How hard would it be to upgrade from v4.3 to v4 without upgrading to 4.3.1 or 4.3.2

That sounds almost impossible to acheive in that amount of time, considering version 5 isnt even ready, how can they make a transitional release?

I agree it does sound nearly impossible, but eh who knows. I'm just waiting and watching.

Thank you for your comments, folks. Here go my answers to your questions:

Yes, it will be added. It wasn't just ready at the moment I was taking screenshots from a development copy.

re: upgrades
v4.4 code won't be too far from v4.3 code so upgrade v4.3->v4.4 shouldn't be harder than e.g. v4.2->v4.3

Blowfish and admin cannot see passwords (his own even). Also, X-Cart v4.4 doesn't send passwords in e-mail notifications.

Well, we do work on the new platform and v5.0 is going to be a kind of completely new platform than joins all pros of X-Cart and LiteCommerce to eliminate their cons. v4.4 is an improvement version of existing X-Cart engine. There are features that must be in existing X-Cart + we should remember about ease of transition between versions. X-Cart v4.4 is still having the same X-Cart engine as v4.2 and v4.3 have while v5.0 is going to have a new engine.

it's all said here http://help.qtmsoft.com/index.php?title=X-Cart:Roadmap

we release upgrade kits for latest minor versions in a branch. So you'll need to have 4.3.2 in order to be able to upgrade to 4.4

I would love to see the screen shots but FireFox keeps telling me the links are in a never ending redirect loop...

Just checked the links in my post - all work fine. Have you tried some other browser?

Xcart ver 4.4 was orginally scheduled for April 2010. Then changed to May 2010 and now updated to June 2010. What's the likelihood that it would be released on time in June 2010? Or in another word, what are the chances that the release date would get changed again?

I can certainly understand that sometimes unexpected things happened and caused the release date to be pushed back. Just curious on the new release date so we can make plan accordingly. Thanks!

@TL408

Not sure about that. At the moment it is scheduled to be released in June 2010 and most likely it will be released in June.

You are right about unexpected things happened. I hope nobody is going to create some new requirements that everyone must follow in time.

Ambal: because this will be the last branch in v4, make a good release from it. Personally I am not stressing you with the release time. I will continue using 4.3 and 4.4 in the next future. You said the new platform v5 will be different than v4. So you will do it using OOP, like LC platform.

Did you plan some RC's before releasing XC v4.4?

Yes, there will be beta-testing before release and everyone will be able to download a copy to see v4.4
