Hey everyone!

Meet the new X-Cart v5.3.6.

Upgrade to the new version is available to developers only so that we could test it together and make sure everything is okay before the upgrade is available in all the X-Cart stores. If your X-Cart installation is set to receive updates with the Developer wave, you are welcome to upgrade your store and share your feedback with us. We’re always here to answer all your questions about X-Cart 5.

I upgraded and tried to add a hidden attribute for a product: google_product_category. When I look at the hidden attributes, there is no " google_product_category" field to enter in a hidden category. Does this have to be created manually?

Installed for testing from scratch.
PHP 7.2.10
MySQL 5.7.24

Fast installation and it works. However the last screen of installation wizard lists a Warning

MySQL query cache is not active, learn how to activate it https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/query-cache-configuration.html

Well this has been mentioned before - the MySQL cache is basically gone. Why is XC still insisting of using it?
From the link above "The query cache is deprecated as of MySQL 5.7.20, and is removed in MySQL 8.0."

So this installation is using MySQL 5.7.24 and the query cache is deprecated since 5.7.20. If the installation knows the MySQL query cache is off then it should check the MysQL version and know not to use it and not to put out this warning. It even shows in admin on Environment page - as non-critical installation requirement with status failed

This my be confusing for some users not to mention they may think cart is not working well because of this.

you need to create the hidden attribute (you can call as you want), set up the needed value and then assign google_product_category with this attribute under the Google Feed setting page
