Will the downloadable products due in the next release work with bundles?
Also, do we have any speculated date as to when it will come out?

Thanks
Susan

Also, will we be able to host files on external servers like Amazon S3 and specify the download link in Magento?

I’ve got very large files and S3 currently works great in reducing the load on my hosting server and being able to handle concurrent connections.

I emailed Magento on this, they told me to post it here. Then nobody replies to the post.
Can someone answer this?

Hi Susan,

I don’t think that anyone (short of the Magento team) can tell you for sure until after 1.2 has been released. That being said, the preview video:

http://www.magentocommerce.com/magento-on-the-fly/downloadable_products_preview/

seems to suggest that it is a normal product type so I cannot imagine any reason they would not allow it to be included as a part of a bundle.

lbrean,

The preview video (link posted in above post) seems to provide a place to specify a URL which seems to suggest you can host your files on Amazon.

What is unclear at this point is how protection of the files and links work to ensure that the links are not shared.

It is also unclear of how large files are handled for use with streaming for example.

Just installed in my sandbox and you can indeed bundle download and simple products.

Where did you download it from?

I have been able to dl local files, but not remote URL files.

I wonder if I have a bad config setting or something.

I can’t find any information on the downloadable product feature.

Are there any wiki entries?

I’ve got one more tab to close before I make it to groups for a search.

Perhaps all of us doing downloads should hook up somewhere and leave the hargood folk alone.

We’re a testy lot…

peace,
Ron
