eShop PRO XL5 Support Discontinuation - vwdesigns - 31-12-11

As with all products, there comes a time when particular versions reach the end of their support life. We have already stopped support for versions 1.5 to 6.5, in March 2006. We will no longer be able to offer support for XL5. Version 9 was originally released in October 2009. After the 30st March 2012 we will no longer be able to provide any support or patches for any version of eShop PRO.

The reason why we have taken this decision as some of the features associated with php5.2 will no longer be supported under php5.3 and php5.4 onwards. All our new software will be backward compatible with php5.2, php5.3 and php5.4.

Our new eCommerce software is VrCommerce PRO which can run under any php5.x operating system.

We will also be working on a new version of eShop PRO XL5.3, which will be compatible with php5.3.x and eariler versions of php5.2.x

The amount of time required to convert existing eShop versions to the latest standards is not viable, as each version has been customised for each specific customer.

Customers who are currently on support contracts with us, we will send a separate email to those customers. From today we will no longer offering support contracts for eShop Pro XL5.
