Hi, when you see the new version, it's been a long time since the last release. Thx

Or maybe next year?

Well, NEW STUFF does not automatically mean new FREE Releases! ;)

Better click on the link below, to see, how the OC Future might look, in longer
Terms. It's a rather useless attempt, to invest lot's of time and money, just to
keep those happy, making a living out of free Software, but usually without
adding much to the Project itself. And as more 'mature' something gets, as less
FREE is usually part of it, like anywhere else in real Life.

It's no longer required either, because the Future of OC will be the Cloud. And
for that, it only requires an ENGINE, but sure not much on 'default' Additions,
because they will differ from User to User. And it really makes no sense, to pack
Code into a 'default' Software Download, possibly never of any use for some.

But that's only my personal Interpretation, so, don't count on it. :D ;)

May be you are taking it all wrong, do you know REDHAT is making lot of money and from very long yet they are providing it opensource. If you see business model of other established players like PS or Magento, you can see they have community version which is free and equally capable but they make money from selling support, services included hosted / cloud solution. From what I have see so far about OC , Daniel wants to expand similarly.
And for removal of default extensions, they are not removing extension feature from OC, only removing it from core, probably they will maintain them separately. If OC gets enough popular then I am sure third parties will maintain their own version as we see with many other services like WHMCS , all payment gateway maintain their own integration for it.
Further, if you see OC code, there is lots of room for improvements and standardization and its not possible if only one person is working on it. So, going for all commercial is not yet an option for OC .

We are not dying! Doing a release now.

I had to spend some time to finish of the cloud version of opencart. we are in the process of setting up a new site for the cloud. I need to fix a few things on the main site then will be back on getting the next main release ready. We are also setting up the new company to get outside investment. So no the project is not dying. Will be getting more staff soon.
There you go guys and girls, from the main man himself, OpenCart is alive and well and a new release is imminent!
I mean, he's been saying that for awhile now, then 6 months later... still nothing. 1 year later, very minor changes. I won't believe it till I see it.

That's the spirit. Keep the belief on-going until you see it. :)

Yes, OC 3 - With a few extensions it's a very nice system.
