Hi,

I am using magento version 1.2 now.
I want to upgrade it to 1.6.
Could you please advise which verison is better to use for?
And some guys suggest use version 1.5 is better?
And what is the different between 1.2, 1.5 and 1.6?
Will all our products need to re-upload after upgrade?
I found a website that advise have following changes of Magento 1.6:
=========================================================
Changes

TheFind integration was removed
Google Optimizer was removed (it will be supported as a core extension)
Improved how discounts are applied to sub products
=========================================================
Is that mean all of the products’s advertisment will not be show on google base products search and The find.com again?

Hope somebody help soon.

Miu

I think that 1.2 is fastest of all, if you don’t have strong server you shouldn’t upgrade. There should be also problems with update, modules incompatybility, you should thing twice before start updating magento.

HI,

Thanks for your reply.
However when we upload a CSV into smartftp in order to upload some new products.
The speed is very slow and upload processing always stop once finished upload 50 items even if our CSV have 700 items or 1000 items.
In the past, our upload speed is very fast and non-stop. We can upload around 25items per hour.
But we only can upload around 12-15items per hour now. ( We use the version since 2-3 years)
Do the problem is because of the version is old?
