Arcavias Core

Arcavias is an e-commerce framework for Web shops, consisting of an e-commerce library, an administration interface, and different frontends. It's a modular stack which offers flexibility and speed. Unlike other Web shops, it's not a monolithic application. Instead, you have a choice between several user frontends, and you can adapt them to your needs or write one of your own.

    Release Notes: The core contains a complete coupon infrastructure. It also contains new panels in the admin interface for managing coupons and codes, and the front-end parts to enable customers to redeem coupons during the order process. Furthermore, the most often used coupon methods are included: fixed rebates, percentage rebates, free shipping, and presents. Each coupon method can be enhanced by decorators that implement further restrictions like a minimum order amount or a product that must be in the basket. The configuration options for the front-end and the controllers are now completely documented.

      Release Notes: The minor update now fully supports Facebook's Hiphop PHP VM. It makes installation much simpler by providing an install shell script and packages the required dependencies for development. It fixes some bugs, like the product counts in the catalog filter. If the combination of attributes was too high, not all available products were counted. The basket now only displays product images, and the price details were unified in all lists.

        Release Notes: The first stable release will be actively maintained for one year and supported for at least three years. The usability was significantly increased based on extensive crowd testing. Zoom for product images, limiting variants to existing ones, and adding products to the cart without page reload are only a few ones. Others are block pricing, the ability to add downloads, and showing images in the faceted search. Performance when searching large amounts of data was increased. The index rebuild was significantly boosted. Arcavias can be installed in most shared hosting environments now.

          Release Notes: This is a minor release of the Arcavias Core and the Arcavias Demo Shop. Products added to categories in the Administration Interface are now automatically included in the index. Furthermore, this release cleans up the translation files (removing fuzzy tags) so that all translations are now shown in the front end. The text export in the Administration Interface is much faster by optimized sorts. This release improves the filtering of invalid UTF-8 characters entered in the front end or Administration Interface.

            Release Notes: The library implements PayPal IPN handling and optimizes the catalog index rebuilds for 100000+ products. Developers can use the phing "createext" target to create a new extension skeleton. In the frontend, promotion products are displayed in the list view and product suggestions in the detail view. Also, a session-related section for dynamic user content for the last seen products was added. The basket plugins now check for prices of product attributes. For editors, the category IDs are shown in the "Catalog" tab. Furthermore, invalid UTF-8 characters from Microsoft Word are removed.
