nopCommerce 3.80 roadmap and estimated release date. Let's discuss

4 years ago
Hi,

We've prepared the roadmap for the next version of nopCommerce (3.80). Here are some of the most interesting ones:

- The main and most important task - Re-design and simplify admin area (please discuss it here)
- Thinking about Auction support (work item) - postponed
- Ability to assign catalog price per currency (work item) - postponed
- And really a lot of other work items. Please find all existing work items for this version here (almost 200 items).

We presume ASP.NET vNext  (asp.net core 1.0) will be released soon. But we decide not implementing it in version 3.80. This is quite new technology and we should give it some time to get mature. We should also give some time for our vendors and developers to get familiar with it (some amount of learning curve). But most probably its support will be added in the next version - 4.00 (we're going to skip version 3.90 to indicate a great step moving to vNext). Actually we're going to implement all the rest active work items before moving to vNext.

Your thoughts and suggestions are more than welcome!

Estimate release time - August 2016 (7-8 months)

UPDATE: Version 3.80 will be released on August 3rd

hi Andrei

what about finishing vendor support.
It is impossible to run a vendor store without aggressive customization.
The main problem is that the orders contains several vendors, the order should be separated by vendors then it would be easy to use payment and charge for shipping per vendor.

thanks

Hi Andrei

I have to agree with Hezy, this one is so long overdue, and so needed to make it a great Multi Vendor solution, I would really appreciate it if you could please add this to 3.80.

Great list Andrei,


- Auction support will be a great addition and will certainly attract more users to nopCommerce

- I agree, adding more features to vendor support will make the functionality more solid and mature. A great addition to vendor support would be allowing store owners to setup one single product page with the vendors list like Amazon. I have explained the feature here. This will be useful when multiple vendors are offering same product but different pricing.

If all 199 workitems are accomplished, this will be the best release ever!!

I see that there are several workitems related to vendors. Couldn't some members of the Nop community accomplish the missing ones?

I agree with taking vendor support to the next level. While I think auction support would bring additional users to nopCommerce, I think it is important to do something and do it well. By adding the above features for multi-vendor, it would make nopCommerce a very, very competitive option for those on other e-commerce systems to switch and make those of us that are already on it very happy!
