I'm very new to software development, can you please answer these two questions:

1) If I downloaded V1.5.2.1 from the OC download page, does that software have any of the bug fixes included in it that have been found/fixed before I downloaded V1.5.2.1?

2) Moving forward, how/where do I find the fixes for bugs with the OC software? How do I install them (I'm assuming I just FTP over some files to my server)?

Thanks!

This is awesome! Is there a readme file or similar to find out what you mean by improved compatibility for Authorize.net?

Thanks!

Q -

That answers question 1. Just to clarify the answer to question 2, do I always return to this forum and check to see if a new patch is posted? I believe that it was mentioned the patches are released every Tuesday. Is that correct?

Thanks!

No.. Windows releases hotfixes every tuesday... that was just an example. At some point they will be admin based and you can simply click "Check for update" from the admin area

No. It is nothing that anyone will ever notice. In all this time only one person had this issue because their php wasn't installed properly so it was missing default constants for the "&" symbol. This just forces the & symbol in the parameter string.

Thanks for the response Q. Am I on my own in wondering about a further integration to allow an admin to void or capture a payment from the admin section instead of having to go to Authorize.net or Paypal to void and capture transactions? Just seems like a lot of people act surprised when I ask about this, but I've seen it in other carts.

I can tell you it isn't in the plans. Features like that are niceties but have the ability to be done from the main gateway site as well so there is no "need" persay. The only place to add it would be within the payment gateway admin configuration area as that is part of the dynamic extension system.. not fully intuitive when you want to do it from the individual order which has no plug-n-play extension framework in place. And, not all gateways offer that ability so it doesn't make a lot of sense to add the placeholders for it into the order system. Additionally... just as an educated guess from my own online stores.. less than 1 out of 50 payments on average need to be refunded.. not really enough that it would apply to most people to bother taking the time to integrate the feature.

Your best bet would be to hire someone to code that in for you as needed.

Okey. I installed 1.5.2.2

Then i put patch 959. Later you made patch 982. Now it's patch 990.

Are they incremental patches, or patch 990 contain all previous fixes from old patches ?

Q - Thanks again for taking the time to provide a good explanation about this.

The main reason we're looking to do this is due to the fact that the in store POS that we have running does not communicate with the online store, so unfortunately, there are a lot of times when we don't actually have the product that was ordered because it's been sold in the retail store before we can update the online store.

We like the "authorize" feature so that we could double check to make sure we have the items and then as long as we do, we can then capture the payment and get the product shipped.

Do you have a recommendation about a developer? I've contacted a few listed around this site and haven't had much response if any at all.

Thanks!!!

They are marked
r885-959
r885-982
r885-990

So you can see, they all start at revision 885 which was the 1.5.2.0 revision.
Each patch contains all previous fixes since the 1.5.2.0 release

That'd be awesome if you could do this for me and I've got some time before I need to have it completed. Let me know the best way to get in touch with you and get costs and details figured out.

Thanks!!

Patches aren't about new features, they are about bug fixes. Daniel is working on the company stuff but it is more like a sneak preview bonus. There is some work to be done with the addresses as the company stuff is only valid for billing address so the validation needs to be changed
