Hi guys

I have gathered in a compact list all CS-Cart Releases I could found, in order for me to identify Customers ability to Update (which versions, Prolonogate etc) cause in Blogs I needed always to search with Release.

I intend to write on the side the major milestones the next days, but feel free to fill in the blanks or make any suggestions.

I will try to keep this alive, and if Forum Admins find this informative they can pin it.

2.0 -> 15
2.1 -> 5
2.2 -> 5
3.0 -> 6
4.0 -> 3
4.1 -> 5
4.2 -> 4

4.3 -> 10

4.4 -> 3

4.5 -> 5

 

Version 2 was a very active version. Version 4.3 was also very active. Versions with Shortest Lifespan are 4.0. and 4.4

Also yearly activity is very interesting

2005 -> 1
2006 -> 3
2007 -> 3
2008 -> 2
2009 -> 11
2010 -> 7
2011 -> 6
2012 -> 5
2013 -> 5
2014 -> 9

2015 -> 6

2016 -> 7

2017 -> 6

 

 

2009 is the winner in this one, with most updates 11, followed by 2014 just 9

 

 

New! Versions per Month

 

5 -> January
4 -> February
7 -> March
6 -> April
7 -> May
6 -> June
6 -> July
3 -> August
7 -> September
4 -> October
10 -> November

November is the most active Month (10 versions) and then March, September and May are following with 7 versions.

Great list. You might want to mention a couple of things like 2.0.8 is the version where an upgrade from 1.3.5 is supported.
And a general note is that the last update in each version (2.2.5, 3.0.6) are the most stable versions of the product at that stage.
I've been doing this since 2009 and if I recall correctly, there have only been 2 other security alerts beside this latest one.

Good work.

Thanks guys for the remarks.

About the fututre Versions, i dont know if this is ok to put in the list, as they dont even know for sure when they are going to release a version for sure. We ve got numerous examples in previous Releases. I ll stick for now to the facts.
