Dear nopCommerce community!
We are pleased to announce the official release of nopCommerce 4.50. This version has many new features to look forward to and we can't wait to hear what you think of it.
Download. Please visit this page to download the latest version.
Changes. We've migrated nopCommerce to .NET 6 (the latest available version of .NET platform). No other major features have been introduced with this release as our development efforts were focused on architecture improvements, source code refactoring, further enhancements and fixing bugs. Please find release notes here.
Requirements. Please note that nopCommerce 4.50 requires Visual Studio 2022 (17.0.0) or above, .NET 6 SDK
(6.0.101) (download), and ASP.NET Core Runtime (v6.0.1) - Windows Hosting Bundle
P.S. You can download .NET 6 SDK and ASP.NET Core Runtime 6.0.0 for other operating systems (e.g. Linux, macOS, Windows) and families of processors (e.g. Arm64, x64. x86) here.
Upgrade instructions. If you're upgrading nopCommerce to version 4.50 from one of the previous versions, please ensure that your connection string contains one of the following parameters: "Encrypt=false" or "TrustServerCertificate=True" (depending on your server requirements). You can manually add these parameters to your connection string in the \App_Data\appsettings.json file. This step is caused by the "Microsoft.Data.SqlClient" library that changed the default value of the "Encrypt" option from "false" to "true".
Thanks a lot to the entire nopCommunity community!
