This release is a maintenance release with no significant functional changes. It does include three low risk security patches for issues 795, 845 and 846 – if you are still running a version below 6.0.7 then an immediate upgrade is VERY strongly recommended due to the critical security issue patched in that version.
The release includes a total of 34 bug fixes and optimisations. Details of all changes including the github issue history can be found here : CubeCart V6.0.8 changes.
If you are already running CubeCart V6 or even an older V5 site, then completing this upgrade can often be as simple as clicking on “Upgrade” within the Admin | Maintenance area. However there are some points to note specific to this version upgrade and if you are not comfortable with any of these then we strongly suggest that you order the CubeCart upgrade service from us.
For any customers that are running the Shopdev Vector theme that will be doing their own upgrade, please feel free to Open a Support Ticket if you would like us to make this small code change on your behalf.
Our support team are available to perform this upgrade for any current V5 or V6 website whether you are already a customer of Havenswift Hosting or not – if you would like help or advice, then again please Open a Support Ticket or simply order the CubeCart Upgrade service from us.
