Well almost 😉 Apparently v3.0 of osCommerce is near to release, here’s a paragraph from HPDL;
…look forward to making 2009 an even better year with osCommerce Online Merchant v3.0, with a production-ready release of the new core engine being made in February…
So, v3 should be out there, accessible by all, by the end of February. Which will be good as it’s been far too long since the last release of osCommerce.
However, don’t hold your breath! It’s well known that osCommerce has the slowest release cycle of almost any (large) open source project. This new version has been promised for YEARS, so I don’t really expect to see it within the next 6 weeks.
If I am wrong about that, and I hope I am, then great. Of course, a new release of osCommerce means more support work, updating my templates, updating my eBooks and all the rest of that gubbins. I’ll also need to make a new category in this blog just for v3 questions as there is going to be a lot of them, I suspect.
