Again, thank you to everyone who has upgraded to the 2.0.0 Beta in order to help test and provide feedback, it has been valuable.

Now is probably a good time to remind you (in case you've not seen the previous updates) what is new in 2.0:
  • Slight name change and new add-on ID: XR/PM
  • Categorise products with product categories (existing products moved to a default category).
  • New per-category permissions system.
  • All admin related product management tools moved to the Admin CP.
  • Integration with XF2's new purchasable and payment provider system.
  • Simplified checkout process which no longer uses a shopping cart system.
  • Product thumbnails as a dedicated attachment type.
  • Product thumbnail size is configurable in options.
  • Product optional extras can now be purchased any time.
  • More granular control over what coupons can be applied to e.g. specific (and multiple) extras and multiple products.
  • Fairly extensive purchase searching in the Admin CP.
  • Custom product fields.
  • Ability to control notifications sent out when releasing a new version, allowing a combination of sending alerts/emails to purchasers.
  • Ability to post product updates into a specified forum.
Also worth remembering that there is a coupon valid until April 10th that will give you 20% off renewal:


Worth noting that even if your purchase isn't already expired, you can renew early, if you wish, and an additional year will be added onto the end of your existing expiry date, so now is a good chance to save money on future renewals!

Here's the changes in this version:
  • Display appropriate message when a data list is empty in the Admin CP.
  • Use proper thumbnail function in data lists in the Admin CP.
  • Prevent errors when viewing the purchase list in the Admin CP when the associated product no longer exists.
  • Prevent error when deleting products.
  • Unregistered users, if they have the "Purchase products" permission, will now see the "Buy" buttons but be prompted to register.
  • Fix a JS error if user has no permission to use coupons.
  • Fix an error in the legacy product_callback.php file.
  • Ensure the last_update field in the product table is updated when a new supported version is released.
