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...

Zen Cart 1.5.1 Released
About an hour ago, an update to Zen Cart was released by the developers. This update is not going to be submitted for PA-DSS Certification as version 1.5.0 was. The update fixes several bugs that people have discovered as well as adds some new functions. I am listing the improvements below. Two things that jump out at me as pretty important are: 1. New coding for PHP 5.4x which all servers are eventually going to have to move to, if for no other reason than PCI Compliance 2. CAPTCHA support on contact and create account pages. There are a little less than 120 files that have been revised in...

Image Handler for Zen Cart 1.5.0 Released
Image handler has always been a very popular mod, but because of security reasons the code did not work with Zen Cart version 1.5.0. The coders of this module have now released a version that will work with 1.5.0 and can be found here: http://www.zen-cart.com/index.php?main_page=product_contrib_info&cPath=40_47&products_id=2098 If you have a cart running 1.3.9 and the image handler mod was the main reason why you have not upgraded to 1.5.0 - now is the time to get your cart to the highest level of PCI compliant security!!
