Today, Arastta team is pleased to announce Arastta 1.6 stable version with great new features, improvements and bug fixes.

As always, you can update your current Arastta to the latest version with one-click from the Arastta admin panel's update center. Please see update instructions below for more details.

You can download the latest stable version and start to create your free eCommerce store today:

This new release is named Tianjin which is a metropolis in northern coastal Mainland China and one of the five national central cities of the country. We would like to thank everyone who contrubitued to Arastta 1.6 with bug reports, tests, suggestions and development.

Now, let's see what we have new in this update:

eCommerce releated

Blog: One of the most wanted and awaited features for Arastta is finally ready. Now, you have a fully functional blog feature in Arastta. Create nested categories, blog posts and tag them. One post can be assigned to one or multiple categories. And 3 different menu types are available in the menu manager: Blog home, category, post.

Stripe payment gateway: A new payment gateway is added to the Arastta marketplace. If you want to have Stripe as a payment gateway on your store, you can install it with one-click and start to sell.

"Products" module enhancements: Products module was added to the core in Arastta 1.5 version and it's one of the most welcomed features among the users. Now we have added ability to display "all" products from your store. Of course you can define the number of displayed products and even you can filter to display all products from a specific category.

Added common pages to URL Manager

Multilingual eCommerce is one of the most important features that we always keep in mind for Arastta while improving it. Thus, we have added system's common links, like Cart, Checkout, account, register, login, contact etc pages, to the Arastta's URL Manager page. So, now you can translate your system's common URLs to all languages available on your store from the URL Manager.

Installer

Internationalization of demo data: Arastta has translations for world languages, so users can use it in their own language easily. But till now, when Arastta is installed, it's loaded with default English demo content for Order Statuses, Email Templates etc. From now on it's possible to translate all these content in to the other languages and Arastta will be installed with those translations out of the box.

Security

CSRF validation in catalog: With 1.6 version, Arastta became a more secure platform with implementing CSRF protection for various inputs used in the different pages. You can define those inputs and routes from the Security tab in Arastta's Settings page.

General

HTTPFul, a new HTTP client: Httpful is a simple, chainable, readable PHP library intended to make speaking HTTP sane. It lets the developer focus on interacting with APIs instead of sifting through curl set_opt pages and is an ideal PHP REST client.

You can check GitHub release page for more details.

How to update?

Updating your current Arastta store to the latest 1.6 version is very easy and it must be updated smoothly.

Please take full backup (database and files) of your Arastta store before updating it.

Then you can update it via Update center in admin panel. For more information refer to Update documentation.

After updating your Arastta to the latest version, please do not forget to clear your cache from System > Settings > Cache tab. Click on the Clear Cache button.

    How about adding changelog ?
    1.6.0 released, and then few days later 1.6.1 added silently

    Sure, there is a changelog link in your Arastta admin panel nearby the update button. You can also see it from here https://github.com/arastta/arastta/releases

    Hardly silently as it's displayed a red icon in your upper right corner in Arastta Admin. ;)
    But I agree, it could have been added a release note here for all releases.
