OXID eShop Versions 5.0 and 4.7 Available

OXID eShop Versions 4.7 and 5.0 AvailableLast week we proudly published the new versions OXID eShop Enterprise Edition 5.0 and OXID eShop Professional and Community Edition 4.7.

Intrigued why the versioning was split? Basically, we decided to focus feature-wise on Enterprise Edition especially to serve clients with high load scenarios, as well as with the need for enhanced scalability. Of course both, Professional and Community Editions benefit from the essential software changes, for example in the framework and core, as well.


These are the features and improvements in detail:

  • Improved caching system (Enterprise Edition only)
    – Completely revamped cache manager
    – Varnish reverse proxy
    – support 
  • Master / Slave capability (Enterprise Edition only)
  • Checkout compliance (AKA German “Button solution”)
  • Implementation of the EU cookie guidelines


Maintenance work:

  • Removed Basic theme
  • Replaced Zend Platform by Zend Server support
  • Refactored the bootstrap process
  • Introduced a new file structure
  • Introduced an external file for own configuration options
  • New module events defined in meta data
  • etc…
