OpenCart 4.0.2.3 was released today (September 16, 2023). Here is the direct download link:

https://www.opencart.com/index.php?route=cms/download

Here is a list of changes on github:

https://github.com/opencart/opencart/re ... ag/4.0.2.3

You can try using the built-in Upgrade feature in System > Maintenance > Upgrade, but in my experience it is extremely slow. It failed for me after 40 minutes, and if it fails during the process it can leave your store partially updated (which can leave it non-functional). I would recommend manually upgrading if you decide to update.

Any bugs you encounter can be reported in the OpenCart 4.0 Bug Forum, or on github.

Or use our SpamBot Buster, no need for captchas.

How stable is this version? Is version 3 still the recommended download, or have the bugs been worked out of version 4 already? Would it be good to wait on version 4.1?

The general consensus among developers is to use the 3.0 branch for now. 4.0.2.3 is usable for a live store, but still has some bugs that make it inconvenient. The latest official 3.0 release is 3.0.3.9:

There should be a 3.0.4.0 out soon, or you can get that directly from the 3.0.x.x github maintenance branch:

https://github.com/opencart/opencart/tree/3.0.x.x

If you want to use the 4.0 branch I'd wait until 4.1.0.0, although it most likely will also have bugs, so waiting until 4.1.0.1 or 4.1.0.2 is a better idea.

Is there a way to get the old multi-page checkout format on version 4?

No, there's no extension to do that as far as I'm aware. However, I do have a 4.0 Checkout Improvements extension that helps speed up the process for the customer. It automatically triggers the shipping/payment steps after an address has been saved, and allows you to adjust some other things on the page like column width, comment box size, and whether the cart/payment area appears underneath the other areas.

Feel free to take a look at the screenshots and demo site, and if you're interested let me know at www.getclearthinking.com/contact if you have any questions. If you aren't interested and really want the old checkout, I would advise using 3.0.3.9 at this point. There aren't a lot of checkout extensions for the 4.0 branch at this point, at least that I'm aware of.
