Default Double release: 5.3.1 and 5.2.16, XC4 to XC5 Migration Wizard, New Developer Portal

Hi friends,

Meet 2 new versions at once: 5.2.16 bug fix release and 5.3.1 stable. Both are in developer wave now. Also, those who are thinking to migrate from X-Cart 4 to X-Cart 5 will be glad to learn that our recently developed Migration Wizard makes this switch a snap.

Moreover, we are glad to introduce a new Developer portal, where our partners and developers will find all the necessary information about X-Cart, as well as instructions on the adaptation of their features and custom code to 5.3.

Learn more about all the latest news in our blog at http://blog.x-cart.com/x-cart-double-release-5-2-16-and-5-3-1-stable.html

Great to see this news. Here's hoping that XC 5.3.1 is well on the way to being the real 'solution'

5.2.16 looks to be working fine for us (so far) in our Dev Store, as by pure chance, the bugs & issues listed in the changelog do not effect our setup / the way we work anyway, which is a first! We do have other existing small Core CSS bugs (related to Firefox Desktop and iPhone displays...) which were neatly cured with some good workarounds, produced from two recent XC tickets. These small bugs are not listed in the changelog, but it's worth adding official cures for these if possible and before the next wave release, as they will affect other users too.

Once 5.2.16 is officially released to merchants in the next wave, we will be running this live with no further changes (hopefully ) and will maintain a Status Quo until we have tried and very hard tested 5.3.1.* in every way possible via a new dev store.

It's highly likely that a lot of other people are going to stay with 5.2.16 for a while yet because 5.3.1 will be brand new and will require some time to absorb / adjust / dev store trial etc before they switch over / upgrade their live store. Or maybe not....

Congrats on these releases.

2016-07-20 - [Change] Added the ability to include a changelog with module distribution packs. The changelog will be shown to the store administrator when updating/upgrading. #XCN-6743 (Vladimir Semyonov)
I have not look at this but can you explain the procedure of adding the change log and how it will show? Any specific location and/or file name?
Also - admin will see this only when module is being installed/updated? Admin cannot see it anywhere in admin at any time after that? It will be very helpful if this change log is available at all times to admin.

Steve, the article for developers how to include changelogs into the module archives will be published next week. Thank you for pointing this.

Hi @ITVV,

Sorry about this problem. We have migrated knowledge base to a new platform and some redirects do not go throw yet. The team is looking into the problem.

Meanwhile, the installation guide can be found here: http://kb.x-cart.com/en/general_setup/installation_guide.html#server-requirements

I was going through the new dev.x-cart.com and this guide is definitely not for the new XC 5.3.x.
It talks about Flexy, LC_Dependencies, the tempaltes files structure is for 5.2. not for 5.3....

So how is this going to be solved? We do need to have 5.2.x guide but with all the major changes in 5.3.x we need one for 5.3.x as well.

Also - will the SDK be updated? The latest I got some time ago didn't comply even with later 5.2.x versions due to changes to core. Most recent version of it is over a year old. And it will definitely not work with 5.3.x. So do we get a new one for 5.3.x?

Tried to install 5.3.1. First, failure at

"Non-critical dependencies
Disabled functions ... exec, open…"

If you try to click on provided "failed" link to see what they are, it won't open. So I continued on anyway and it died at step 7:

Run the "Doctrine_Plugin_LoadFixtures" plugin...
...Load sql/xlite_data.yaml


If at any stage you try to click on installation guide, troubleshooting, knowledge base" etc, etc, it just takes you to "Sorry, this page was not found"

So I guess I'll put this on hold for awhile until they can get the documentation up.

Edit: Got rid of non-critical dependencies problem but still dies step 7: Run the "Doctrine_Plugin_LoadFixtures" plugin...
...Load sql/xlite_data.yaml

@kevinrm

Regarding "Sorry, this page was not found" I reported this issue in post #4 and Tony kindly provided the answer in post #6.

I also had the same issue as you with a failure at step 7.

Kind regards

ITVV

The devs.x-cart.com is the separate portal for the developers. There is no information for merchants. Yes, it includes all the previous articles from the KB in the developer guide part: flexy, LC_Dependencies. We still have a lot of 5.2.x installation and will save this information for them.

At the moment there are only two articles for 53x:
- http://devs.x-cart.com/en/what_is_new/
- http://devs.x-cart.com/en/migration_guides/updating_modules_from_5.2_to_5.3_branch.html
- http://devs.x-cart.com/en/basics/new_form/form-sections.html
- http://devs.x-cart.com/en/basics/new_form/from-fields.html
- http://devs.x-cart.com/en/basics/new_form/horizontal-form-field-extending.html
- http://devs.x-cart.com/en/basics/new_form/model_editing.html
- http://devs.x-cart.com/en/basics/bulk-editing.html
- http://xcart.github.io/flexy-to-twig/

We are working on the other parts of the documentation for 53x. We have a lot of post in draft, and these articles will be available very soon.

Also, we will mark every post with the appropriate tag of the version (5.2.x, 5.3.x, etc.)

About SDK: Our developers will provide the additional info here tomorrow.
