Default Re: X-Cart 5.4.0 Public Beta is out

Well, I upgraded from 5.3.6.2 to 5.3.6.3 when it told me there was an upgrade for it and I'm on merchant wave, not developer wave. I had no idea that 5.3.6.3 is still considered "development".

The notice to upgrade to 5.4 in 5.3.6.3 is no longer showing up.

I've been running 5.3.6.3 as a live store and it's been working, but seriously, I hope you guys are more careful about this as many of us make our livelihoods with this thing.

These versions have minor changes but no excuses here. As I wrote previously we focus on a complex task, stabilizing upgrade process from 5.3.6.x and 5.4.0.x.

Please let me know if someone still sees the option to 5.4.0.x upgrade.
Thanks!

Showing update for 5.3.6.4 - but I'm scared to do it after the disaster that 5.4 created.

Please create a dev copy of your production store and test the upgrade there.
Just to be sure that it will works.
In case of any issue appears, please write the description of the problem here, with screenshots, logs files if possible. Or you can contact our support team.

Thanks!

I'm not a developer and have no idea how to create a dev copy. So far, x-cart was pretty good at just suggesting upgrades that are stable and not disruptive. 5.4, I suspect was not supposed to be out for general use yet.



Some of the problems were compatibility. Some features not working. To be honest, perhaps the major problem was the offensive comments added to orders and contact forms.



Support managed to restore 5.3, but we lost 5 days worth of order data, a number of blank contact forms to chase down, and time spent filtering stuff out that customers shouldn't see. (ex; "Your wallet is getting fat").



Just realized that he post I responded to was kind of old. Sorry.
