CS-Cart 2.0 Beta is released

By Michael Gunin, Tuesday, November 25th, 2008 in CS-Cart releases

We are proud to announce the release of CS-Cart 2.0 Beta!

CS-Cart 2.0 is a significant breakthrough in ecommerce software solutions. It provides a new level of flexibility and freedom of total control.

Version 2.0 is a turning point in CS-Cart development techniques. Here we present a completely different approach to the software architecture and design, and at the same time stick to the rules of simplicity and usability.

The admin panel of the new version is completely redesigned. The CS-Cart Basic skin (storefront) is updated and several new skins are added (not available in the beta version). Moreover, CS-Cart 2.0 is enhanced with a great number of popular features. Here are some of them:

- Layout block manager
- Visual template editor
- Visual language variables editor
- Tags
- Advanced newsletters
- Product filters
- Attachments
- Polls
- SMS notifications
- Canada Post
- Search filters
- Admin action log

Definitely, the best way to learn more about the software is to take a test drive! We would like to invite you to take part in beta testing CS-Cart 2.0 and inform us about the found bugs.

CS-Cart 2.0 Beta is to be used only under new terms and conditions. The main conditions are:

1. CS-Cart 2.0 Beta should be used for evaluation purposes and is not recommended for production environments. This version is for personal use only. It is strictly prohibited to pass CS-Cart 2.0 Beta to a third party for any purpose.

2. CS-Cart 2.0 Beta can be used only until the stable version of CS-Cart 2.0 is released. After that, it is necessary either to purchase a CS-Cart license for the domain where CS-Cart 2.0 Beta is installed or delete all the copies of the software.

An e-mail notification about the official release of the stable CS-Cart 2.0 will be sent to those who downloaded the Beta version from our website.
