Last week end we where invited to the annual so called LAHN party. It is called like this because the awesome town Weilburg is situated at the river Lahn and because of the homophones "Lahn" and "LAN". The meeting is completely organized by users of the OXID eShop themselves – special thanks to Martina and Michael! – nevertheless OXID employees as well as solution partners are welcome. So four of us, Roland (CEO), Oliver (Key Account Manager), Frank (Member of eFire-Team) and me went there to meet the people personally that use the software we build.
The first day at CeBIT usually is not the busiest one. My personal impression today was another one, at least in the Open Source areas but also at all booths relating to E-Commerce like Softengine, one of our ERP partners. Tomorrow at 11 a.m. I’m invited to a panel discussion titled ‘Open-Source vs. Cloud Commerce’. Looks to become interesting…
Herewith a short notice from the train on the way to CeBIT 2009, where you’ll find various meeting points with OXID people, OXID products or OXID partners.
We’re happy to inform you about some exciting new features that will be included in the upcoming version 18.104.22.168 of OXID eShop, such as UTF-8 support, automated data import for XTC and osCommerce.
Users of the OXID eShop Community Edition now have the opportunity to use the connector for free, which gives access to the professional actindo ERP system family.
The actindo GmbH, who provides the connector, will give detailed presentations at CeBIT hall 5, at stand A-58-12!
Within a regular security audit, we encountered a security issue where specially crafted parameters can lead to unauthorized administrative access to the shop backend. All OXID eShop editions version 4 are affected.
