We are extremely happy to announce the availability of nopCommerce v2.00 for download and upgrade. Visit this page to download the latest version and get involved in the nopCommerce Community.
nopCommerce 2.00 was rewritten from scratch. Our development efforts were focused on moving nopCommerce to ASP.NET MVC 3.0, architecture improvements, further enhancements and fixing bugs. We also decided not to ship nopCommerce with all that shipping & payment modules that were included in the previous versions (about 35 modules). Only some of them are available out of the box. All other payment modules will be available as plugins.
• Architecture improvements
• Moved to ASP.NET MVC 3.0 (Razor syntax)
• Really pluggable architecture (just drop a plugin to the /plugins folder in your nopCommerce directory)
• SQL Server Compact support
• Code-First Development with Entity Framework 4 (data access)
• More flexible ACL implementation
• More user-friendly admin area
• Added unit tests
