Spree 1.1.0 Released

Spree 1.1.0 has been released. We’ve been hard at work the past two months getting this release ready. This is also the first Spree release to support Rails 3.2.×. All it took was 790 commits by 34 different authors (including many first-time committers.)

Here’s a list of highlights of what is contained in the new release:

  • Support for Rails 3.2.x
  • Product groups have been moved to a stand alone extension
  • Major overhaul of the API
  • Simplified the internals of Creditcard model
  • Replaced meta_search with ransack
  • Instant activation for live analytics
  • Several other minor changes

Please see the Github compare for a complete list of changes in this release. Please see the Spree 1.1.0 release notes for more details.

Spree 1.0.4 Released

Spree 1.0.4 has been released. This is just a minor patch release that contains several minor fixes made since the prior release. There are no security fixes contained in the release so there’s no need to upgrade unless you’re experiencing one of the problems fixed in this release.

Please see the Github compare for a complete list of changes in this release. If your store is not yet running on a 1.0.x version of Spree you are encouraged to upgrade at your earliest convenience. Once Spree 1.1.0 is released we will no longer be maintaining versions of Spree prior to 1.0.x except in the case of a critical security fix.

Spree 1.1 Release Candidate 2

We have just released Spree 1.1.rc2! In this version, you’ll find bug fixes for bugs detected within the first release candidate, as well as some refactoring.
Pending any other issues brought up on the Spree issues, this will be the final release candidate before the actual

Probably the most substantial change from this release candidate is the clean up of the Creditcard
. We don’t anticipate any problems with these changes, but if you do find
some, please bring them up on the Spree issues page.

If you want to see all the changes that have gone into this second release candidate since the first, be sure to check out the comparison
on GitHub.

One final note, both the Railsdog and Spree teams are at Railsconf this week! Come find us and talk to us about how you’re using Spree.

Spree 1.1.0 Release Candidate

Spree 1.1.0 is now available as a release candidate (rc1.) This means that the official release is imminent and we request your assistance in testing the code before we do so. As part of this process we have created a new 1-1-stable branch in Github. As the branch name implies, the code in this branch should stay fairly stable over time as we move towards and beyond the 1.1 release.

What’s in the Upcoming Release?

  • Support for Rails 3.2.x
  • Product groups are now a stand alone extension
  • Major overhaul to the API
  • Replaced meta_search with ransack
  • Several other minor changes

Please see the edge version of the release notes for more details

Using the RC in your project

Since the spree_cmd gem defaults to the latest official releases for Spree (and the associated payment gateway gems), it is recommended that you use the following approach to install the RC in a new project:

<p>spree install mystore —git=git://<br />

For existing stores you can follow the standard process of updating your Gemfile

<p>gem ‘spree’, ‘1.1.0.rc1’</p>

and then install and run the migrations

<p>bundle exec rake spree:install:migrations<br />
bundle exec rake db:migrate</p>
