In an effort to increase the stability of the final product, today we make publicly available the first release candidate for the next CS-Cart version 2.1.0. You’re welcome to either download CS-Cart 2.1.0 RC1 from our development server or test it online. No registration or login is required!
The release candidate is intended for community feedback and individuals who want to participate in QA process as well as reviewers who can get a first look at the upcoming CS-Cart 2.1.0 and its improvements. It is not recommended for production purposes, however.
CS-Cart 2.1.0 will contain a lot more features, bug fixes and changes than previous versions. New features that require feedback include:
- - Revamped checkout process, which is more user-friendly now. See it described and discussed at http://forum.cs-cart.com/showthread.php?t=16846
- - New tax calculation logic. Now taxes can be based on either the cost of individual products or the order subtotal. See it described and discussed at http://forum.cs-cart.com/showthread.php?t=16572
- - Improved order placement. We introduced the possibility to track and isolate incomplete orders to prevent unwilling inventory changing. See it described and discussed at http://forum.cs-cart.com/showthread.php?t=16180 .
CS-Cart 2.1.0 RC1 should provide a solid ground to report last-minutes bugs that need to be tackled before the final version is released. Please post them to our public bug tracker.
Final CS-Cart 2.1.0 is scheduled to be released in early August 2010.
