CS-Cart 3.1 will not be released. Instead it is named CS-Cart 4.0 Its accessible in labs.


Then I am very disappointed in 4.0. No new significant features to justify the upgrade. I have been following the labs for months and keep waiting for something exciting to show up. Once again, it just looks like a repackaged merger of Pro and Ultimate on top of a new CSS framework. Same old addons and functionality. I hope they are hiding all the good stuff to show us before it is released :)

I hope you are correct, but in the past the labs has matched the final release functionality very closely.

You guys are relentless and have obviously never done software development!

First off, I'd much rather they do it right and take a while longer than generate crap.

Second, the upgrade for 2.0 didn't come until 2.0.8. No one every committed to when an upgrade would be available for 3.0, but everyone has assumed it would be 3.0.2. Personally, until 3.0.x is stable, I think an upgrade would be a waste of time and energy because no one's going to take a stable, running business and upgrade to an unstable version of software. At least no one who runs a real business would.

Give them a break. You think they're not working hard to get you reasonable software in a reasonable time frame? A new major version of software is a BIG deal. Focus should be on getting it stable and bugs fixed, then provide an upgrade path.

Lets say upgrade is available in 3.0.2. My personal approach would still be to wait till about 3.0.4, then do the upgrade to 3.0.2, 3.0.3 and 3.0.4. My expectation is that by that time, things should be production-ready to run a businesses storefront.

Breathe....


I've just read what you posted RE: v4 in different threads and now reading this post from last year. I have done all of these upgrades and am now at 3.0.6 (what a headache so far).
What is your advice regarding jumping up and into V4 from 3.0.6 ....should i launch my 3.0.6 and make some income instead of dinking around with V4 upgrade, and just wait on upgrading...keep my currently working great addons.... untill next year when V5 comes out? or should i just revert to the 2.x that i've never seen and be a happy camper?

First rule I use is'if it ain't broke don't fix it. As a merchant your business is NOT constantly upgrading software, but rather running your business. If history is any indicator, it will take 4-5 releases of V4 before it is commercially viable. Personally, my site is still at V2.2.5 which is quite stable and does everything I need it to do. Yes, there are a few quirks/issues to work around but that's measured in minutes or seconds, not days.

As a developer, I invested weeks of work into V3, only to have to throw it all away after a few months. Certainly won't invest that kind of unpaid time in V4. I may be slow but I do learn my lessons well.

If you're happy with your 3 store and it's ready, just launch. You will learn loads .. which you can use building your store in 4 (assuming you'll want to upgrade).

Thanks you guys for the input of experience! It makes sense as well, like all new software and or technologies, its a good idea to wait through a couple of versions and bug fixes before attaining it as a useful tool. I'm going to stick with what I have worked with so far and GO CS-CART make it bigger better, faster, secure, and work out the bugs and make this package WORK!
