This update of nopCommerce 3.40 includes no major features have been introduced with this release as our development efforts were focused on performance optimization and fixing bugs. Performance and memory usage optimizations are really very significant.
Highlight features and changes:
- Performance optimization. Really a lot of changes.
- Added full support for in-store pickup. This way a customer should not enter shipping address during checkout. It can be enabled in admin area (shipping settings).
- Dropped jQuery mobile version support. We already have responsive design available out of the box (since 3.30). Maintenance of both approaches is quite complete. It can also improve performance (less IO, output caching - to be done, etc). It'll simplify development and customization (only one view change instead of two, etc). Responsive design becomes much more popular today. It's just more user-friendly.
