System Wide

  • Added support for full language files other than English. Chinese has been added to this version.

  • When a transaction is completed by the datafeed fails an email is now sent to all users with access to that store.
  • Added ^^sub_token_url^^ as a valid place holder for the receipt email template.
  • Added the ability to cancel your own FoxyCart subscription directly from the admin.
  • The FoxyCart admin is now completely versioned as of 060. This will give us increased flexibility to update the admin and add new features without breaking existing live stores.

  • Added the Issue Number and Start Date for Maestro and Solo UK debit cards.
  • Added a "receipt continue" url to the admin so this value no longer has to be set via JavaScript. This is where the customer will land after hitting continue on the receipt. The default behavior is to return to the initial referrer URL or the store's home page if there isn't a referrer.
