@ Daniel, thank you for your kind words. We are looking forward to helping drive this fabulous open source project forward. Open Cart is a brilliant example of cool code from committed developers. The addition of Waseem and Shayne should take this project to new heights. Very exciting times, indeed.

@Daniel & Pete,

Thanks for the intro, I for one can't wait to get cracking on the project - OpenCart has to be a no-brainer for anyone looking for a simple yet powerful e-commerce engine. I'm honoured to be involved!

A development roadmap would be a good start, as would an indication of whether any of the modifications / contributions will be integrated into the core in 1.2+

Fantastic News. Great to hear Open Cart is going "out there" where it should be.

I agree with this.
This is the best news since the release of 1.x, but I hope it won't get down the route like Magento or Virtuemart who have a lot fluff built in that I can't remove easily when I don't need it.

Hi,
I Agree with nde and jty !
Opencart must stay easy to use, stable and easy to manage ..... Like now.
Not another complicated and unasable cart like Magento or similar !

Couldn't agree more, opencart is a lean mean shopping machine and its up to us to keep it that way and without bloat.
