What if I'm currently using 4.4.1? Do I need to upgrade to 4.4.2 first, or can I use the upgrade pack to go straight to 4.4.3?

I'm not quite sure as upgrade packs are not available yet.
But usually upgrade is incremental 4.4.1 -> 4.4.2 -> 4.4.3.

Thanks, I haven't done a minor upgrade since I started using X-Cart. I didn't know

I have all 180+ files (php,tpl and etc). Can I just install X-Cart 4.4.3, copy the 180+ files and expect that the skin (if it is called a skin - maybe template??) would work?

Kindly advise.

Thanks!

This is an interesting entry in the changelog:
Quote:
Improvement (0104799): Optimized Advanced Statistics module
Can someone expound on this and the improvements to One-Page Checkout? There are some folks who are not very confident in these two systems.

am i correct in thinking that all the changes have been made to files outside the "skin" folder so if i install this from scratch, i can just copy and paste my skin folder from 4.4.2.

There are probably edits to the skin files too, so just copying your skin folder may not fix all the bugs - I'd run the upgrade and manually patch any files that were customized and won't patch.

It doesn't work that way. It may work for some files but how can you be sure? You have to go through the upgrade process

I've not preformed a 4.4.x upgrade, but it would seem to me that upgrades associated with the template files requires extra care if you followed a strategy where you created your own skin directories and avoided editing anything in the common_files.

On pre 4.4, you would run the upgrade patch, and you would get a report of all the files that could not be patched. You would work from that "could-not-patch" list to make your updates.

On 4.4, if the QT upgrade method is the same, you could get a report that all files are patched successfully - but it might not know about the changes in your skin directories.

If the upgrade script is not aware that you have used a strategy where you did not modify common_files, but instead created your own skin directory, then it seems you would need to review all those files against the upgrade list file, and hand patch any that changed. (Changes in skin files could be dependent on changes in core php files, and vice versa.)

As I understand it, there have been no improvements to the architecture (until v5), so upgrading is as it always has been - even if you separated your changes to new skin directories. Even upgrades within minor versions can be complex and require careful review of all impacted template files that you have modified.
