Hotcakes Commerce 03.02.00 Does Some New Heavy Lifting

Upendo Ventures presents Hotcakes Commerce 03.02.00

I know what you’re thinking, “What do you mean, version 3.2 is out? I haven’t heard about version 3.1!”  No worries… Version 3.1 did come out and it was released, but none of the marketing materials went out to announce it.  I’m taking the initiative to announce both releases at this time.  They are exciting releases too – with 3.1 offering support for variants in promotions and 3.2 supporting UPS Freight.

Release Summary

Version 3.1 brought with it some interesting updates, including allowing a promotion to be assigned to one or more specific variants.  Virtual directory support was also introduced, but at Upendo Ventures, we’d generally suggest against most stores using that feature (as a best practice).  Community member, Mark Allan also fixed an odd bug related to how cookies are saved across various web browsers.  The 03.01.00 release notes will have more details.

In version 3.2, we introduce a new UPS shipping provider that allows you to ship using their freight options.  We also spent some time tidying up.  There was a tax calculation issue reported and an issue where some customers may not know their payment was declined.  You’ll find out all of the details about the release in the Hotcakes Commerce 3.2 release notes.

Thanks for the Help from the Community

Every release of Hotcakes Commerce couldn’t happen without the community lending their helping hands. In this release, the following community members were instrumental in the updates found in the 03.01.00 and 03.02.00 releases.
