Just to let everyone know: Daniel has just released OpenCart 3.0.3.9 based on the former 3.0.x.x_Maintenance branch, with further changes based the new 3.0.x.x branch of the opencart repository. It contains the latest PayPal, various bugfixes, and support for the PHP versions 7.4, 8.0, 8.1, and 8.2. It's only available from github, see above links!

Most of above mentioned bugfixes were also included into the opencart-3 repository which is maintained by the TheCartpenter. However, this opencart-3 repository also contains other changes, mostly more type declarations for functions and methods, and other cosmetic changes.

If backwards compatibility of existing OC 3.0.3.8 extensions, especially when using OCmod, are important, then we recommend the new 3.0.x.x branch. If you want to use the extensions for the opencart-3 repository, then make sure to carefully test them first and adjust them as needed. Technically speaking, the github opencart-3 repository is more like a future 3.1.0.0 version (now labeled as 3.2.0.0).

I hope this clarifies things.

Also, we'd like express our thanks for all the hard work gone into this project from various contributors which helped to make OpenCart a success.

Thanks to everyone for maintaining the 3.0 branch! Hopefully this means it will be useful for years to come, even as the 4.0 branch adds new features and improvements.

Yes, the 3.0.x.x series still has some useful lifespan ahead of it. Next thing to do for it is to update the currency refresh, it should use the API from the European Central Bank, the old one from Yahoo Finance doesn't work anymore.

I have now added the European Central Bank Currency Converter to the 3.0.x.x branch, see this pull request.

Does this "further changes based the new 3.0.x.x branch of the opencart repository"
mean that from now forward the 3.0.x.x_Maintenance branch will continue to be updated above 3.0.3.9?

Will it be possible to upgrade from 3.0.3.8 without problems?

The upgrade function will cause problems in most cases. It's better to do a fresh installation of 3.0.3.9 or the 3.0.x.x, including all your extensions, and then use the free Export/Import tool to port your data over to the new OpenCart.

Just to let everyone know: We just tested OpenCart 3.0.3.9 and 3.0.x.x with the latest PHP 8.3, and it seems to be working all fine.
