Digging through Instinct’s new support site for WP E-Commerce, GetShopped.org, the team have laid out their immediate goals for WP E-Commerce in the first-half of 2010 including:
- First phase database optimization
- Products to Custom Post type
- WP e-commerce settings will be moved to options array
- Advanced UPS integration
- Advanced Marketing page
- Advanced Shipping Zones
The big one above is “Products to Custom Post type“, this is a huge shift from dedicated “wpsc_” tables in the WordPress database which to be honest was a pretty easy way to connect to WP E-Commerce content.
Visit the WP E-Commerce Roadmap page for more updates, here’s how the Instinct team see the page:
This page is a description of our current thinking on how we intend to get to WP e-Commerce 3.8 and beyond.
I’m looking forward to seeing regular blog updates and forum interaction from the Instinct team and community developers in 2010!
