OrangeHRM Announces the release of Open Source 4.0

We are excited to announce the new version of OrangeHRM Open Source 4.0 will be released in the middle of June, 2017.

One of the main highlights of this new version is the opening up of 40+ REST APIs. These REST APIs are for the Admin, PIM, Leave & Time modules respectively.

What are the aims of 4.0?

Our primary objective for 4.0 is to empower our developer community to build applications that can enrich our ecosystem. We already have a couple of the beta testers who are creating applications that will interface with third party tools.

OrangeHRM app store was created for our community members who would like to monetize their applications”. Said Sujee Saparamadu CEO and Founder of OrangeHRM “ With a 3.5 Million user base we will be able to market these applications that will enhance the productivity of our clients.”

How can you learn more?

There have already been a number of sample applications created for our community. You can download the sample app today from here and try it out for yourself - if you have any feedback or questions, get in touch. These sample app’s show how to use the REST APIs.

OrangeHRM has also been made available for “api-client-PHP” which eases the use of these REST APIs.  You can download the User guide for the API’s here.

This is really exciting for us, and our community. Having a feature rich OrangeHRM API set is like giving an empty canvas to a painter - the opportunities for creativity are endless. Said Lawrence Knowles Chief Product Officer at OrangeHRMI am expecting our community to build and develop some fantastic applications that will revolutionize the HR domain.”


We are continuously in the process of updating the REST APIs, and we will be updating our community with the latest progressions on our blog, so keep your eye out for further news.

Sujee Saparamadu Founder & CEO of OrangeHRM speaks about what to look out for in Release 6.2….

Release 6.2 marks an historic point in the history of OrangeHRM with massively enhanced UX and modern look and feel, designed to serve global enterprises with up to 25,000 employees.

Performance and security is always at the forefront of any organization, which is why major work has taken place to ensure users can reap the benefits of Release 6.2 knowing they are using the safest and highest performing HR Management solution.

Over 20% of the OrangeHRM client base are happily using Release 6.2, with more clients in the upgrade process! Release 6.2 is also being used by our OrangeHRM sales team in demonstrations and to date has been very well received. We always try and trial our new releases internally before releasing to our clients in order to gain feedback and continue to deliver a product people want and enjoy using.

Going forward we have an exciting roadmap of new functionality for Release 6.3, which is due out at the end of June.

In Release 6.3 you can look forward to fantastic new features such as a travel and expenses tracker with real-time foreign exchange rates, executive salary restrictions and a clever wizard to create mandatory fields. Plus, much much more – remember to keep an eye out on our blog for further updates on what’s coming up!
