Hi everyone! I've been working on a "personalized" version of Opencart for a few months now, but I'm new on this forum.
I started out with v220.127.116.11, did some extensive links rewriting modifications and then had to do it all again for every subsequent version that came up. I don't complain about it, since I knew what I was getting into when I started fiddling with a complex, still developing script. But it would be nice for me to see a new version release for download being offered both as a full version and as a "patch only" version, like you guyz used to do some time ago.
If we take v18.104.22.168 for example, as I understand it has only one file that is different from v22.214.171.124, it would have been nice to have it packed as a much smaller archive, containing just the (only) modified files (file) and be called a 126.96.36.199-188.8.131.52 patch. This way, knowing which the updated files are, I would not have to replace all the files from my older version and then do all my personal modifications again.
This approach would greatly facilitate the updating process for those of us using modified versions of Opencart, while reducing the traffic on this site, since we would prefer to download the smaller "patch only" versions instead of the much bigger full versions every time one is released. Full versions should offcourse coexist with the patches on the download page.
Just my humble opinion. Keep up the good work!
