21st December 2016 by Harald Ponce de LeonWe wish everyone a great holiday season and a fantastic start in 2017!
Special thanks to the team, our community members, and our partners - thank you for your continued support in not only helping us, but also continuing to welcoming and helping new store owners joining the community.
Our highlights during 2016 include the launch of our new Live Sites website, our new German website, and the development of a new osCommerce Online Merchant v2.4 Joli release series currently in beta.
The upcoming v2.4.3 version will include a tool that inspects the database schema to display the differences with the installed database structure compared to what is expected from the core database structure of the release. This plays an integral role in supporting upgrades and migrations from our earlier v2.3 release series, and also supporting database schema changes Apps need to perform.
