Today I am happy to inform you about some exciting new features in our upcoming version 22.214.171.124. We agreed to have the following items as part of the development roadmap:
Checking system requirements in installation script
The below set of new features will lower the barrier when installing OXID, especially for beginners:
- Indicate whether issues exist with red, yellow and green lights
- Refuse installation if something is totally wrong
- Include hints what to do if system requirements do not fit
Generic data import
This new feature allows to handle generic data imports from the admin panel to enable easy data transfer from other applications. You will be able to import data from third-party systems (eCommerce, ERP, etc.) while applying tables and fields step by step manually.
Application-specific data import
OXID eShop Community Edition 126.96.36.199 will contain modules to directly import data from other shopping cart systems, starting with Magento, others will follow. Import of articles and customers from other shop systems will be as easy as clicking a button in the admin panel.
Last but not least, 188.8.131.52 will ship with integration of OpenID (http://openid.net) for authentication and authentification.
We expect version 184.108.40.206 to be released within a few weeks.
