I don't think we've had an official introduction to Heather and her role in the organization yet. I suspect not much is being done here but shooting the messenger.

I hope not as there are to many glitches to be fixed before an official release should even be considered.

Just my 2 cent.

When one has to use the word HOPE... prior to a release date... it says lots of the state of things uh? :D

There will always be some bugs to be found with each new release.

Why don't you help with our VQmod XML community bugfix file for OpenCart 2.0.3.0? With a little bit of effort by some of us developers we can make it work. So far, most of the known 2.0.3.0 bugs were relatively easy to fix.

Sure, but releasing it with known bugs (even when fixes are known) after a "beta" period... ??? ::)
Exactly!

Some more bugs.

In the following files:
  • catalog/controller/product/category.php
    catalog/controller/product/manufacturer.php
    catalog/controller/product/search.php
    catalog/controller/product/special.php
We have the following block of code:

Code: Select all

if ($this->config->get('config_review_status')) {
	$rating = (int)$result['rating'];
} else {
	$rating = false;
}
Yet, in the product array that is built in each of these files, we have:

Code: Select all

'rating'      => $result['rating'],
This should be:

Code: Select all

'rating'      => $rating,
Further to the above, a bug (previously reported on this forum) relating to the minimum number of products not being added to the shopping cart when adding from a module (bestsellers, featured, latest, special). The following line of code should be added into the product array in catalog/controller/module/bestseller.php, catalog/controller/module/latest.php and catalog/controller/module/special.php:

Code: Select all

'minimum'     => $result['minimum'] > 0 ? $result['minimum'] : 1,
before:

Code: Select all

'rating'      => $rating,
And for catalog/controller/module/featured.php:

Code: Select all

'minimum'     => $product_info['minimum'] > 0 ? $product_info['minimum'] : 1,
With the "Add to Cart" button in their corresponding template files changed to:

Code: Select all

<button type="button" onclick="cart.add('<?php echo $product['product_id']; ?>', '<?php echo $product['minimum']; ?>');"><i class="fa fa-shopping-cart"></i> <span class="hidden-xs hidden-sm hidden-md"><?php echo $button_cart; ?></span></button>

Hi everyone!

After discovering a few bugs with 2.0.3.0 & the feedback that we've received in this post, we've made the decision to pull this release. Our team & members of the OpenCart community have been working hard on bug fixes and are now happy to re-release this as 2.0.3.1.

There have only been bug fixes between 2.0.3.0 and 2.0.3.1, so you shouldn't experience any issues with your modules between the two versions - we won't be doing the public release of 2.0.3.1 until Friday now though in case you want to double check.

Thanks for your help in finding bugs JNeuhoff, fido-x and everyone else who's lent a hand. Also, thanks qahar for pointing out that you can set a pre-release on github - this is an awesome idea so we'll definitely be using the pre-release tag in the future!

We have recently updated the Read Me on github to include clearer information on how new versions of OpenCart will be released in the future. As always, if you do notice a bug with 2.0.3.1 then let James and I know and we'll do our best to get it fixed for the next release.

You can download OpenCart 2.0.3.1 and view a list of the bug fixes that have been included since 2.0.3.0 here: https://github.com/opencart/opencart/re ... ag/2.0.3.1

Thanks,
Heather

Heather

I like Heather. This is the kind of explanation expected and should have always been. :)
I haven't gone live yet on 2.2.0 only because I can't figure out how to edit/amend part of cart/checkout, but this post from Heather, as detailed and appreciative as it is, is making me consider forgetting the struggle with previous versions and try with 2.3.0.1

Why? Because proactive real developers (not me at all) are being recognised and their efforts on fixing the known issues are being welcomed.

My only worry is that whilst I have no theme as such, I made my own by copying the default template folder and adjusting bits of code here and there with a whole list of free extensions to improve site functionality. It takes too long for the free versions of extensions to be updated - there should also be a 7-day rule for developers who submit any extension to be given only 7 days to update it or mark their extension with a notice that there is no intention for the extension to be updated for future versions. At least we know then.

I know people have asked for it before, but as an amateur, some sort of upgrade script which tells me when I update the software that X or Y extension won't work would be a dream come true.

If tutorials were updated for more 2.0+ versions then we would at least have a chance to learn for ourselves.

Oh well, at least things are looking a bit better now with 2.3.0.1 (after bug fixes are being implemented) ?

Seems a shame that it still wont work on A LOT of shred hosting accounts because of the cURL HTTP loopbacks. Does anyone know why these loopbacks have been introduced and if we can go back to the way it was.

I can only assume a fairly massive impact on OC popularity. A lot of OpenCart users will be on shared hosting, a lot of whom dont allow these loopback requests for security reasons. OC v2 is essentially alienating these users and stopping support of the new system by hosts.

Heart Internet is one of the UK's biggest hosts and certainly the biggest reseller. Heart Internet and all its resellers now dont support OC v2.

Seems mad to me.
