Good day

Is 3.0.2 version stable enough? Or should I wait a little more to find out? (I am not in a rush)

Thank you

If you're planning to upgrade from 2.3, just don't. Really not worth all the efforts spent.

A new store.

Should I start using 3.0.2 or wait for further updates?

I am not in a rush ...
Well, if you're not in a rush, then just spend some of your spare time
at the Forum, to read about it. And if nobody is talking about a Version
anymore, then, it was either a major Failure, or then, it might belong
to the 'solid' one's. But they won't tell, if their Tool works as planned,
but keep such as a Secret, like in any professionally managed Business.

It's as easy as that. It only takes a little time, since many Sub-Versions
already exist. But selecting 'latest' always means, to automatically
belong to the Testers too, regardless of, getting Software from Microsoft,
or then OC. And MS does not even come for free . But in Contrary to MS, OC
has, exept for some Github-Support, near to zero Ressources, to find out first,
before releasing something new. It's just the Price to pay, to get something
for free in return, by Nature of Things ... :-)
---
But it depends on what you use, the Russian Version OPENCART.PRO
https://forum.opencart.pro/topic/2908-% ... o-cms-v23x
already exists as VERSION 2.3.0.2.5 (dated Sept.21.2018), and should
therefore really be the upmost stable and secure OC v.2 type Edition.
With a full size default english language package included, b.N.o.T !

The fellow is in Business for some Years already, and he sure knows,
what he's doing. And he probably added most of the Wisdom, he gained
here, besides of, what he found out himself. But he's at war, at the moment,
with some screwballs, as it looks, otherwhise, this Version would not
have been offered for free, so soon already, I assume ...

And in contrary to other russian/ukrainian OC Derivates, it seems not to miss
OC default functions, removed due to little or no use in the eastern part of Europe.
---
Or then, if you at least use a v.1.5.6.x, and possibly a responsive Theme as well,
you could still get about 25 OC v.1.5.6.4 Misses fixed, by moving up to v.1.5.6.5_rc.
It's the (quasi-)final Release (Candidate) 1.5.6.x Edition, but eventually 'banned'
from continuing the 1.5.x Saga officially, because of fear, or at least, not to harm
the new Version OC v.2 Debut, with new Mods, new Jobs, and whatever is part of,
and sometimes reason for a real technical Move. Like to the V.2 responsive Bootstrap
Theme layout, and to the Inclusion of a built-in VqMod like override Function called
OcMod.

But 1.5.6.5_rc is still a valid Solution, since responsive Themes exist. It still
works up to (tested) PHP v.7.2x so far, by only changing one File, also used
in OC.2.x Versions, meaning that, for the nearer future, it should do the Job.
Also, a lot of responsive Themes exist, even for free. And after those Years,
it won't be an OC v.2.x or 3.x anymore either, for Forever-OC-Testers at least.

It's your Choice, so, good Luck ! :-)

I have to agree with thekrotek, version 3 is still very buggy. I find the admin of OC2 much faster and never see any errors in the error log

I would rank v2.3.0.2 as #1 and I personally think the 1.5.6.x and lower branches need to be removed and retired now.

Well, I don't think so, my v.1.5.6.5_rc is still unbeaten, by anything else,
when it comes to Performance, Security, and Stability. Besides of the
huge Amount of existing Information about it.

It even seems to handle PHP 7.2x 'easier' than most other Versions, as
it looks, by reading about here. And I get hacked like hell, but so far,
not one of them ever succeeded, by trying to get one of my test Sites
off the air. And that's, why I publish them, it's the cheapest way, to
find out, for free at least ! :D

Like it or not, but it's the only Version, never even mentioned here, despite
of the Fact, that Numbers are beeing used on a daily bases. Sorry about it,
but I prefer facts over Versions. And we all know, that latest OC's
always where and are Test Versions too, it's probably a main Reason,
why OC comes for free in the first Place. It just needs to be understud ... 8)

Except for 1.5.6.5_rc, that was a real final Version, and really - engineered,
to be the very best - (aged President CB Transceiver Advertizing :laugh: ) .
And it turned out that way, so far, as it looks. It only lacked a Bootstrap
Theme, but since famous PEKU and some russian Coders solved that
Problem, even OC Coders have a hard time, to find out, what Version
it is, just by checking the Page Source Code.

From my personal point of view, this Version should be used as a free OC,
as a solid Bases for Beginners and Players, like me, similar to a free Magento
Edition. Just packed up with an OC-2+ type Bootstrap Front Side Theme and
the one or two changed files, to meet PHP7.x and todays DB Install standards.

It could/would for sure keep considerable amounts of Newbies from eventually
resigning from OC, unable to 'handle' such a comprehensive and demanding
Installation and Use. They're not Coders, but that's, what Coders likely ignore.

It would not harm anything, and/or anybody. If it's done right, by all parties
involved. And/but that's, where the problems start, I assume ...

Just thinking out loud, so, don't tell anybody 8)

Wouldn't go beyond 3.0.2.0 and that one has enough bugs, afterthoughts and sheer forgets as it is.
