Spree 0.6.0 Released

Posted on February 03, 2009 by Sean Schofield

Spree 0.6.0 is now released. The primary feature of this release is Rails 2.2.2 support. Normally upgrading to the latest Rails version is not too tough but this version was much more complicated due to the i18n features. Thanks to Brian Quinn for doing the tedious work of replacing all of the Globalite stuff with the new Rails 2.2.2 i18n functionality. You should also read his excellent writeup on this topic.

This release includes several additional fixes and features. Here are some highlights:

  • Support for routes.rb inside extensions instead of using class_eval
  • SEO Friendly URL’s for Taxonomy
  • Switch from attachment_fu to paperclip
  • Paranoid deletion of products
  • Standardized security model
  • Rake tasks for creating new translations and maintaining existing ones

Please report any issues you discover. We’re already hard at work on the next release. We’ll also be working to update the documentation and wiki as we go.
