Hybrid Ecommerce
August 16, 2022
osCommerce brings a new type of Ecommerce platform to the market - a so called Hybrid Ecommerce. So what is Hybrid Ecommerce? We see it to be the best of both worlds - an open source (and free) Ecommerce solution that is also hosted as if it was SaaS (or EaaS - Ecommerce as a Service). This means users (businesses and developers) do not need to worry about hosting requirements and at the same time have full access to the source code and can change or implement any custom features, integrations, etc. Of course, it is always possible to host osCommerce on your own server! It is just so much easier (and quite likely more cost effective!) to use osCommerce's own hosting solutions.  Hybrid Ecommerce from osCommerce Users can choose to have osCommerce installed for free on one of our servers to try osCommerce before use.  Once satisfied with its features, speed, robustness - they can choose to move to a paid osCommerce hosting account or to download and use osCommerce site on their own server. Move to an osCommerce-managed server is done automatically. Server environment is optimised for osCommerce, allowing it to give the best performance. It is also managed and upgraded with the latest server software. Most importantly, osCommerce installation can be automatically updated to the latest version of osCommerce (and Applications) as well. Any customisations, done right, will stay but all the standard modules and the core of osCommerce will be regularly updated, bringing fixes, changes, new features. Full FTP and mySQL access are offered to businesses and developers should they require such.   ...

Issue #17: December 2, 2002

By Harald Ponce de Leon

December 2, 2002

Release Plan
Internal Issues
Bug Reporter Update
Busy Month

Release Plan

The release plan for 2.2 has been redefined by no longer making Release Candidate releases. Release Candidates are mainly released when no new features are introduced to concentrate on fixing existing bugs.

As we plan on introducing new features the further we progress to 2.2 (for example template structure, register_globals compatibility) we have decided to release Milestones instead.

Internal Issues

Nothing much happened the past week on commits as some internal issues were being addressed. Our development methods have been redefined and some issues regarding the updated coding standards are still pending.

A draft plan of Milestones of what features will appear in which releases leading to a finalized 2.2 release is currently under review, and will be made available on the support site when finalized.

This list will replace the Current Tasks section and provide a more detailed information of what the progress is to a feature and Milestone release.

Bug Reporter Update

Sections on the support site that are in need of being updated have begun last week with the Bug Reporter seeing the first set of updates.

Updates are planned for the Contributions section, the Community front page, and a replacement for the Frequently Asked Questions with a Knowledge Base system which will allow the community to keep the section up to date on the questions and issues existing on the forums.

The My Account section on the support site will also be replaced with the forum account system - though this is only currently needed for developers on the support site to update bug reports.

Busy Month

November has been an extremely successful month for osCommerce with just under 400 commits made (more than the previous 4 months combined) and yet again spiking the amount of traffic occuring on the support site.

This can be nicely seen on the following graph:

Congratulations to all!
