Dear nopCommerce community!
The official release of nopCommerce 4.30 will take place in two weeks. Before that, we invite everyone to join testing of nopCommerce 4.30 Release Candidate (RC), share the feedback and suggestions. We’re incredibly grateful to all the users who have been trying out the BETA version of nopCommerce 4.30 and have been giving us feedback every step of the way.
This version has many new features to look forward to and we can't wait to hear what you think of it. Here are the main changes in the upcoming version:
• Significant performance enhancement. We revised nopCommerce caching system and moved away from Entity Framework. And now we can say that this new upcoming release will be the fastest version of nopCommerce ever!
• Upgrade to .NET Core 3.1. We always use the cutting-edge and latest technologies. Due to this, nopCommerce 4.30 will have higher performance and security level.
• MySQL support. You can use nopCommerce with MySQL. One of the most demanded features is now available out of the box.
• Facebook Pixel. Use the Facebook pixel plugin to track your website visitors' actions, optimize ads, build targeted audiences, and remarket to people who have already taken some kind of action on your website.
You can find the full release notes here.
