Spree 0.9.0 Released

Posted on September 22, 2009 by Sean Schofield

Spree 0.9.0 has been officially released. This is a major release with several new features and improvements. The most anticipated new feature is coupon and discount support. The Spree core now ships with a minimal set of coupon calculators and provides the framework for building much more powerful custom logic. Speaking of calculators, Spree is now sporting a significantly improved system of calculators.

The new release is also compatible with Rails 2.3.4 which contains some crucial security fixes. This release also contains some signficiant improvements to product variants. It is now possible to configure different product images for each variant and to display the specific variant image in the shopping cart. Please also see the very detailed release notes for more information on the release and how to upgrade an existing version of Spree.

Spree continues to improve its i18n support and is proud to announce the addition of the following localizations:

  • Thai
  • Hebrew
  • Dutch
  • Finnish
  • Mexican Spanish

If you have a new localization to add or wish to make improvements to an existing one, please see our contribution guidelines for information on how you can contribute.

We are already hard at work on the next major release. The massive growth in real world deployments of Spree has provided us with valuable insight into possible new features and improvements. We’ll be doing a major push to add core features as well as new extensions. There will also be a concerted effort to document and update the existing extensions. Stay tuned!
