We have some exciting news to pass on to customers using X-Cart 4 (a.k.a. X-Cart Classic) as their platform of choice. While Carrie was in attendance at the X-Cart Meetup in Orlando last week, the X-Cart team provided updates regarding the future status of X-Cart 4. It is our understanding that X-Cart will be continuing to support the X-Cart 4 branch for at least another 5 years.
Part of the reasoning for this appears to be that most of the current users of X-Cart are using the X-Cart 4 branch as opposed to X-Cart 5 – to the tune of approximately 75%. As such, customer demand seems to be the propelling factor behind the continued support. However, X-Cart 5 leads the way among users new to the X-Cart family.
BCS Engineering will continue to support the X-Cart 4 branch as long as we have customers requesting support. We are also in the process of ramping up our involvement with X-Cart 5 by porting some of our more heavily-requested mods to this branch. At the same time, we are increasing the number of X-Cart 5 related customer projects we are fielding. As always, if you are looking for support on an upcoming X-Cart project, feel free to contact us for a free quote!
