March 2018 release of Saleor is out! During this iteration we were working on multiple new features both in the storefront and the dashboard. Apart from that we are focused on developing the GraphQL API and Dashboard 2.0 (you can track our plans and progress on Github projects).
Find some of the key highlights of this release below.
The storefront is now multilingual! We have added the ability to switch the storefront language, selecting from the list of languages that you can configure in the settings. Thanks to our translators on Transifex, Saleor provides translations for almost 20 languages now (half of which with coverage over 50%).
Creating orders through the dashboard
From now on, staff users can create new orders directly from the dashboard. Orders are first created as editable drafts that can be changed in any way by adding products, shipping methods or discounts. Once the order is ready, it can be confirmed and turned into a regular one.
We have replaced the concept of delivery groups and splitting orders with a new fulfillment flow, which we believe is much more intuitive and results in a more understandable UI.
Customize SEO metadata of pages visible in the storefront, such as product collections or custom pages.
Customizable shop navigation
Storefront navigation menus are now configurable from the dashboard. You can easily link to categories, collections, pages or custom URLs.
Email schema markup
Outgoing emails use schema.org markup to render actions directly to customers’ inboxes.
Background images for categories and collections
Customize your product listing pages with background images.
- Store all product attribute values as objects (dropped support for the “free text” attributes)
- Generating thumbnails in a Celery task with a pre-warmer
Plus plenty of closed issues and pull requests with minor improvements and bugfixes.
Big thank you 🙏 for your support and contributions! 👏
