      No need to get personal, I've suspended your account for 24 hours to give you time to calm down

  3. Interesting video on "How Open Source Projects Survive Poisonous People (And You Can Too)"

      Very interesting.

      Maybe need a few categories ...learning...and..and etc

  4. I'd use 2.3.3 as the base, 2.4 will be on the way soon but will be pretty similar in terms of functionality, I would then suggest keeping an eye on the 3.x development as once we get closer to stabilising the core codebase we will look to prepare a full functionality release which will be radically different to the 2.x series

  7. I really wish people would stop posting support requests in the bug tracker

      I whish the bug tracker was more "live" That is confirm, fix or remove.

  9. Its time to stop talking and start coding! PHP 5.4 you will be tamed

    1. dadada


      osCcommerce v2.3.1 needs the update to work with PHP5.4! That does not work with PHP5.4. I'm checking out upgrade changes now. Quickly question: When will the new version be released ?

      I would hope to release it shortly after PHP 5.4 becomes a final release

    Roadmap for OSC 3

    The roadmap can be seen at http://countdown.oscommerce.com/index.php?article=roadmap In short, there is a lot of work to do on 3.0 and it will take a while, if your a developer then why not help out

    There was no way we could be backwards compatible and move the codebase forward enough to be a good base for the future. As I've said a few times recently, if your not a developer don't use v3.x for now, 2.3 is a supported released and will receive more updates to keep the general userbase busy. If you really want v3.x then you pay a little more per month and get a VPS, there are 1000's of companies offering them which will give you PHP 5.3. Supporting every shared hosting company out there will do nothing but hold everyone back

    If your that desperate to take a look just download it from https://github.com/osCommerce/oscommerce there is no need to wait

    Yep totally agree, if you also add VPS / Cloud / Dedicated servers into the mix you are into 1000's of hosting companies as well so I think people jumping up and down saying its wrong to have PHP 5.3 as a minimum requirement are just spreading pointless FUD. 2.3 is also a supported release and will be getting some updates soon to fix some of the known bugs so people have a real choice, stick with the 2.3 series which while its a pain to modify and upgrade will run just about anywhere, or use 3.x which is a little more strict but will be what the future is built on.
