Commerce 2.0 alpha1 released
2016 will be the year of Drupal 8 and Commerce 2.x projects.
In order to start tracking our progress towards the first productive ready release (which will be beta1 in early March), we're releasing alpha1 of Commerce 2.0.
Behind the scenes we've also created new releases of several dependencies: inline_entity_form 1.0-alpha3, profile 1.0-alpha1, and state_machine 1.0-beta1.
The first alpha release covers the functionality described in the previous blog posts:
Commerce 2.x Stories: Update
Commerce 2.x Stories: Currencies
Commerce 2.x Stories: Stores
Commerce 2.x Stories: Products
Commerce 2.x Stories: Workflows
There's initial cart functionality, which will be completed and expanded for alpha2. No checkout yet, but you can read about the design process in the recently published Acro media blog post.
Download alpha1 here, then follow the installation instructions in our documentation.
Make sure to use the latest -dev version of Drupal 8, cause 8.0.1 has bugs that affect Commerce.
For the next release we are planning to offer a single Composer command that will fetch Drupal core, Commerce, and all dependent modules and libraries.
Next week we'll publish a roadmap that will cover the next phase of development.
