Hi,

As I see osCommerce 3 is really stucked? I thought that osCommerce 3 is a breath of fresh air for very old project, but it seems to be its last tries to catch up with leaders.
There is no bugreports approved/fixed on githhub/forum trackers, no any pull requests approved on githhub already for 11 months. Harold pulled minor changes on beginning of the February and then reverted some of them.
Release of 3.0.2 was 7 months age and no any significant features or bugfixes implemented.
So I'll freeze the payment module development, although it 98% finished and it's waiting only one bugfix.
Better to spent time for Shopping Carts where teams are paying attention to their product and to developers community needs.

Best regards,
Vladimir

Hi Laurent,

Thanks /biggrin.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':D' />
In such way I expected to impel devs of osCommerce 3 to action.

I'm not fan of any Shopping Cart CMS and etc., but when I downloaded osCommerce 3 at first time I couldn't believe my eyes: new logic design and code are qualitative enough and contemporary.
I'm making payment modules for a lot of CMS and I expected osCommerce 3 to be the new one that should be pleasure implement for.
But I found that last bugreports are without any attention, CMS contribution in github looks sluggish enough (sorry, but I found not a lot by your links), many of forum threads are "covered with cobwebs".
If project is really actively contributed - I'm just glad.

But even when I asked "how to handle success/cancel/callback?" (because there are no any dev docs for version 3) urls on forum, people told me to use oscommerce 2.3 (in Add-Ons Development section of osCommerce 3 forum!!!). Okay, I researched osCommerce 3 code and found out how to handle that, but bug with callback appeared. I posted report to forums bug tracker - no reaction, other reports are without attention too. I found with the help of some forces github page of osCommerce 3 (on main site I found only links to unavailable svn), duplicated bug report - no any reaction again. I don't talk about some lightning fix, I talk at least about report approve by maintainer.

I think you understand my motivation to such thoughts.
Sorry for long text and maybe some sharpness in words, but I tried to explain what caused such conclusions.
If you have any questions or alternative explanations - I'm glad to talk to you, maybe you can clarify much of mentioned above.

Best regards,
Vladimir.

UPD:
Maybe I directed my bugreport to wrong trackers?
Also what difference between https://github.com/o...rce/oscommerce/ and https://github.com/h...pdl/oscommerce/ repository?

Thanks.

@ foxp2 , you don't reply, bugs still even not approved.

What did you talk about, Laurent?

Hi All..

It was described in the release announcement that v3.0 focused on the framework and that the user features would be coming this month. This is the same when you download Zend Framework, Symfony, Kohana, or other PHP framework, that you receive a great framework to start building on as they do not come with any user features at all.

What's "under the hood" in v3.0 is a complete framework that is stable to build on. It was important for us to release v3.0 to freeze the framework API otherwise we'd continue improving it in a vicious circle. Now we have v3.0 to build on and to improve on for v3.1, v3.2, .. releases.

With v3.0 we also introduce CoreUpdate which allows you to perform upgrades over the Admin Dashboard without any manual work or need to edit source code files. The first update(s) will be pushed this week introducing new user features and bug fixes.

For those that are bored with their installation due to no errors being logged - we are truely sorry for providing such a solid framework /thumbsup.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':thumbsup:' />

Kind regards,


That's really awesome. Please let me know how can I make use of it for my new website.

Thanks!

Hi.
I'm also very anxious to get my hands on a working (for live shop) of oscommerce 3.
Is there any time estimate/prediction for a workable version?

Thanks

I would also love to hear an update as OsCommerce 3 is the only shopping cart solution that I have hope for.

Consider the competition:
1) ZenCart - most of the code is absolutely ancient
2) Magento - extremely over-normalized db structure, super-bloated
3) Others - I feel that a shopping cart solution needs to be open-source, and have a huge community behind it, so I think OsCommerce, ZenCart, and Magento are really the only players in the game.

Hope to hear an update as to 3.1.0 launch!

You forgot OpenCart and PrestaShop , both open source and with growing user-base and community.

Thanks toyicebear,

These two shopping cart softwares have been gaining ground since I last really looked. They both have Alexa rankings in the 1000s.

Here is my review:
OpenCart - not bad, uses MVC framework ... but I don't like their database structure. It is not optimized. They are using MyISAM table types where they shouldn't and the structure seems kind of bloated.
PrestaShop - ok db structure, not the greatest file structure. May be better than the alternatives. Going to look into this further.
