Mustangproject 2.11.0

Mustangproject is a tool to write, validate and parse Factur-X/ZUGFeRD and (CII)XRechnung e-invoices. It is a (permissive) open source cross platform command line tool and a Java library. The command line tool e.g. allows to extract and combine PDF and XML from/to Factur-X as well as validate e-invoices, convert XML to HTML or migrate from ZUGFeRD v1 to v2. The library additionally allows to generate the XML to be embedded either by implementing interfaces or actively creating objects.

2.6.023 Dec 2022 13:05 minor feature: Mustang 2.6.0 "Joyeux Noël", released December 23rd, 2022, supports trade parties without neccesarily providing a postal address, as allowed e.g. in France.

Due date and delivery dates are also no longer mandatory for credit notes. An issue in the deployment has been fixed (#297), Svante provided the hope of server based tests and weclapp-dev thankfully contributed the fix to another null pointer exception. Together with the fact that attempts to use the minimum profile would previously usually also be accompanied by nullpointers, one could almost say that this version comes with 20 less nullpointer exceptions :-)
