A new Quick Order Page, Dynamic Routing, and Server-side Tracking

This double release brings several requested features to Front-Commerce. The most notable ones are the quick order page which allows customers to order products in bulk seamlessly, and different ways to switch to server-side tracking to cope with the decline of 3rd-party cookies.

On a more technical side, we are happy to introduce one of the last missing feature from 2.x in Front-Commerce 3.5: dynamic routing. Built on top of the Remix/React-Router routes API, Front-Commerce dynamic routing allows you to implement any URL structure you want without sacrificing performance or features.
It is unique in the Remix ecosystem, and solves several limitations that were present in the previous versions of Front-Commerce. We are excited to see what you will build with it!

As usual, these releases also include several bug fixes and improvements to the product. Let's dive in and explore what's new in Front-Commerce 3.5.

Vite, Vite, Vite!

We are thrilled to announce that Front-Commerce has migrated to Vite! 🎉
Vite is a tool that helps web developers build websites and web applications faster.

Front-Commerce 3.4 takes the development experience to a whole new level. We have migrated the frontend tooling of Front-Commerce projects from the Classic Remix Compiler to Vite. In an AI-assisted development environment, having fast feedback is key to productivity. That's why bringing faster development feedback was important to us. It also means that Front-Commerce now benefits from the latest features and improvements of the Vite ecosystem.

In addition to these technical changes under the hood, we have also introduced new features and improvements to the core of Front-Commerce. We have stabilized new public core APIs for developers, added new payment modules, and enhanced the testing experience for instant feedback 🚀

This release is very dense as it spans two usual release periods. Due to the technical challenges of migrating to Vite, we needed more time to ensure a smooth transition and a great developer experience. We hope this extended delay will be worth it for you.

💌 We would like to thank our partners Adexos, PH2M, and Webqam for their valuable feedback during the beta testing phase of this Vite version. Their input has been crucial in ensuring the quality of this release.

🤓 If you haven't tried Front-Commerce 3.x yet, now is the perfect time to do so. Let's dive into the details of Front-Commerce 3.4!

New packages, a Magic Button revamp, Attraqt recommendations and cloud improvements!

Happy New Year, everyone! We hope you had a great holiday season and are ready to start the new year with a bang.

We are excited to introduce a range of new features and enhancements to Front-Commerce's core. While we are still prioritizing core fixes and stabilization, we have also been able to ship some significant features to Front-Commerce Remixed: all Magento 1 modules, Adyen Payment, and Akamai Image Manager are now available as standalone packages under the @front-commerce/*** namespace.

We have also revamped the technical foundations of the Magic Button and introduced a new concept called server services in Front-Commerce 3.2.

The 2.x branch also received some love with the introduction of Attraqt personalized recommendations and a few bug fixes. Be sure to upgrade to Front-Commerce 2.28! As time progresses, we anticipate more projects transitioning to 3.x, and the number of new features released for both major versions will gradually decrease.

Let's dive in and explore what's new in Front-Commerce, and for Front-Commerce Cloud customers.

A Blend of New Features and Core Stabilization

Black Friday is fast approaching. We understand that you've been putting a lot of effort into getting ready for the holiday season, and our support team has been there to support you every step of the way.

This release is unique as it signifies a return to our regular release schedule with both new features and bug fixes every 6 weeks. This is also the inaugural release that combines new 2.x and 3.x minor versions. Just to remind you, Front-Commerce 3.0 was a major version that introduced new technical foundations without adding new features. Now, with Front-Commerce 3.1, we're back to delivering new features for this major version.

Some of these features are also incorporated into Front-Commerce 2.27.0, facilitating quicker adoption for existing projects. As time progresses, we anticipate more projects transitioning to 3.x, and the number of new features released for both major versions will gradually decrease.
