Ahh, you've been with us for months... You've trudged through the alphas, submitted your patches and features requests, and seen how much you could break in the betas. For our part, we've been busy coding and fixing. Now we can all take a deep breath and enjoy a long awaited entrance into the wonderful world of release candidates.
Today we've pushed out Ubercart 1.0-rc1 with special thanks to the security team at Drupal.org taking some extra time to review our release. Feel free to review the notes on that post at Drupal.org and get to using the release candidate.
The name of the game now is final bugfixes and installation corrections. Pre-release testing has already turned up one issue that will be fixed in the first intermediate release. We're looking for stability now so we can confidently put out a 1.0 release and think once again about the future of the project.
And for all those who keep asking... this does bring us one huge step closer to Drupal 6 compatibility.
As always, please review the update FAQ as you grab the latest and greatest version of Ubercart. Many thanks to all those who have submitted bug reports, patches, and suggestions to make Ubercart even more secure, flexible, and easier to use.
