I just started a new client project and made the jump to .9 ... so far I'd say it's more than usable. Sure, it might be somewhat of a moving target over the next month or two, but once you get everything working as it should there's no reason you have to keep pulling the updates, right? That's my take.
The changes from .8 to .9 for extensions isn't all that drastic from my experiences - after a little bit of hacking I managed to update the simple product manager extension, and I've never created my own before. The bulk of the update work was with the UI changes needed but to me that's the easiest part. Lastly - .9 is soooo much prettier. Just my $.02. - Joel On Wed, Mar 17, 2010 at 8:36 AM, Jim Gay <j...@saturnflyer.com> wrote: > > On Mar 16, 2010, at 11:50 AM, Charles Roper wrote: > > > Great, thanks for the feedback, that's most helpful.
