CS-Cart 2.2.5 Released

By Konstantin Molchanov (CS-Cart team), Thursday, June 21st, 2012 in CS-Cart releases, News and announcements

Good day!
CS-Cart 2.2.5
We are happy to announce that a new minor CS-Cart version has been released.

CS-Cart 2.2.5 is planned to be the last release in the 2.2.x branch. From this release on we are fully switching to branch 3.x.

This is a bug fix release (changelog). So if you plan to stick with the CS-Cart 2.2.x branch, upgrading to 2.2.5 will be essential.

Apart from the bug fixes the latest Twigmo and Searchanise add-ons are also included.

It will be possible to upgrade CS-Cart 2.2.5 (actually, only its database) to the latest CS-Cart 3. The upgrade tool (we are still working on) will work for both versions 2.2.4 and 2.2.5 because there is no difference in their database structure.

Get the New Version

In order to get a distribution package of CS-Cart 2.2.5, please submit a ticket in your personal Help Desk account. UPD: CS-Cart 2.2.5 is available for download for all valid license holders. If you are CS-Cart license owner with an active upgrade subscription, you will find the installation archive in the File Area of your Help Desk account.

An existing CS-Cart 2.2.4 installation can be upgraded to version 2.2.5 via the Upgrade center in the admin panel. If you are new to this process, please refer to the detailed upgrade guide in our Knowledge base or in a video tutorial on our official YouTube channel. Please note that the upgrade may not be available in your CS-Cart admin panel for up to 48 hours (we limit the download number from our server within this period).

Stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter to get the latest CS-Cart news.

Updated Design Services by CS-Cart

Design Services

 
Greetings,

Today I would like to talk about design.

For most people design and all things related are rocket science, and leading a design project is like first landing on the Moon – an unprecedented, unknown, unclear and incomprehensible journey. Still, it is hard to deny that in a modern world design has become the driving force for business industry, the basis for innovation and a strong competitive advantage. Design creates, promotes, develops and guides a product. The risky Moon landing is no longer an option but a vital necessity.

«Where can I order design for my website? How much will it cost? What steps are there in the design process? What do I need to have to start?» – we know that sometimes even easy questions like these can turn into hard obstacles delaying getting new design. That is why we have updated the Design Services section on our website to make selecting the right service easier and ordering it faster. The latter is achieved by an automatically generated questionnaire specific for the chosen service. The questionnaire is short but covers the most important topics. The answers form the initial design request and help us understand client needs better.

Anna Belozerova,
Head of Design Department:

«We are absolutely sure that design is more than a fancy «image» to decorate a website. We believe it is the driving force of your business. Design determines how interesting, easy and comfortable it will be for the customers to visit your online store. Design defines the style, structure and the very functioning of an online store, it creates an impression and controls it. Keeping that in mind we create functional and unique designs for our clients every day. Our team sees every new project as a challenge, an opportunity to prove the essential role that design plays in your business success, and that the most profitable investment is investment in design.»

When ordering a design project it’s all about right timing, clear vision of the project routine and understanding how the total cost is built. The updated design services take care of all these things. Now working on a project is simple and plain for both parties. We hope you will be able to find the perfect solution to meet your budget and goals right on our site.
