Zen Cart BETA V 1.5.0 released
Zen Cart developers announced the latest release of Zen Cart - version 1.5.0 which is in BETA.

This version concentrates on PA-DSS compliance certification.

Changing Your Admin Folder Name
One of the many improvements in zen cart version 1.3.9 is that it will prompt you to change the name of your admin folder to something different once you have completed your installation - IF you are doing a manual install. In fact, the program will not even allow you to log into your admin area without first renaming the admin folder and also removing the zc_install folder. This is an added benefit to help your site be more secure, because hackers KNOW that the "out of the box" name for the admin folder is /admin. If you are using an automated installation program supplied with your hosting...

USPS International
Effective 1/1/2011 - the USPS shipping module needs to be updated for those who accept international orders. You can find the fix for this on the zen cart forum here. Linda McGrath has posted an update for this on post # 26. If you install this, please follow the instructions she gives on the forum. Also, be aware that the domestic USPS rates will be changing on May 2011 - so you will need another fix installed at that time.

Zen Cart Version 1.3.9g released
From the zen cart developers - a new update is out - version 1.3.9g We will be scheduling people as they order this upgrade - 1 to 2 websites a week. For those using 1.3.8a or 1.3.7, the cost of an upgrade is $300 and does NOT include upgrade of any mods that might be installed. If a mod does not overwrite core coding, it will most likely work with version 1.3.9g. For those already on the 1.3.9 series - upgrade to current version is $50 - and again, if a core file that is in the new upgrade has been overwritten by a mod, additional charges will apply to merge coding for the new version....
