Ok Guys,

Finally after many months a new version is nearly ready.

Please remember this is an alpha release and should not be used on a live site. Its also recommended to use php 7 or above.

Download
https://github.com/opencart/opencart/ar ... 0.0_a1.zip

Added
Bootstrap 4
Font Awesome 5
Jquery 3.3.1
Ability to have search engine index pages in multiple languages.
Added ckeditor back
Template code can now be edited before it processed using lamba functions.
All URL's generated in the catalog controller files now have language= appended to them.
SEO URL's can now replace any normal URL query and not just pre defind ones link product, category, manufacturer pages.
Added a CRON job system so no need for extension developers having to manually add this via the cpanel's.

Fixed
https://github.com/opencart/opencart/co ... a5b719d+34

Issues can be reported here:
https://github.com/opencart/opencart/issues

There are still many bugs to be fixed. If you find an issue please make a sure its not already been reported.

I also plan to add a GDRP and cookie policy system for EU users while its still in Alpha.

I plan for 1 week of alpha release while i fix bugs then 1 month of beta so extension developers have time to update their extensions.

After this release is finished i have a big list of new features i will be adding.

OpenCart commercial support now available!

Thanks for all your hard work, Daniel.

Can you (or someone else) give an example of what this new feature means?

"Template code can now be edited before it processed using lamba functions."

PHP 7 is required to install the alpha version. You'd normally get this error message if using PHP lower than 7.

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming. The increased post counters are caused by redundancies of the same solutions that were already provided prior.

Unfortunetaly this has been reverted 1 day before publishing the new alpha release back to 5.6:
https://github.com/opencart/opencart/bl ... tup.php#L6

Code: Select all

// Check Version
if (version_compare(phpversion(), '5.6.0', '<')) {
	exit('PHP5.6+ Required');
}
Source:
../system/startup.php
and https://github.com/opencart/opencart/bl ... l.php#L143

Code: Select all

		if (version_compare(phpversion(), '5.6.0', '<')) {
			$error .= 'You need to use PHP 5.6+ or above for OpenCart to work!';
		}
Source:
../install/cli_install.php
And see the whole commit - while only text, but not the code itself:
https://github.com/opencart/opencart/co ... 2f0449028c
reverted to 5.6+ requirement and not php 7+.
A shame that decision and not really useful!

As the first post indicates, PHP v7x is required to use the alpha release. However, the addressed issue about v5.6 requirements has already been posted on GitHub which should be fixed by the next indicated period on the first post.

A big difference!

I see. Then, there the term must of been misinterpreted since, on GitHub, provides the facts on the enforced requirements regarding the TWIG cache as it has also been addressed by the same poster. Followed are the facts: https://github.com/opencart/opencart/issues/6759 . However, it is considerable to say that misleading information was posted on the first post of this topic on that end. In addition, the changes were already made to the core from GitHub. As for the big difference result, yes, it does make a big difference indeed.

You have to develop a solid version and improve it more and more. Just getting a release is not going to work out why it gets full of bung.

I use version 3.0.2 the latest version and had to fix a lot of bung. Not to mention that the good modules are all paid ..

A solid release would still be based on new service requests and change management before it gets released by the Release and Deployment Management team, since GitHub Opencart is still in transition phase before releasing a stable release.

How different is 3.0.2.0 from the new pending 3.1.0.0 release? (performance, functionality etc...)

Is it worth upgrading or not?

A stable (or at least, once more, the so called) release would need to be released in order to provide a proper response to that question.

I did say “Pending Release”

So pretend it’s stable....
