I╢m currently running 4.1.11 with a lot of add ons both from x-cart as well other parties. As we plan to launch our 2nd site without external modules it would be nice to start right from the 4.3 branch.

There are no more "stable" and "development" X-Cart versions. We do our best and change our development processes towards getting new X-Cart versions stable with their first releases.

I can't answer this question right now.

There will be no scripts upgrading the source code (and templates) to 4.3. The script will upgrade the database only. You'll have to upgrade the code manually or order commercial upgrade services (from our company or any third-party developers).

Linkpoint is replaced with Global Gateway:
http://www.linkpoint.com/

So, I guess, if you had an account with Linkpoint, now you are to use Global Gateway. 4.3 will be integrated with Global Gateway.

Yes, X-AOM and X-RMA modules will be available to all X-Cart 4.2 users free of charge when X-Cart 4.3 is released.

The following is a quote from Ene:
Quote:
The attached file contains patches that fix some annoying bugs of X-Cart v4.2.0.
If you use v4.2.0, I highly recommend you to apply it. After that your v4.2.0 will feel much better : -)

To me that is not stable. For years now upgrades have been released that have had all kinds of problems, but it generally still works. So once a version is release it is a couple of months or more before all the broken parts of x-cart are fixed. Until then those that upgrade are basically guinea pigs doing the beta testing. This is fine as I expect problems with new releases on software that upgraded often and I don't have to pay for upgrades. My point is people should not expect a bug free 4.3 or v.5 release.

Mike

4.1 has been out for a very long time now and yet bugs are still being found. I don't think that makes it unstable.

That really depends on the type of bugs being found.

The sooner your programmers can separate programming / template / configuration, rather than having all hard-coded, the better for all concerned.

Are you going to write a manual on custom smarty tags added in 4.2-4.3?
