    framed_140

    We're excited to make available the latest update to Tienda - 0.8.2.

    This release is an important update for all users of Tienda. It fixes over 35 bugs (mainly in the checkout process) and also introduces over 20 new features.

    New Features

    Included in the new features are things like:

    • Changing the image button in paypal
    • Display an article when checkout fails
    • New controls for displaying related products
    • Wishlists (basic wishlist functionality)
    • Ability to 'turn off' special functions (like wishlists and subscriptions)

    Added documentation

    We've also been at work making sure that the new features get documented. If you haven't viewed our documentation section in a while be sure to take a look http://dioscouri.com/joomla-extensions/tienda-ecommerce

    Upgrading previous versions

    Due to a number of functional problems in the last version, we encourage all who are using 0.8.0-0.8.1 to upgrade to this version (esp. if you are using the OPC).

    As with any major upgrade to a large extension like Tienda, we suggest that you always back-up your site (we recommend Akeeba Backup) and install on a test server first (esp. if you have template overrides in use). [This version includes only a few changes that will effect template overrides.]

    To upgrade, you just need to install the new version over top the old version (you don't need to 'uninstall' the old version).

    NOTE: Tienda now requires that the Mootools Upgrade plugin be enabled in Joomla!

    Thanks for your continued use and support of Tienda as a great eCommerce solution for Joomla!

    Enjoy!

    If you need more direct, personal help, we do offer Support Subscriptions for direct assistance in our Support Center. You do NOT need to purchase a support subscription to download or test out Tienda, although that will help us pay our developers and maybe get the remaining bugs fixed faster and add more features.

    #Tienda #ecommerce for #Joomla v0.8.1 update available

    framed_140

    The Tienda team has been hard at work trying to squash as many bugs as possible and we've got the latest release of Tienda to show for it. About 30 bugs fixed, and a few important (but mostly minor) feature changes.

    Most of the changes are related to the OPC (One Page Checkout) introduced in the last release (0.8.0), as well as some EAV (custom fields) fixes and POS (admin-side order entry) improvements.

    Feature changes

    The 0.8.1 features are mainly related to issues key to those who extend Tienda (template developers, plugin writers, and others who need to otherewise customize Teinda). In addition, we have removed core support of sh404sef. We are moving this to a plugin-based solution (same for all 3rd party integrations) to be able to more easily update it without the need to update the core of Tienda. [NOTE: We do NOT have a plugin version of this integration available at this time. If you need this plugin, please vote for it in our development site (http://projects.dioscouri.com) or let us know in the Support Center. When we get enough votes - or a sponsor - we'll add this to the Dioscouri Marketplace.

    We need your help to get Tienda stable!

    We're getting very close to having a stable (1.0) version of Teinda ready for release. In the past two months we have resolved more than 75% of all reported bugs; however, we've also introduced a few new features, that themselves may have introduced bugs. We really need your help

    There is a reason that Tienda is listed as a 'community' project - and it's not just because it's available for free to the community. We need the Community (that's YOU) to help with the development of Tienda - even if you are not someone that knows how to code.

    Right now the most important need we have is for users to test reported bugs.

    We have over 50 bug reports listed that have not been 'confirmed'. That means that one person reported the bug, but nobody else has been able to duplicate the bug (or nobody has taken the time to test it on their own site).
    We could really use your help to give those bug reports a test and see if they are reproducible  (i.e. a bug) [or if they are just user configuration issues.]

    We've made it easy for you to see the open bug reports - and they are even categorized by the 'type' of bug (payment plugin, checkout, reports, etc.).
    Just view this list:
    http://projects.dioscouri.com/projects/tienda/issues?query_id=73
    That will list all the current bug reports that need to be confirmed.

    If all the Tienda users would just give ONE bug report a test, and report your findings on the ticket, we could probably reduce our bug list by 50% in just a few days. That's mainly due to the fact that some of these bugs were reported for the 0.7.x series of Tienda and probably have already been resolved. Also, about 25% of bugs that users report are actually due to improper configuration of Tienda (not actual bugs).

    So, if you could spare 15-20 minutes in the next few days to test one or two bug reports, it would greatly speed us in getting to Tienda 1.0.0 (and all the other cool stuff that will happen once we get to a stable version).

    To get started testing, please join us on our development site.  Registration is free at: http://projects.dioscouri.com
