      I second that!

      Here are several places I look regularly for release notes/announcements:

      - In the "Announcements" section of the user group, Jimmy posted release notes in March, April, and May and then stopped.

      - There also is an "Updates" category on the 3dCart blog which hasn't been updated since March. (there was a blog posting about v4.7 update in July, but that wasn't categorized under "Updates" so if you didn't stumble upon it when it was new you probably won't see it.)

      - I get "News" in my admin homepage every time I log in to my account -- that would be a great place to announce updates.

        Gonzalo posted in another thread today that they are rolling out a change to 5% of users today, and the rest within a week, specifically addressing a database security issue.

          FYI... We were upgraded to 4.8.1 today. Now, all of the user page tracking seems to be missing. So, whenever a customer leaves the site and doesn't buy, you can't go into the "not completed" area and see what pages they visited while they were on the site. Same thing for new orders. You may want to check and see if it's a problem with your sites too - because if it is - open up tickets so it's resolved as quickly as possible.

          BTW - when I mean "missing", i mean the link is physically still there to view the information, but the data is missing.

            That feature has been long gone from our site for several months now, so it wasn't related to 4.8

              Well it would be nice to know these updates are about to hit before they happened. That would probably explain why my google stats for performance went insane and my admin experience has sucked using certain sections for the past week. I firmly believe everytime my stats go to hell it is because of an update that is being prepped or is about to happen.

                Ok, we were just upgraded and I can still see the users last actions, pages visited etc in Uncomplete orders.

                  I wish our stats were just as clean as yours for site performance..

                    The 4.8 release will include a security update for the way customer's passwords are handled, the rich snippets and some additional fixes.

                    We're still working on the release notes but these will be available by the end of the week and available before all users are updated.

                    The update process only takes a couple minutes per account, so it's possible to experience some slowness during that period but it wouldn't last over 20 minutes.

                      Can you elaborate on what Tags are used for the rich snippets? We use a heavily customized template, and just need to know what tags to use.

                        By the time I'm done with it.. I wouldn't even call it a template muaahhahaha..

                        On a serious note, will there be new documentation released along with this? or can you refer me to an updated template that I can comb through and find what I need to drive the code please?
