Default X-Cart 4.3 beta testing

Dear Customers,

We are pleased to announce that the new X-Cart branch 4.3.x is now available for beta testing, which is scheduled to continue till August 3, 2009. This beta release aims primarily at regular X-Cart users and developers who now have a great opportunity to test and evaluate the next X-Cart branch and help us make X-Cart 4.3. better.

Important: X-Cart 4.3 is not yet recommended for production use at this stage.

What's new in X-Cart 4.3

The new X-Cart branch includes numerous little enhancement and refinement, and a number of considerable improvements, most of which go behind the scene.

The visible changes introduced with X-Cart 4.3 include:

* AJAX technology for the mini-cart, product rating, etc.
* Quick Search panel
* X-Fancy Categories, X-AOM and X-RMA are now included into the X-Cart distribution package
* Two new skin templates

For a more detailed list of improvements please refer to the file NEW-4.3.0 in the distribution package for X-Cart 4.3 Beta.

How to Obtain

To download a distribution package for X-Cart 4.3 Beta:

1. Log in to your HelpDesk account at https://secure.qtmsoft.com/ and go to the My Licenses section.
2. In the My Licenses section, find the entries marked as "Not for resale license". The two licenses are available for X-Cart Gold 4.3 Beta and X-Cart Pro 4.3 Beta.
3. Click the Accept button corresponding to the necessary license (X-Cart Gold 4.3 Beta or X-Cart Pro 4.3 Beta). This will reload the page and open the X-Cart 4.3 License Agreement.
4. Put your signature into the special form below the License Agreement and click the Accept button.
5. After you have accepted the Agreement, go to the File Area section of your HelpDesk account and download the necessary distribution package.

For me, even after accepting the licence, I still get the "License isn't accepted" message. I Keep getting "Incorrect Signature".

OK You guys left out instructions!

In the My Licenses section you have to set the FILTER to NOT WORKING.

Then you will see the Not For Resale License.
