Version 0.9 of the e-invoice validator software "ZUV" will be released on Tuesday,
March 24, between 3 and 4pm CET. The free download will be available from
it's Github site, https://github.com/ZUGFeRD/ZUV/releases .

The new version supports the new versions of the e-invoicing standards
Factur-X 1.0.05 and ZUGFeRD 2.1, which will be released by their respective
organizations on the same day.

"Validators" software to syntactically check sample files, are important for formats like
Factur-X/ZUGFeRD because they substitute interoperability tests with recipient software.
Sample files can be tested once with the validator and do not have to be tested
against multiple pieces of recipient software.

Furthermore, e-invoice validators can often automatically check the invoices by
re-caculating the amounts.

The free open-source validator "ZUV" already exists since 2017, but it was updated,
enhanced and already used systematically in the review process of the release of ZUGFeRD 2.1,
that is why it is available from day one. Further details on the changes in this version can be
obtained from https://github.com/ZUGFeRD/ZUV/blob/master/History.md .

About ZUV

On 2017-07-24 "ZUV" ("ZUGFeRD and VeraPDF") was first released on https://github.com/ZUGFeRD/ZUV/
from the makers of the open-source Java ZUGFeRD library Mustangproject.
The platform independent tool validates ZUGFeRD 1 und 2.1/Factur-X 1.0.05,
does not require internet connectivity and may be used, customized, and integrated
for free even in commercial software.

A embedded Open-Source PDF/A Validator from the Open
Preservation Foundation, VeraPDF, as well as the official ZUGFeRD Schema- and
Schematron files are used in the technical core of ZUV.

ZUV can e.g. be used in the invoice ingesting workflows as well as on servers for
automated software builds and tests.
E.g. the online interface of the "ZUGFeRD Community"
on https://www.zugferd-community.net/de/open/validation uses ZUV to perform
it's validations.

About Factur-X/ZUGFeRD

Factur/X-ZUGFeRD are de facto identical, open European e-invoicing standards.
They embeds machine readable UN/CEFACT XML-invoice files in human
readable PDF files and can be used in B2B and B2C and, due to their compliance to
Directive EU/2014/55 and EN16931, B2G invoices.

The e-invoicing format ZUGFeRD 2.1 will be published by the "Arbeitsgemeinschaft fuer wirtschaftliche Verwaltung e.V." (https://www.awv-net.de/)
on March 24, 2020. At the same day the french
"Forum National de la Factur Electronique" (http://fnfe-mpe.org/)
will issue their updated Factur-X 1.0.05.

So far, the "french edition" Factur-X 1.0 and the "german" ZUGFeRD 2.0 were, despite
their different version numbers, technically but not chronologically synchronized.

ZUGFeRD 2.1 now also supports the filename factur-x.xml for the embedded XML.
This way, ZUGFeRD 2.1 and Factur-X 1.0.05 are so similar that they
are virtually indistinguishable.
