Yes, they should still be usable with 1.5.x. For 1.6, I've done mostly a
rewrite of inventory tracking and adjustments. Possibly, with 1.6, the
scripts might not work anymore. However, 1.6 isn't released yet. We can
test and work on the scripts at the time you want /need to migrate to 1.6.
Also, I'm not currently aware of a better way to upload inventory (although
there's an inventory upload possibility through "Goods & Services" >
"Import inventory"; I'm not aware that this will define new part numbers
for you during upload...).
