Should this release count as stable? Since it derives directly from 4.4.5 and seems like for the most part code is the same. Have you guys decided on the upgrades - very important - hopefully there will be direct full upgrade pack from 4.4.x systems

I was under the impression from this post that there would be no full upgrade from 4.4.x. Unfortunately.

The UPS registration goes around in circles. After hitting NEXT on the registration page, it asks you to log in again. This can't be right.

What, exactly, does this mean? Store owners must now shell out $1200 for X-Payments if they wish to use Authorize.net to process credit card transactions?

If I'm following this correctly, X-Cart is basically stating that all CC transactions through X-Cart, not handled by X-Payments or external gateway, are not PCI compliant?

Years ago the 4.x was to be killed off and 5.x was to take the place. Still waiting on that to really kick into gear. No need for 4.3, 4.4 & 4.5 - rather the fixes and then kill the branch and move forward with the 5.0 plan.

Also seeing the UPS Registration issue. We had a client earlier today asking questions on that as it wasn't working. We checked everything from HTTPS connections to .htaccess files, and everything appears correct, but once you click "Register" and then "Next" it dumps back to the login page and doesn't move forward.
