Hello,

 

Meet the new minor upgrade—CS-Cart and Multi-Vendor 4.3.7.

 

cxscytG.png

 

A major change in CS-Cart 4.3.7 is that the free version is no longer available. Here's the post explaining our decision: http://forum.cs-cart...nger-available/.

 

Also, the upgrade brings usability improvements for store administrators:

  • A customer can specify the email subject when sending it to the administrator through a form. Now you see clear and precise subjects of your customers’ email messages.
  • An admin can create statuses for shipments, so managers who usually process many orders don’t get confused about which order they packed, which shipped, and which still needs packing.
  • In Multi-Vendor, admins can enable a shipping method for all the vendors with a single click instead of assigning a shipping method to each vendor manually.
  • Store Import add-on doesn’t come with the installation package—admins download it free from the CS-Cart Marketplace. Distributing the Store Import add-on on the Marketplace allows us to devote more time to improving Store Import and release new versions of the add-on more often.
  • PayPal In-Context Checkout in enabled by default in new CS-Cart installations. If you haven’t enabled it before, it stays disabled after the upgrade via the Upgrade center.

See other changes in the changelog.

 

As always, look for detailed info about each change in our blog post.

 

How to Get the New Version

We’re distributing upgrade packages in batches, as always. License owners with active upgrade subscriptions will see upgrades available in their admin panels within a week. If you missed the upgrade availability notification, go to Administration → Upgrade Center and check for the upgrade.

 

If you’re new to CS-Cart, download the installation package and buy a license.

How come the removal of the free-mode comes bundled in a 4.3.7 "minor" release. That's a pretty big change considering anyone who wants to use the free mode is now stuck on 4.3.6.

 

What is the version control system you have in place because removing something that big shouldn't be in a 'patch' release.

Hello,

 

Version 4.3.7 is not a "patch", it's a minor release with minor improvements. Minor releases change the last (third) digit in the version number.

Hi

 

The download for "Store Import" (1.1.1) is for 4.3.6. When you try to install it says minimum 4.3.6 maximun 4.3.6

 

Hope this can be rectified soon

Hello,

 

Version 4.3.7 is not a "patch", it's a minor release with minor improvements. Minor releases change the last (third) digit in the version number.

 

If your version control system followed SemVer it'd be classed as a patch though.

 

What is your version control system that's in place because a change such as the removal of the free mode is not something that should have been released, in your case, a 'minor' release. That's pretty big functionality that should increment at least the first or second number, not third.

Curious how will affect the future of CS-Cart after discontinuing the free version. Recently (one of) the bigges competitors still offers their free version.

Free trial is just enough...maybe a procedural mistake was made in incrementing the version number but as one old expression says : The Horse is not evaluated by its Teeth number ;)

Best wishes

That depends.

 

If you do not have Innodb enabled on your server, the upgrade will not complete because the phinxlog table uses Innodb.  Real nice to have to enable Innodb for 1 single table.  Also, thanks for the heads up CSC.

 

If you have any core modifications, you will have to sort through the numerous files that were updated because apparently CSC does not know the exact files that you yourself modified so they just list them all.  Also, there is no file comparison still so again to CSC, thanks for making our upgrading more difficult.

 

That's all I can tell so far.

Thank you for mentioning SemVer. We're planing to reconsider our version control system in the foreseeable future.

Hi, We are using 4.3.5. Multivendor.

But we have changed some small things in the code.

 

Will the upgrade to 4.3.7. remove that and do we have to start all over again?

PayPal standard cannot seem to run correctly... In 436 was receiving correct IPN setting now no info is retrieved in to order details page.
 
Configuration
Auto Return: ON
URL: https://www.domain.com/index.php?dispatch=checkout.complete
Instant Payment Notification (IPN)
URL: https://www.domain.com/index.php?dispatch=payment_notification.return&payment=paypal
Message delivery: Enabled
 
Very strange thing that even with those settings above enabled in IPN History I see notification sent to
 
URL: https://www.domain.com/index.php?dispatch=payment_notification.paypal_ipn
HTTP response code 200
Where did the paypal got this URL from?

4.5.2 SP2
