SmartStore.NET 3.1.0

Highlights

  • Wallet: Enables full or partial order payment via credit account. Includes REST-Api. (commercial plugin)
  • Liquid template engine: very flexible templating for e-mails and campaigns with autocompletion and syntax highlighting.
  • Cash Rounding: define money rounding rules on currency and payment method level.
  • Modern, responsive backend: migrated backend to Bootstrap 4, overhauled and improved the user interface.
  • Enhanced MegaMenu: virtual dropdowns for surplus top-level categories and brands (commercial plugin exclusively bundled with Pro Edition).
  • RTL: comprehensive RTL (Right-to-left) and bidi(rectional) support.
  • Amazon Pay:
    • Supports merchants registered in the USA and Japan
    • External authentication via Login with Amazon button in shop frontend
    • Several improvements through the new Login and pay with Amazon services
  • (Perf) Faster image processing: new processing and caching strategy! Thumbnails are not created synchronously during the main request anymore, instead a new middleware route defers processing until an image is requested by any client.
  • TinyImage: scores ultra-high image compression rates (up to 80 %!) and enables WebP support (commercial plugin exclusively bundled with Premium Edition).
  • UrlRewriter: define URL redirection rules in the backend using mod_rewrite notation. (commercial plugin)
  • Address formatting templates by country

Breaking changes

  • Message template customizations are lost due to the new template engine. You have to customize the templates again. No automatic migration, sorry :-(
  • Amazon Pay: The plugin has been changed to new Login and pay with Amazon services. The client ID has been added, which has to be created in Amazon Seller Central and saved in the payment method configuration.
  • (Dev) Calls to cache methods Keys() and RemoveByPattern() require glob chars to be present now (supported glob-styles see https://redis.io/commands/keys). Previously these methods appended * to the passed pattern, which made pattern matching rather unflexible.
  • (Dev) Hook framework now passes IHookedEntity interface instead of HookedEntity class
  • (Dev) Completely removed all EntityInserted<T>, EntityUpdated<T> and EntityDeleted<T> legacy events. We were using DbSaveHooks anyway, which provides a much more powerful and way faster pub-sub mechanism for database operations.
