Magento is already very impressive and the outlook of the 1.1 features confirms that you do not only talk about changes and improvements, but you also get your hands dirty rather quickly. I really appreciate that!

Working mostly for Swiss and EU customers I particularly appreciate the EU tax improvements. It would also be very important for all EU shops to comply with the European E-Commerce Directive which is already reflected in the ”Terms and conditions for german shops” extension. As you can see from the E-Commerce Directive this does not only refer to German shops, but to all shops located in the EU.

I played around with Magento’s template/layout/skin engine the last couple of hours and realized that some of the (non CSS) image buttons being part of a store’s skin are not yet subject to localization. Wouldn’t it make sense to have a locale folder in the skin folder tree, too (just as in the app/design/frontend folder tree)? How are we supposed to provide localized (non CSS) buttons?
If this is already supported, please just ignore this statement and give me quick pointer as to to how this is achieved.

Thanks and keep up the good work!

Hi there,

Just installed it, everything runs smoothly.

The feature that I’m really looking for is the webservice. Being able to add products from a custom CMS, is just great.

The Taxes issue seams to be solved (EU).

Great work guys.

I appreciate adding more defined customer attributes, but I think a better system would allow for infinite flexibility much like your product attributes.  You can’t anticipate every possible way that a retailer will want to cross-cut his or her database, so why try?  Better to enable them to segment their customers according to what matters to them.  For my store, for example, we lump customers into various groups—those interested in baby products, pet products, etc.  Moreover these groups can overlap, so your current method of grouping customers won’t do the trick (i.e., we need a many-to-many relationship).  We also group according to recency of purchase, frequency of purchase, and other classic marketing metrics (google RFM and you’ll see what I mean). 

Anyway, that’s my $.02.  Would love to see you go in the direction of enabling more user customization much like your product attributes system but for customers (maybe even categories for that matter).

The new version looks really great! Especially the extended tax support for other countries. One function I really would like to see (perhaps in the next version smile) is that you can compare configurable products. Besides the ‘really’ configurable attributes (e.g. shoe size), there are still a lot of attributes you can compare between products.

However I found a little bug in this version. When you browse the detailpage of a product (and you have already have a product in your cart) the shoppingcart shows up in the right top corner. If you click on ‘Checkout’ the page just reload instead opening your cart.

Thank you for these really great new features smile
I have 2 questions.
Where can I find sample data for magento 1.1? I assume that the database schema is not the same with 1.0.
Also, I try to install the modern theme, but after the installation I got the following error in the admin area:
“Fatal error: Call to a member function getNoticeStatus() on a non-object in /Users/konrous/Documents/pararam/magento_1.1/app/code/core/Mage/AdminNotification/Model/Inbox.php on line 82”
Is the modern theme compatible with 1.1?

Thank you very much

Konstntinos

Great Release!

But the bug with DataFlow, after product import not showen in category, all status and visibility parameters are set!

If after product import press edit button and save the product, in category product is visible!

How to figure out? Maybe there is another field to set in import profile to enable product?

Great Release !

Thanks a lot for your work on the European tax system. Bundle product and Virtual product is also a great feature that I will be happy to use in the next stable release.
There is one think you can easily do, and it will be great for all Magento users: improve the promotion module by adding Action. For example:
“Buy X of product Y and get a gift” -> the gift will be a product which is in the catalog and it will be free if the customer buy x of a product.
“Buy X and Y and get a gift” -> if a customer buy product X and product Y he will have a gift
....
It is not an important feature but it would be great.

Again thanks for your work.

Hello,

I have imported my catategory tree (only around 160 categories). And It’s amazing!.. With the previous version, I need to define the memory_limit over 96M and and now it works even if the memory_limit is set to 32 (in fact my limit was 16 to have finally a fatal error).... Thanks a lot for all you do. Great work!

EDIT 06-16 : Sorry but when I wrote this we were on friday evening and I was probaly tired and I did a quick test in a hurry… And It seems that I carried away : with a memory_limit set to 64M you cannot manage more than 145 categories. I will post a new message to expose how I have tested this. But at this state, my conlusion is that Magento definitively required a dedicated server. It’s a real problem for those who just want to test, at first, their project technically and economically…

Looking forward to installing this when I get home.  Quick question about your svn though: Why can’t I browse from branch to branch?  I am using Tortoise on my windows workstation at work, and I have to type in the different branches.  I can’t just go to /source/ and see then all listed for me. Can that be fixed?

How did you import your categories? The direct SQL way or programatically?

Thanks

Kudos to the great work!  I installed the SVN version to my local server, the page load speed is very impressive ( I couldn’t work in my local server with the v1.0 because it was and still is painfully slow).

I see template area has added many new folders, that means many more features are added, which is great, however I’d been thinking, would it be better if these new add-on (including those already existing features such as Paypal Pro, Paypal UK etc) are optional modules/items that can be installed via Extension? Maybe now the time isn’t ready to remove them to somewhere else because Magento is still considered quite new and that people need to see what features it has pre-installed (?).  I do feel that, somewhere down the road, Magento shouldn’t load all modules, especially Modules that only cater for certain geographical users, instead, let users choose what Modules they wish to install.

Thank you for the hard and great work!

I agree with chinesedream, but on the other side, spending time on having modules added into the downloader to uninstall them for testing .. I would prefer to have this release on time. You could remove folders manually smile

@Magento team: eu tax looks great, oscommerce module include into the alpha is still buggy (see all bugs reports done), looking forward for the end of the month/begining for July !!!
