The Spree 2.4.0.rc3 release is out now. We would like everyone to try it out, and report any issues before a final version is released. We expect that 2.4.0 final will be released in a week or two unless there are any major issues discovered.
What’s new in Spree 2.4? We’ve completely rewritten the return authorization system in Spree, and made it much more robust and flexible. There are now also default html email templates, extendable order populator options, and an updated admin order form.
You can view the Release Notes for more details, and upgrade tips. Please free to submit a PR adding any of your own upgrade tips or gotchas not mentioned in the release notes.
Once Spree 2.4.0 is released we will begin work on a 2.5.0 release, which we will be focusing on Rails 4.2 support & major performance improvements. Once we’ve provided Rails 4.2 support in what is expected to be a quick release, we will be moving on to a major Spree 3 update!
Older Versions of Spree
If you are using Spree versions 2.0.x and older you should consider upgrading as soon as possible. Our current Release Policy is to only maintain the latest two versions of Spree along with the current master.
Spree 2.4.x will be released in the near future, and will mean the end of official 2.0.x support.
