I was amazed to look back and realize that the last release of Ubercart 1.x was 1.6 on November 3, 2008. I've been meaning to get to a new release for some time now but just never had the time. Since then we've had 45+ patches committed to core, representing a host of minor bug fixes, code clean-ups, usability improvements, and sponsored features and updates. Many thanks to our various sponsors and contributors, all of whom are visible in the Ubercart 1.7 release notes.
So... get your update on* and let us know how the 1.7 release drives!
Word on the street is a 2.0-beta3 should be hot on its heels.
*Please update responsibly. Don't drink and DROP.
