Spree 0.4.0 Released

Posted on October 02, 2008 by Sean Schofield

Spree 0.4.0 has now been released. We have decided to jump version numbers in order to avoid possible confusion with developers who have already installed an “edge” version of the source locally on their machine as version 0.3.0. Going forward, the edge version of the source will be considered 0.4.99 and any patch releases to this version will be considered 0.4.1, etc. This is basically the same approach taken by the Rails project.

The current release of Spree contains many significant improvements from the previous 0.2.0 release. Some of the highlights include:

  • Rails 2.1 support
  • SEO improvements
  • Security enhancements
  • Public assets for extensions
  • Mailer templates for extensions
  • VAT inclusive pricing
  • Taxonomy

We’re looking forward to seeing some of the great third party extensions for Spree which are being written as you read this. The Paypal Website Payment Standard extensions is also currently being overhauled to be compatible with the new release.

Spree 0.4.0 requires Rails 2.1. It is not yet compatible with Rails 2.1.1 due to some issues with the resource_controller plugin. Enjoy the new release!
