Looking at Opencart's new branches and releases in github it seems that Opencart will take maintenance&support seriously at last. I think this is good news!

Kudos for this decision!

Reading the comments here. https://github.com/opencart/opencart/issues/7130 While there are some important bug fixes in the latest release, many did not make it. The main purpose seems to be to add Google Shopping and update some payment extensions.

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.

First things first. Fixing bugs and safety should always be a top priority. Let's hope that they'll speed up a bit with the next improvements.

As expected in an early alpha or beta release, OpenCart 3.1.0.0 still has various bugs.

The ones I reported are all to do with Twig issues:
Twig ignoring template variables added by view/*/before events
Twig has no working auto-refresh
Twig doesn't accept changes from view/*/before events

My suggested pull request fixes all of that.
It basically makes OC 3.1.0.0 backward compatible for view/*/before events.
And it solves the problems with Twig caching, including auto-refresh, cooperates nicely with the theme editor changes. There is no more need for cumbersome lambda functions. And last not least, it can now automatically detect whether a template is twig or php before the rendering. Finally, the rendering time, therefore the overall page load time, is now faster, too.

I'm in the process of developing up a small eCommerce website. Of all the eCommerce scripts available, Opencart seems to have the best functionality for my intended purposes. Now I'm trying to decide what version to use. What are the differences between 3.0.2 and the upcoming 3.1.0? How difficult is the upgrade process on a live site? Any thoughts or comments are greatly appreciated.

Well, better forget the word UPGRADE, when it comes to OC, it has no meaning,
since OC changes in various Sections, from Subversion to Subversion again. And
nobody officially still works on older Releases anymore, if a new one arrives, since
OC has no free Ressources for such, but needs to concentrate on latest 'Things'.

In addition to the fact, that ANY upgrade Code would ONLY be capable, to function
with strictly DEFAULT OC Code, which is, in most of all OC-installations, just not the
case anymore.

It's the price, to pay, to get something for free, and without further Obligations ... :-)
So, better decide on a Version, where Extensions for your Needs exist, instead of
concentrating on Version Numbers, it would make much more sense !

Good Luck!
Ernie

It can be extraordinary that now we have now a further adaptation accessible but it's baffling that it is not regular but. Gracious well, we do not reside ideally and can believe that every one of the crucial blunders might be fixed quickly.

This is very encouraging to see. I'm attempting to move my 13 year old Yahoo Pro Merchant Solutions store to OpenCart. It's only been a few days now, and I'm further along than I had anticipated. Very nice to see the core team is doing commercial support and the product is always being improved upon. I hope all goes well and other Yahoo store owners I know make the jump too. Thank you.

I think you'll find a lot of improvements by switching from Yahoo. If you need any assistance, let us know. We have a lot of years of experience working with Opencart.

Hello everybody,

Daniel wrote in July 2018, that the release of OC3.1 is imminent after a brief alpha and beta phase. Obviously there were/are many bugs to fix...and I'm totally happy, that the focus is on a stable version before releasing a version with many bugs left.
I keep my fingers crossed for the developers (and also for us shop-owners), that the tasks can be completed in a timely manner.
Now to my question:
We are in a dilemma, since we run a well-attended shop, but with OC1.5.6.4 increasingly aging. Unfortunately, a further development to a newer OC-Version is very time-consuming and costly for us, because we had to program an individual solution for our complex configurable products in the frontend.
So, on the one hand, we want to wait for a current OC version to make the further development...on the other hand, we want to leave behind the increasing problems with OC1.

I know that the project managers of OC, for understandable reasons, don't like to write anything about release dates. But I also hope that the OC-project managers can understand the situation of some shop owners and are willing to make at least a rough statement. Something like "in the next quarter", "at the end of the year" or even something like "in no case this year" would be a very helpful, to make a decision.

Apart from that, I am certainly not the only one, who is very grateful for the great work of the programmers.

So thanks a lot and kind regards
Kiu

By providing that type of information to the public, since OC also connects with service providers, for payment and shipping reasons, then each PCI compliance email dates where developers would receive updates about would also need to be known which is unlikely possible in order to adapt the change into multi OC releases.
