Magento Version 0.6.12510 Available for Download

In this minor release 0.6.12510 we have rewritten the installation wizard, and fixed some minor bugs reported by the community. There are still known issues and bugs that we are working on and expect to resolve them in future versions. There are now two types of packages available - full and light. The full package includes the sample product catalog (including images), and the light version is data free.

    Magnentonifisent! Will install it later today and play with it.

    One question; Can we, if we really really want to, install this version in a totally non-critical production-environment? In order words, will all future releases be able to _upgrade_ from for example this version?

    To upgrade… we overwrite the current files?

    @Primary Numbers - you can try, although I recommend you do a fresh install.

    Is it possible to integrate Magento in another CMS easily? I’m thinking about MODx or similar (’cause e-commerce modules are not free or incomplete)…

    14RoyRubin from Los Angeles, CA|posted September 17 2007

    @koan - theoretically this is possible.

    OK, I just came across Magento and am *really* excited about it. I’ve felt the pain of other ecommerce apps (OSC, ZenCart, etc.) and this looks awesome.

    Is this being used in any production environments yet? i.e. is it safe for me to try and use for clients now or are there major components still to be released?

    I’ve developed with CakePHP for the past year or so… how big is the leap to using the ZF and why did you choose to use it instead?

    Magento is a godsend!

    I stumbled upon it via, and rejoyed immediately upon checking out the front and backend.

    I hardly see myself modding the backend, it is perfect! Oh yea, the frontend is great too, but I am so glad it has a templating system.
