Product News & Updates

OroCommerce Beta 5 is Now Available

December 1, 2016 | Oro Team

We are excited to announce that we now have a new Beta version of OroCommerce available. The new OroCommerce Beta 5 version includes the following features and enhancements:

Workflow Improvements

  • Workflows can now be fully translated, including workflow step and transition names, form attribute labels and messages.
  • Built-in translation management UI allows you to use your own translation packages and allows you to customize translations locally in your system.
  • Automated workflow transition triggering allows for setting up automatic transitioning using both time-based and event-based scheduling.

Product Catalog

  • The new catalog search functionality is now available on the store front-end. The search engine takes into account all product catalog settings, including customized category and product visibility, custom pricing, and multi-language localizations. It also supports content personalization on multiple websites in OroCommerce Enterprise Edition.
  • Additionally, OroCommerce Enterprise Edition users may enjoy enhanced quality of the search results, performance and scalability of the search indexing and querying via integration with the new message queue back-end (RabbitMQ) and the search index engine powered by ElasticSearch.

Shipping & Order Management

  • Shipping rule conditions were extended to allow for creation of shipping rules using deep line item inspections (based on whether all or some line items satisfy certain conditions).
  • Back-office users can now modify shipping method selections in sales orders.
  • Numerous improvements have been made to the shipping integrations module (e.g. weight unit conversions, caching of shipping calculation results, option translations, etc.)

Store Front-end

  • Major improvements (including caching, pipeline rendering of multiple page parts, sub-tree rendering and working with data) were done to the layout engine.
  • We also started adaptation of the default store front-end theme to mobile device requirements (work in progress).

Management Console

  • New improved menu management UI allows for customization of the main navigation menus for individual users, organizations (enterprise edition) or globally.
  • Performance improvements in data grids that use advanced security or operation/action configurations.

Technical Improvements

  • Improved logging module that allows for more flexibility in debugging production environments.
  • New console commands to export and update workflow configuration via YAML files.
  • More store front-end theme pages have been made available in the blank theme.

We have also included a few dozen of small bug fixes and miscellaneous improvements into this release.
