How exciting to see 4.3..

So, based on my old version, and my waiting for the right time to upgrade what's been pretty stable, is it time now?

Seems like loads of new features.

Or is 4.3 too new to have an opinion on?

Of course, I have no idea what it will cost for x-cart to upgrade us from our old version, but if there's enough new goodies to make it worthwhile, maybe it's time!

Kibbitz amongst yourselves with opinions..

ex.

Can I upgrade directly from 4.1.9, or do I have to make each successive upgrade to get to 4.3?

Thank you,

There are no upgrade patches. Only a script upgrading the X-Cart database.

Please register your X-Cart installation under "My licenses" section in the private members area. Detailed instructions on registering an X-Cart installation are provided in the evaluation note displayed in the store back end.

To upgrade the database gives this error


Creating a new tables definition .
SQL error #1105 : MyISAM table 'xcart_category_bookmarks' is in use (most likely by a MERGE table). Try FLUSH TABLES.
SQL query: CREATE TABLE xcart_category_bookmarks ( xcart_category_bookmarks.categoryid int(11) NOT NULL default '0', xcart_category_bookmarks.add_date int(11) NOT NULL default '0', xcart_category_bookmarks.login varchar(32) NOT NULL default '', UNIQUE KEY categoryid (categoryid,login)) TYPE=MyISAM

You can find more info on upgrading your stores up to the 4.3 version in X-Cart manual:

Try:

1. Find the following text in "tables.sql":

Code:
ALTER TABLE xcart_shipping_rates ADD apply_to char(6) NOT NULL default 'DST' AFTER type; CREATE TABLE xcart_category_bookmarks ( xcart_category_bookmarks.categoryid int(11) NOT NULL default '0', xcart_category_bookmarks.add_date int(11) NOT NULL default '0', xcart_category_bookmarks.login varchar(32) NOT NULL default '', UNIQUE KEY categoryid (categoryid,login) ) TYPE=MyISAM;

2. Manually execute the ALTER TABLE operation in the MySQL console (it appears as the operation consumes too much resources on your server and cannot be executed from the DB upgrade script)

3. Cut the operation from the file and save the file

4. Run the DB upgrade script

Default Re: X-Cart 4.3 released

Quick question regarding licenses: if a new license were purchased today (following 4.3's release) will the licensee be able to use 4.1.x and 4.2.x builds (currently 4.1.12 and 4.2.3), or will they have access to the 4.3.0 files only? I just noticed that the X-Cart Pro product page lists it as 4.3.0 with "Free access to future versions," but it doesn't mention access to 4.2.x.

The reason I ask is that we're working with another site owner who was just about to purchase X-Cart Pro, but they need 3rd-party mods that haven't yet been made 4.3-compatible. We just need to know whether we can move forward with a 4.2 installation, or if they ought to wait until those mods are updated.

Thanks!

You will have access to all X-Cart versions: 4.3.x, 4.2.x and 4.1.x. Depending on the X-Cart version you will accept different license agreements during installation.
