Update highlights

The most important part of this release is: This product now requires PHP 7.3. This is a requirement set by one of the most important 3rd party libraries used by eCommerce, so it's entirely outside of our control. This library has had an important update that needed to be included in a release prior to Jan 1st 2021.

Please be aware that if you are not able to update to PHP 7.4 yourself, you should contact your web host and ask them to assist you with upgrading.
PHP 7.2 has been officially declared end-of-life and no longer receives security updates. Continuing to run PHP 7.2 may expose your website to unpatched security vulnerabilities or exploits.

The U.K. will no longer be classed as an EU country as of Jan 1st 2021, and its sales tax rate will no longer be automatically updated past that date.

This version also improves database query performance of the release / download lists in the front-end, meaning the functionality will scale better when you have a lot of releases available.

Update highlights

A new feature has been added to the order log; CSV Export. After you perform a search from the order log page, a new button will appear to download the resulting log entries.

This export also necessitated a few other features; separate tracking for order paid and order reverse dates. Historical log entries were updated based on payment profile log entries.

Lastly, the order date will no longer update when the order is paid or reversed, since this is now tracked by those two timestamps.

Complete Change Log

Change: Licenses are now deleted when a user is deleted
Fix: Ensure expired license alerts only attempt to send for licenses with a valid user record
Fix: If payment was received for a since-deleted order, a server error would occur
Update highlights

This version adds a new back-end statistic for tracking products sold, which is currently only intended to be used by 3rd party developers.

Furthermore, it refreshes the design of the license list by adding direct links to editing license info, and purchasing add-on licenses (if they are available for the license's product). The number one question received @ DBTech is "how do I buy add-ons after buying the product", and it should now be more obvious.
The refreshed license list also displays the product's requirement labels.

The other major change involves VAT and geolocation. It is now no longer needed to enter an API key for a 3rd party webservice, as VAT validation is now done using the VIES validation webservice made by the European Union themselves.
In previous versions, the old webservice was also responsible for IP address lookup, which is now handled by GeoIP instead. This means your customers' IP addresses are no longer transmitted to any 3rd party service.

As a result of these changes, the API Key option has been removed.

A multitude of other smaller fixes have also been included, please see the full change log for more information.
