Cool X-Cart 4.2 released

Hi!

We are glad to announce that we have released X-Cart 4.2. It is available for downloading in your private members area.

There are no skins for 4.2 but the integrated css-based Light&Lucid yet. We plan to adapt a couple of popular 4.1's commercial skins and make them available to X-Cart 4.2 users, but it will take pretty much time due to making them css-based.

Also, I would like to say that now X-FancyCategories module is 100% css-based, doesn't require JavaScript in w3c-compliant browsers (the only browsers requiring JavaScript are IE, including the 8th one) and is search-engine friendly (all html code needed to display popup menus is put after the page contents).

For more information please refer to the news section at http://www.x-cart.com

Thank you!

Best regards,

Anyone insane enough to go live with 4.2 on Dec 17 is well, not selling consumer goods.

However, I look forward to testing 4.2 and I congratulate the x-cart team for getting us this far. Now please go back to work and get 4.3 ready!

Good job on the release, and I second the thoughts of releasing/upgrading prior to the holidays could speak suicide.

Will the upgrade to the new CSS theme etc have any effect on other add-on modules that have been made for X-Cart? I know that it's not X-Cart's responsibility to check that, but just curious if any of them will break.

Maybe we can start a thread for X-Cart 4.2 Add-On's, so that authors of the 3rd party modules can comment if the Add-On has been tested and is compatible with 4.2?

Yes this is a great idea and very much needed, if the providers aren't already noting this on their product pages.

I like the thumbnail images for product categories, is it possible by default to "Feature categories" on the home page, this would be a an excellent addition.

Looks like it's time to go through the code and backport anything necessary

I believe that if an online store is live and generating sales, it's better for the merchant to wait with upgrading to 4.2. Many of its features are already available to 4.1 merchants as third-party modules; so, if you have already installed these modules, 4.2 most likely won't introduce new features.

However, if you are building a new online store, 4.2 will be a better platform, than 4.1.

As for third-party 4.1 modules: I guess none of them will work with 4.2 due to the new css-based design and changes in the code.
