What's happening in the world of Drupal Commerce.

Drupal Commerce 7.0-alpha2 Released

The first Drupal Commerce alpha release received little fanfare here somehow. In the press of DrupalCon Copenhagen, I neglected to post the news here of all places! Well, I'm fixing that right now with this little announcement for our second alpha release that just went live minutes ago. You can download it from our project page on drupal.org.

Most everything worth saying about the release is in the release notes, so I encourage you to read those. The short version is we now have a fully functioning Payment module, making alpha 2 a great time for payment integrators to start roughing out their Commerce integration. There's also a great base test class for Commerce tests with documentation to go with it, so folks looking to dig into the modules and APIs are encouraged to do it while writing some much needed tests.

The Specification handbook here has also received quite a bit of love to go along with the release, so I encourage you to poke around and provide feedback on its structure and on the content that's actually there. For now you'll need to look in the Info hooks and Utilizing the core APIs sections as the others are just scaffolding.

This is the first I've heard of Drupal Commerce. I've watched (the video) of your session at Copenhagen, I've played with the demo, and I've downloaded and set up a version for myself... and I love it.

We've got a legacy system using Drupal 5 / Ubercart 1 and the difference, as you would imagine, is astounding.

Well done I say, well done!

And thank you.

I'm glad to see some more activity. I've loved using Ubercart, but some of the code was just a mess on the back-end. It was really hard to figure out what was happening, and sometimes impossible to make the required changes to get a site running up to a clients' expectations.
