Release 1.17.0 of pretix

July 8, 2018

Today, we are releasing the next monthly release of pretix. pretix 1.17 again is a mini-release with only a few number of changes, as we're preparing a big change to the way payments work for next month. Big thanks go out to Dimas Rivas, Pernille Thorsen, and Tobias Kunze, who contributed to this release. ❤️

pretix 1.17.0 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.

Manual payments

We've added a new core plugin, called "Manual payments". This adds a payment method that you can configure all on your own to match your specific process if you want to process payments manually, e.g. in cash in advance or via an external invoicing service. You can specify how the payment method should be called in the checkout process and you can add your own texts that will be shown to the customer during checkout.

  • You can now enter a minimum/maximum amount for most payment providers.

  • You can now specify an email address that should receive all outgoing emails in Bcc.
