New Tax Structure Proposed

Updates to the tax structure in the current 2.2-CVS development sources has been proposed to add greater flexibility in setting default tax rates. This includes replacing the static global TAX_VALUE parameter with a solution configurable through the Administration Tool to allow products to have different default tax values (food, hardware, books, etc).

More information can be read online at:


New Support Team Assembled

A new Support Team has been assembled to take care of the support services available on the support site. This team will be led by Jan Wildeboer, and has Christian Lescuyer as a member.

If you're interested in joining this team, please contact Jan Wildeboer.

Knowledge Base Proposal

The Frequently Asked Questions section on the Support Site will soon be replaced with an interactive Knowledge Base section. This section will provide an improved navigation structure and easier to read knowledge base entries in an attempt to help new comers, shop owners, and developers understand how osCommerce works.

User feedback/comments will be possible, with the option to rate the knowledge base entries.

The feedback provided will be reviewed by the Support Team to improve the quality of the content.

Live Discussions Server Change

The Live Discussions server has moved from WebGroup Media to the Open Projects Network. The Open Projects Network is reachable at irc.openprojects.net.

Thanks go to WebGroup Media who have allowed us to use their server in the past.
