Ubercore renamed to Drupal Commerce

As I outlined in my blog post on the subject, Ubercore has been renamed to Drupal Commerce. This is unfortunate, because I liked the short URL, but d7ci just doesn't have the same ring as d7uc. So, go ahead and update your bookmarks and prepare to double down as we make up for lost time!

Drupal Commerce (DC?) isn't as sexy name as überfamily, but I can live with it if that is the price of peace;)

Let's go ahead indeed and make it ub3ri5h!

Well sorry but i feel glad that "ubercart" or ubercore is not used anymore : ugly mix between deutsh and english to my french hears :-)
Well, I don't know if the uber was coming from Deusth...

glad the name makes sense now!

what was it again before?... over-nucleus? outside-kernel? or was it everywhere-middle? anyway, it was an oxymoron.

I like the name. Will be much easier to present Drupal with Drupal Commerce, than Drupal with Ubercart to clients :)

Good luck!

There's already Ubercart, you don't honestly think they will put an ecommerce in drupal core do you ? I'm confused what is this drupal commerce and why when we already have Ubercart ?

Nah, this definitely isn't supposed to be a part of Drupal core. The name was changed to indicate that due to the concerns outlined in my blog post this project is no longer tied to Ubercart. It represents a significant re-implementation of the core systems Ubercart depends on for basic e-commerce functionality. Originally, this effort was intended to revitalize Ubercart on Drupal 7, but now it will be developed in parallel to other Ubercart upgrade efforts.

I am quite glad about the name change.

I always felt slightly uncomfortable about the old name.

"Ubercart - One cart to rule them all" - just has a slightly fascist ring don't you think?
