Hotcakes 1.9.1 Updates Ensure a Great Holiday Sales Season

Hotcakes Commerce 1.9.0 is Ready for you!

This is a very hectic time of year for all of us, in many ways, and for varying reasons.  It's the holiday season already. The year is coming to an end, we're all shopping, preparing for respective visits and feasts, and so much more.  Let's not forget that our customers are and will be visiting our sites more and more frequently from this day, until after the New Year.  For these reasons, we hustled as best we could to ensure that you get some maintenance updates available for your site.

Version 1.9.1: Maintenance Updates

In version 1.9.0, we released a number of updates to the promotions engine, and we continue to add and solidify our multi-lingual feature set as well.  In this release, we focused on ensuring these areas received a little "love" to make the lives of you, your team, and your customers all easier.  We also threw in some updates in a few other areas too. 


As always, please test your upgrades on a development version of your site first. Be sure to back-up prior to upgrade, and merge any noted viewset changes as desired. We are not responsible for any Hotcakes that get spilled on the floor.

Viewset Changes

Viewset changes unfortunately happen with every release as we add new default features, fix bugs, address browser compatibility issues, and so on. As you might imagine, some of these updates are “nice to have” while others are very necessary updates for you too.

In the very least, you should always review the Cart, Checkout, CSS, and JavaScript updates when there are any. These are areas that can directly affect how well your store is performing.
