On 14 December 2010 Open e-PRIOR 1.1 was published on the website of the Open Source Observatory and Repository for European public administrations (OSOR.eu). Open e-PRIOR is a cross-border eProcurement solution developed by the European Commission (DIGIT) for the European Union Member State administrations, which can use it to exchange catalogues, orders, invoices and credit notes with their suppliers over the PEPPOL infrastructure.

Release 1.1 provides several new features, one of which is the possibility to force suppliers to send e-invoices (Thanks to Pieter Breyne). Other features are:

  • a new ‘Retrieve request’ web service allowing users to retrieve an XML version of any document stored in the system, as well as a full implementation of the submit and validate catalogue features (with email notification support to users)
  • partial support of the LIME profile (Send documents only) between lightweight clients and PEPPOL Access Points. More details on LIME profiles are available on the PEPPOL website.
  • updated test suite that integrates the new features mentioned above.

The full list of web services provided by Open e-PRIOR v1.1 is the following:

  • Submit Invoice *
