Release 3.1.0 of pretix

Sept. 10, 2019

Today, we are releasing pretix 3.1.0. This release includes a bunch of small features that we added in the last month. Big thanks go Bostjan Marusic, Maarten van den Berg, oocf, pajowu, saad91, Tobias Sundgren, and Ture Gjørup who contributed to this release. ❤️

pretix 3.1.0 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.

States in addresses

When entering an invoice address in a country where it is customary to include the state, territory or province in postal addresses, pretix will now automatically show a selection of states for the user to choose from. If the invoice address is required, this will also be an required field. However, it will automatically go away and not annoy people in other parts of the world.

Currently, we will show this field in Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Malaysia, Mexico, and the US. If you think your country should be on that list, please get in touch.

Shared reports

We added a new pretix Enterprise plugin "shared reports" that allows you to share a simple overview report of your ticket sales and availability with people who don't have full backend access but still should know, such as your venue or any business partners.

External checkout and payment redirection

We extensively improved our API endpoints that you can use to create orders within pretix. At the same time, we introduced some new parameters that allow you to ask pretix to redirect users to a different page after successful payment.

This way, it is now possible to build your own checkout process completely and just use pretix for payment processing. You can even choose to not show pretix to your customers at all and just use it as a ticketing backend.

WebAuthn

We ported our two-factor authentication to support hardware tokens via WebAuthn instead of U2F. All your keys are still working, but they now work in Microsoft Edge, many more Firefox versions, as well as most mobile browsers, too.
