Vyacheslav ,

So does this replace Litecommerce? I am starting to get confused with all these stores: Ecwid, Litecommerce, Next, etc. I was hoping to setup a new store with Litecommerce but there always seems to be upgrade issues. Ecwid is great but needs hosted on something like Wordpress, etc.

Jonathan, this does indeed replace litecommerce. It is just a name change. Xcart 5 was going to be litecommerce. Now they have merged XC5/litecommerce and renamed it all XcartNext. So now we have three platforms available from QT: Ecwid, Xcart, and XcartNext. Hopefully that clears up the confusion.

I was experimenting with Litecommerce and created a store. I wonder what happens to that now if it is being replaced with a paid version.

Not sure that is the case. Both LC and XC Next will exists and yes it is unnecessary confusion

We don't have plans on closing LiteCommerce 3 yet.

You may consider LiteCommerce 3 as a "lite" Open Source version of X-Cart Next. It has less features out for the box and comes with a very limited support from our team (the low-priority BugTracker only).

If you are not an enthusiast programmer, it's recommeded to go with one of the three solutions: X-Cart Next, X-Cart Gold/Pro and Ecwid.

There is no script that could upgrade a LiteCommerce 3 shop to X-Cart Next. However, it should be possible to do it as follows:
1. Upgrade your LiteCommerce 3 shop to the core v1.1.0 (when it is released)
2. Replace shop files with files from the X-Cart Next distributive
3. Do a few MySQL queries to the database
4. Re-build the classes cache
5. Enable extra modules from X-Cart Next

Right now we are testing the LiteCommerce upgrade function (the 1.0.x -> 1.1.x upgrade). When it's done we will check the above steps and I'll revise the above steps.

Hello, X-Carters!

We had a long discussion of your comments to the X-Cart Next release announcement, and we decided to switch back to beta testing of X-Cart Next. Steve (aka cflsystem) and other people are right, we have been working on this platform for a very long time, and a couple of extra months of beta testing won't hurt anyone.

It's not because X-Cart Next software is buggy: the current core has been tested for over a year under LiteCommerce3 brand. A much more important point for us is to make sure that the Next platform is the solution that will help our customers to create more successful e-commerce websites. That is why our primary objective here is to gain your feedback, and only then to derive revenue from the new product. We would like you to take the meaning of this beta testing campaign as that X-Cart Next is now ready to be tested in real life, but we are open to any suggestions and ideas that can help us to make it better.

So please feel free to download X-Cart Next beta to see how it works, and give us your feedback at http://bt.x-cart.com/. We welcome any comments and suggestions.

As for X-Cart Gold/Pro (version 4), we definitely do not plan on closing this platform in the near future. We know it has a lot of fans and 3d party developers, so we just cannot let them down. Moreover, we are going to continue working on this platform and make it better from release to release. You can see that for yourself based on the three previous releases. More features, more integrations, more stable (as best as we can make it at this point ) in future versions. Vyacheslav already wrote that we will continue to release new versions and upgrades of X-Cart v4 at least for one year after the last license has been sold.
While XC4 rules (as totaltec said), we will support this platform and improve it.

Thank you for reconsidering and putting it back to beta.

So Litecommerce will be terminated then?

A little unfortunate for those that have supported this project don't you think?

LiteCommerce is an open source project - it cannot be terminated while there are users contributing into the project.

Also, we don't have plans on stopping committing improvements into LiteCommerce.
