Release 3.6.0 of pretix

Feb. 17, 2020

Today, we are releasing pretix 3.6.0, featuring many small and large improvements throughout pretix itself and a number of old and new plugins. Big thanks go to Alexander Schwartz, András Veres-Szentkirályi, gnomus, Luka, Mie Frydensbjerg, pajowu, and Prokaj Miklós who contributed to this release. ❤️

pretix 3.6.0 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.

Attention: pretix 3.6 will (again) likely be the last release of pretix to support Python 3.5, so we encourage you to upgrade to Python 3.6 or newer before the next pretix release.

Payment provider: Adyen

We're happy to announce the release of a new payment provider plugin together with pretix 3.6.0. With Adyen, we've integrated a new payment gateway that supports virtually all well-known payment methods and is specifically tailored to larger customers.

pretixPOS improvements

Our pretixPOS cash register app now supports accepting payments for online purchases. For example, if someone shows up at your event without having paid their ticket order, you can now ask them to pay locally with cash or card and use pretixPOS to correctly issue a receipt and mark the online payment as completed.

Additionally, pretixPOS now supports accepting payments using Stripe Terminal. Right now, Stripe Terminal is only available in the US, but as soon as it's expanded to more countries, it will work with pretix out of the box as well.

New print modes for badges

If your event isn't large enough to require live printing of badges, one option to prepare them is to pre-cut sheets of badge inserts. When exporting badges in pretix, you can now select different types of paper and pretix will automatically correctly align multiple badges on one sheet – you just need to click "Print"!

Integration with Newsletter2Go

In analogy to our MailChimp integration, we created a new plugin that integrates with Newsletter2Go, a Berlin-based newsletter tool company.
