We are proud to announce an advancement of the osCommerce 2.2 release series with the new osCommerce Online Merchant v2.2 Release Candidate 2 release. This second release candidate addresses issues introduced in the previous release candidate release and addresses longer termed issues from 2.2 Milestone 2.

No major features have been introduced with this release candidate as our development efforts are focused on our upcoming 3.0 release, but does include the following changes:

  • Over 15 bug fixes and improvements.
  • Improved register_globals compatibility layer for PHP 4.3+ servers.
  • New and updated payment modules that include PayPal Express Checkout, PayPal Direct Payments, PayPal Website Payments Standard, Authorize.net AIM and SIM, WorldPay, and more.
  • Introduce the ability for payment modules to show checkout buttons on the shopping cart page.
  • Introduce the ability for order shipping and billing addresses to be defined from an external source (ie, payment method).
  • Introduce a public status flag on order status levels to show or hide orders from customers depending on the order status level.
  • Introduce a download flag on order status levels to allow customers to download virtual products at specific order status levels.
  • Introduce version signature strings to payment modules that link to the add-ons site for easier version tracking.
