but everything else changed. Here's how it looks:

Together with the color scheme, we also reworked some details of the user interface, such es contextual messages or details of our button style:

Badge printing

pretix is now able to print badges for your attendees. After enabling this new bundled plugin in the event settings, you can create multiple badge layouts for different products. The design is completely your choice – just as you know it from our ticket PDF editor.

Once designed, you can download badges for all attendees in bulk and print them. We're planning to implement live-printing with our check-in apps in a future version.

Data shredders

pretix does not allow to delete orders once they've been created, and this is on purpose, since pretix is supposed to be audit-proof when it comes to payments and accounting. However, many of you have been asking for a way to avoid keeping personal data of your customers on the server forever, and for a few years had the vision of a "data cleaner" tool that we never got around to build. Now, we finally built it and it is here to use.

The feature will become available once your event is over for more than 60 days. You can then select the types of data that you want to remove. For most types, a download will be offered before the deletion so you can keep the data in a safe place offline in case you still need it.
