    Release Notes - 4.10.1

    This last month the 3dcart Development Team has been working really hard, and it shows in the long list of release notes for 4.10.1.

    Most of these come from the great feedback we received from 3dcart merchants in our Uservoice portal (3dcart.uservoice.com). So keep submitting your ideas to help us improve 3dcart. Some great examples are the ability to Duplicate Promotions and to Preview Order Emails.

    The most impressive improvement on 4.10.1 is about performance, the changes made to the cache of the application have shown an increase of 60% on the Website Speed of the Home Page and Category pages.
