Only three days ago they sent out a glossy marketing email promoting the fact that OpenBayPro was now integrated into OpenCart, yet it was too much trouble to send out another one warning current paying customers that we should not upgrade to 1.5.6 but instead perform a clean install. This little gem wasn't thought worthy enough of an email and was demoted to a few words on the OpenBay support site.
Maybe they should have TESTED this (I mean, is it likely that existing customers might want to upgrade when a new version of OpenCart is released?) and dropped us poor devils an email letting us know, before putting effort into the glossy marketing guff telling us how good things were. As it stands I have a trashed install on which I'm trying to run my business.As OpenBay Pro has been included into the core code of OpenCart 1.5.6 it can cause conflicts with code due to the requirements of vQmod on previous version.
At this time we do not advise upgrading to 1.5.6 if you have OpenBay Pro installed as you may loose data.
We are currently looking at ways to port the data over during the upgrade.
A show-stopping situation like this doesn't warrant an e-mail out to paying customers? Absolutely astounding.
