Today, I am happy to announce the next release of EShop Shopping Cart extension, version 3.6.3 with the following new features / improvements:
1. Update Omnipay Payment Processing Library
Some of our payment plugins use ominpay payment processing library as the base for processing payment. The default version of that library shipped in the extension is version 2 and not compatible with PHP 8. From this version of EShop, we ship Omnipay library version 3 so that it works well with PHP 8 in case it is used for certain payment plugins.
2. Update all duplicated shipping plugins.
If you are using duplicated default shipping plugins, then please getting them from the latest package of EShop and update them to your site to have them compatible with the PHP 8.
3. Add more duplicated shipping plugins.
In this latest package, I also added more duplicated Price Shipping plugins and Free Shipping plugins.
4. Add Clean Orders Tool.
So if you go to EShop -> System -> Tools, you will see a new tool called "Clean Orders" which allows you to clean all of current orders. This is useful because while you setup the your store, you may made some test orders. Before you put your store to live, you should clean all of test orders. Many customers have asked about this feature so I added it into this new version.
5. Re-use product images when creating / editing products.
From this version, when you create new / edit existed products, you can select to re-use existing images of other products if you want.
6. Update 2 payment plugins.
We also updated EShop Moneris and EShop Braintree payment plugins to have them work properly on PHP 8. So if you are using one of these payment plugins, please download them and update to your site.
7. Multilingual improvement.
From this version, you have a new configuration option to require the name of items (categories, products, manufacturers, attribute groups, attributes, etc) in multiple languages. Only when you enable that configuration option, then you need to enter the value for item name in all languages when creating / editing items.
8. Other improvements / fixes:
- Fix the issue with value Delivery Date.
- Fix the issue of validation of country and zone fields at checkout.
- Fix the issue with Recent Viewed Products type of Products module.
- Fix the issue of update speicial and discount when editing product.
- Fix the issue of tooltip in all manager sections.
So please upgrade EShop to the latest version 3.6.3 to have these new features and improvements.
