Zen Cart后续版本开发计划

字号: 小 中 大


Zen Cart
团队发布最新的v1.5及以后版本的开发计划,翻译如下:


离上次发布的开发计划已经有一段时间了,但这并不表示Zen Cart停滞不前,其实社区和团队开发都非常活跃。


过去几年我们内部变化很大,不仅是代码,而且是开发方式。主要是因为PA-DSS认证,尽快很“痛苦”,但是我们很自豪 ...


Zen Cart 是第一个也是仅有的完全通过PA-DSS认证的开源购物车。


过些日子我们会发布为了取得认证我们都做了哪些工作。
过去几年中,电子商务领域的变化很大,也出现新的趋势,包括移动支付、HTML5、响应式设计等令人兴奋的技术。这些以及更多的技术,引领电子商务进入全球商业更强大和重要的地位。Zen
Cart 深知这个趋势,非常注重采用这些新技术以便让店家能够在商业活动中使用。我们很高兴您和我们一起发展。


谈谈发展 …


开发更新
v2.0 已经开发好几年了,我们注意到全球成千上万的店家在使用 v1.x
的代码,他们希望我们继续提供支持,不管是补丁、新功能还是性能改进。因此,我们保证不管是当前的v1.5还是将来的版本都会基于v1.xx的架构。更多请看下面的v2.0说明。


除此之外,说说v1.5的短期开发计划


版本 v1.5.0a
尽快发布
主要是v1.5.0的补丁,以及性能改进
说明:
这个版本不会提交官方PA-DSS认证,因为大部分修改都不影响PA-DSS或是影响很小,一般不必要。


版本 v1.5.0b
我们有可能在v1.5.0a后发布v1.5.0b
,主要包括v1.5.0a的补丁及一些仍在我们开发系统中小的修改。
这个版本也不会提交PA-DSS认证,原因同上。


现在看看'好东西'...


版本v1.6.0 - 一个全新的模板


a) 我们正在为版本v1.6准备一个全新的模板
我们很早就知道现有的默认模板样式陈旧、单调,不能很好展示Zen
Cart的核心功能。好吧,这很快就会改变!


新的模板包含以下重要特点:


全新的视觉和感觉
特别为HTML5制作,可以利用CSS3的功能
响应式设计,不管是在手机、平板电脑还是桌面系统上显示都一样
更容易定制外观,有计划提供样式指南帮助设计人员更快更容易地集成定制模板
产品图像采用lightbox
内置jQuery支持
还有很多


b) 更新 HTML 邮件的样式
c) 后台管理界面的改善
d) 以及其它一些修改... 我们也会在v1.6改进一些功能/更正错误等。


首先会发布BETA版本,然后提交PA-DSS认证,我们会准备版本让v1.6通过PA-DSS认证(需要一些时间)。


日期
我们希望发布这个版本的时间不太长,因此会在版本 v1.5.0a/v1.5.0b 后不久发布。我们会尽快发布
v1.6,计划之中。
还有很多工作要做,请不要询问具体的发布时间!


v1.6
之后版本
前面说过,我们打算继续支持这个平台直到版本v2.0发布且成熟,这意味着v1.6.0之后还会有其他版本。有简单的错误更正,但也会增加功能和改善性能。


版本 2.0
那么版本 v2.0呢?
虽然有些人指责,但它<不是>虚幻的。非常真实...
版本v2.0的开发有进展,我们甚至准备提交PA-DSS认证了。但是,基于我们持续开发 v1.x
系列的承诺,用于大量改进v2.0的资源就有限,因此我们会想办法增加开发v2.0的资源,下个月发布一些相关信息。


我们对当前的开发进程、即将发布的新版本和新的模板都很激动,请随时等待更多的更新和官方消息。


原文如下:



Once again it's been a while since we posted any updates to our Roadmap. But
that doesn't mean there hasn't been lots going on with Zen Cart, both actively
in the ZC community as well as behind the scenes.


The last couple of years have seen some major internal changes for us, not
just to code, but also the way we do development. Most of that was prompted by
PA-DSS certification, and despite the 'pain' involved, we are extremely proud
that …


Zen Cart is the first and only free open source E-Commerce system that is
fully PA-DSS certified.


One of these days we will post/blog a bit about what's been involved from our
side to get that certification.


The e-Commerce space has seen many changes and new trends emerge in the last
couple of years as well, including exciting topics such as Mobile Payments,
HTML5, Responsive Design, etc. These, and many more, promise to re-shape the
landscape of ecommerce into an even more powerful and dominant staple of
worldwide business. We at Zen Cart are very much aware of these topics, and have
every intention of embracing these emerging technologies and empowering
storeowners to leverage these things in their businesses. We're glad you're with
us and look forward to the road ahead.


Speaking of what's ahead …


ROADMAP UPDATE
While we have been actively working on v2 for a few years,
one thing we are acutely aware of is that there are thousands of merchants
around the world who are reliant on our v1.x code and who want us to keep
supporting them, whether that is just bug fixing or new features and performance
enhancements. As such we are committed to not only our current v1.5 product but
also to future releases based on the v1.xx architecture. More on v2 below.


Given that, we would like to share what our short-term roadmap is for
v1.5


v1.5.0a
This is due for release a.s.a.p.
It consists mainly of bug
fixes for v1.5.0 as well as some performance enhancements.
Note: This update
will *not* be submitted for official PA-DSS certification, since most of its
changes have little or no impact to PA-DSS, and are largely optional anyway.
Read on.


v1.5.0b
If necessary, we *may* also release a v1.5.0b fairly shortly after
the v1.5.0a release. This will cover any regression errors in v1.5.0a plus some
other outstanding minor bug fixes that we still have in our Change Management
system.
This update will also not be submitted for PA-DSS certification, for
same reasons as stated above.


Now for the 'good stuff'...


v1.6.0 - Primarily sporting A NEW TEMPLATE


a) We are currently working on a whole new updated template for v1.6.
We
have long been aware that the look of our current "default" out-of-the-box
"classic" template is old fashioned, rather drab, and doesn't present our core
product in the best of light. Well, that's changing soon!


The new template sports the following important features:


a new modern look and feel
built specifically for HTML5, will be able to
take advantage of CSS3 features where appropriate.
responsive, and therefore
works just as well on mobile/tablet displays as on desktops.
easier to skin
and adapt to custom requirements. There are even plans to prepare a style-guide
to help designers put together their custom template updates more quickly and
easily.
lightbox for product images.
jQuery support built-in.
and much
more.


b) Even the HTML-formatted emails are getting a face-lift too.
c) And a
little love behind-the-scenes with the admin interface.
d) And the list could
go on... We will be doing some feature tweaking/bug fixing for v1.6 as well.


After an initial BETA release, it will be submitted for PA-DSS certification
testing, and it is our intention that v1.6 will be PA-DSS certified (although it
may take some time before it is officially stamped).


DATES
We are hoping the time scale for this release will be short, so
should follow along after v1.5.0a/v1.5.0b fairly quickly. We intend to put 1.6.0
out soon. That's the plan.
There's still a lotta work to do on it yet, so
please don't ask us for a release date!


Beyond v1.6
As we said earlier, it is our intention to keep supporting
this platform for awhile yet, until v2 is truly ready and released into active
production abroad. That means there will be other releases after v1.6.0. Some
will be simply bug fixing, but we also envisage some feature enhancements and
performance tuning.


Version 2
So what about v2?
Though we've been accused otherwise,
honestly it is *not* vapourware. It is very real … and work on v2 has been
progressing, even given the focus that we have had to give to PA-DSS. However,
given our commitment to continue ongoing development for the v1.x series, that
leaves us with limited resources to make major progress with v2. We will
therefore be looking at ways we can increase the resources we have available to
work on v2, and you can expect to see some announcements in the coming months
regarding that.


We are excited about the work currently in progress, the upcoming new
releases and the new default template. Stay tuned for more updates and official
release announcements.
