Dynamicweb release 8.8 is now ready for download.
A service release, Dynamicweb 8.8 offers an optimized Ecommerce using the Raptor recommendation engine, further payment method support for recurring orders and saved cards, as well as new minor features; back-in-stock notifications and full customer impersonation. Finally, more than 40 customer-bugs have been fixed.
Dynamicweb 8.8 features a beta reimplementation of product recommendations, using the full power of the Raptor recommendation engine, allowing you to deliver relevant offers and content to your customers regardless of touchpoints and with an optimized performance. With Back-in-stock notifications, you can improve the shopping experience of your customers by automatically notifying interested buyers when a product is back in stock. The Recurring Orders and Saved Cards features are now supported by the DIBS and QuickPay Payment Window checkout handlers. On the UX side of things, administrators can now hide or disable unused or critical product fields for regular users, and the Customer Center module can now list orders based on customer number, allowing several users working for the same company to keep track of who ordered what.
Also featuring: Custom fields for variant options, sort indexing results based on Lucene score, and improvements to the product selector when selecting variants with the same name.
Full impersonation has been introduced, meaning that the impersonator is no longer limited to placing order on behalf of the impersonated user – but has full access to e.g. restricted content like assortments, forum accounts and the customer center. HTML support has been introduced in Forms for Editors, allowing you to e.g. use HTML5-specific input controls validate data such as emails or addresses.
The lightning fast new Search and Indexing engine can now be used instead of smart search when selecting email recipients in Email Marketing, allowing you to reduce system load time when conducting system-heavy queries.
