9/7/14 USPS Shipping Module Update

Zen Cart 1.5.3 Released
On July 4th, the developers of Zen Cart released a new version -1.5.3. This version, like 1.5.1, is not PA DSS certified for the credit card industry. However, it is in the process of being certified. Once certified, it is my understanding that a new release (with new number) will come out. This could take a couple of months or longer. Version 1.5.3 contains over 150 additions / fixes from version 1.5.1. This results in 198 CHANGED files and 12 NEW files as well as database changes. For a detailed listing of what has changed in 1.5.3, go to the Zen Cart website here: Some of the more...
