[iSenseLabs Weekly 66] New OpenCart Features & Fixes, Video Tutorials and Latest E-Commerce News

This week we started analyzing the final form of OpenCart 3.0 and will soon begin publishing fresh content about the new version, as well as updated modules that will be compatible.

Since OpenCart 3.0 is still a fresh release, we recommend store owners to wait before updating their stores.

We will soon make ExcelPort compatible with the new OpenCart version so users who already own or obtain the extension will be able to migrate their data to 3.0 when they update their stores.

More good news - NitroPack is currently being updated to work with the latest OpenCart version as well.
