OXID eShop 4.6.0 will come with a set of great new features, such as support for downloadable products. Using an early beta version, I produced a screencast about this new function and added it to the screencast section of OXIDforge. If you haven’t seen it yet, why not take a look now? Note that some things might have changed since the screencast was produced, so you might find some differences to the present beta version.
You may also want to have a look at the roadmap for version 4.6.0 or at the changes on the download page – it documents, step by step, the new functions we plan to introduce. And while you’re inspecting the beta version, please send us your feedback and any bugs that you might find.
By the way: the „downloadable products“ feature was originally contributed by marmalade.de, as I mentioned in an earlier blog post. If you have coded a feature that could fit into the standard OXID eShop software, please take a look at the contribution page on OXIDforge. This explains how a contribution can be made, whom to contact and what are the surrounding conditions. If you think your new feature would be an interesting and useful contribution to OXID eShop, feel free to contact us and tell us all about it – we would love to hear from you!
