Hey everyone!

I'm happy to announce that OpenCart is now available to download from the OpenCart Downloads page.

From everyone here at OpenCart I'd like to say a big thank you to all of the developers and OpenCart users who got involved during the Alpha and Beta testing stages. If you didn't get a chance this time, we announce our Alpha and Beta releases exclusively to developers via the OpenCart Newsletter - sign up (make sure to choose "Independent developer") to be notified when our next release is available for testing.

Along with a selection of improvements and bug fixes, OpenCart now features:
  • Support for Composer based libraries
  • Improvements & changes to the events system
  • 3 brand new payment gateways included in the core
  • Multi-language installer
  • Changes to template rendering to reduce code repetitiveness
  • Latest version of OpenBay Pro, now with support for Fulfilment by Amazon
There are now 2 versions available for the OpenCart download - a compiled version and a non-compiled version. The compiled version (which is now the default download) contains all of the external libraries needed to run OpenCart. If you'd like to maintain the Composer installation, you can download the standard files in the non-compiled version and run "composer install". To download the non-compiled version, visit GitHub and download "Source code (zip)" or "Source code (tar.gz)".

In addition to uploading the normal "upload" folder into your web root, you will also need to upload the composer.json, composer.lock and vendor folder to the folder outside web root.

If you haven't already, remember to update your extensions and add to their listing on the Extension Store so that users know that they're compatible.
