nopCommerce v2.00 BETA released

Thursday, July 07, 2011

We are extremely happy to announce the availability of nopCommerce v2.00 BETA for download. If you would like to participate in the testing portion of our development cycle and report bugs you find, this beta release might be for you. This release is unstable and should not be used anyplace where your data is important.

The final version release is now scheduled for the end of July. If you need any help with beta version or want to report a bug, please use our forums. If you want to fix a found bug, you're also welcome to create a new fork on our CodePlex repository (found more info about it here)

nopCommerce 2.00 BETA 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.

Highlight features & 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)
  • Other architecture improvements
  • More user-friendly admin area
  • Added unit tests
  • A lot of refactoring


Some features are not implemented yet. But they should be finished with the final 2.00 version. Here are some of them:

  • One-page checkout
  • It doesn't work in medium trust (Automapper issue)

The upgrade utility will be provided a bit later

Great news! Good work.
I just tested this and I am surprised how seamless the whole thing works.  However, there are issue with a few wrong links here and there as well as a lot of  missing image (at the admin side).   I  am glad this is on MVC now, very pleasing.

Looking Good!
From what I have seen so far it is a significant improvement in performance speed over 1.9 with the same constent. Looking forward to seeing the variants functions fully working. My clients are waiting with great excitement after seeing my demo 2.0 site running.

Fantastic Effort - Congratulations and sincere gratitute from the entire community
Thank you very much! we all know how hard you've all been working on this new version of nopCommerce. We can now say we are on the cutting edge of technology when it comes to shopping cart software!

You have leaped ahead of the pack by several orders of magnitude as no other product comes close, not even AspDotNetStoreFront (an expensive shopping cart if you want the source code).

I have yet to read the release notes, but i hope the issues with shipping calculations have been resolved by now and we don't have to wait until the final version is released. I think that is where I wil start playing with the beta version and I will post my findings.

You guys rock!
I'm happy to see that you've migrated to MVC 3!  I was hoping you'd do it sooner rather than later.  I can't wait for the final release.  Thanks again guys.  You rock!

Great Work!
As the senior developer for an I.T. security firm, I'm responsible for almost 30 e-commerce sites, and I've been very impressed with the functionality of nopCommerce.

A group of enthusiastic developers, making "edge-pushing" solutions.

Much appreciated - you people rock!

I am totally new to nopCommerce and eCommerce in general. What attracted me here was a Tweet of ScottGu. He mentioned that nopCommerce was now on MVC !

I have developed a couple of simple applications in MVC3, I hope that will be enough for me to "really" understand your nopCommerce software.

Thank You very much for your hard work.
