Count Down to Launch - Commerce Kickstart 2.0

Watch Commerce Guy Robert Douglass count down the 5 ways Commerce Kickstart revolutionizes eCommerce on Drupal with special guest Moshe Weitzman from Acquia.

Back in August, just days before DrupalCon Munich, we released our beta version of Commerce Kickstart 2. Since then, our “guys” have been hard at work prepping the final version of the software, which serves as an accelerated launchpad for the open-source eCommerce framework Drupal Commerce and enables rapid creation of advanced eCommerce sites.

Well, it’s ready...

Commerce PayPal 2.0 Released

At the end of last year, I began an update to Commerce PayPal guided by Todd Hashimoto of PayPal. Our goal was clear: integrate Express Checkout, PayPal Payments Advanced, and Payflow Link on top of the PayPal WPS / WPP support the module already offered. By the time we hit beta, PayPal let us know just what they thought of our integration... by saying it was the strongest integration they've seen and then joining us to talk about it at DrupalCon Portland.

We've received great feedback from users and developers during the beta period, so I've just packaged a full 2.0 release incorporating a few bug fixes and additional features. Read on for more information about the services integrated and plans for continued development.

Drupal Commerce 1.6 Released

This evening I released Drupal Commerce 1.6 after a fun sprint of last minute bug fixing and feature postponing. My condolences to those whose favorite upcoming features didn't make the cut. : )

The last release of the core Drupal Commerce project was just shy of two months ago. In that time I've had the pleasure of committing 50+ patches from 34 different contributors (including myself). Over half of the contributors to this release were first time contributors to the project, and together they helped us close out 25+ bug reports, bringing our active count down to a mere 26. Can't wait to hit the mythical issue queue zero!

Read on for a summary of the greatest new features and most celebrated bug fixes.

Drupal Commerce 1.4 Release

Commerce Guys recently hosted a workshop to prepare the roadmap for Drupal Commerce 2.x on Drupal 8. During the week, we spent a bit of time reviewing and committing the final patches needed to release Drupal Commerce 1.4. The new version is a maintenance release incorporating 87 patches from 40 different contributors around the world - I love it! These patches add a variety of new features to the core of Drupal Commerce and make it more performant and suited to international usage.

I've summarized the key changes in this post. The full list of changes and update instructions can be found in the release notes on drupal.org.

New features

The Add to Cart form and checkout form have both seen improvements. Most notable on the checkout form is the new setting to allow copying of fields from one customer profile to another. This feature was a part of the Commerce Shipping module but was moved to core and designed to work server side across multiple checkout pages and even between customer profile types that may have different fields. The Account information checkout pane was also updated to support e-mail address verification through double entry.

We included a variety of Views integration improvements, including adding a missing handler, updating area handlers for Views 3.5, supporting redirect destinations on our entity operation links, and adding a node filter to only show product display nodes.

Finally, we added a few features to make it simpler for site builders to build product pricing rules. Foremost among these is a new Price comparison condition that supports multi-currency price comparisons and accepts input in major currency unit decimal values instead of minor unit integer values (i.e. compare in Dollars or Euros instead of Cents). We also added a read only computed property allowing you to use the generic Data comparison condition against these major unit decimal values.
