After more than 14 years at OXID I take my leave. None of the ~ 26,320 working hours ever were boring. I learned a lot of new things and had the chance to actively take part in the creation of a brand, piece of software and a community. Thanks a lot for this. Good bye – fare thee well. See you in another angle of this e-commerce world 😉
Please no more open-heart surgery in your productive environment! Use composer on your local dev machine instead after equalizing it with your server environment.
On 15th of February 2018, E-commerce Berlin EXPO will take place again at STATION. If you feel fancy to talk to me, please feel free to pop in or drop me a line.

Today, I want to inform you about some personnel changes and re-structuring at the OXID core development department. Benjamin, Joachim, Alejandro and Tomas to come, Ina and Florian to leave.
The past month was affected by security announcements. Why there still can be found so many unpatched installations of any web applications?
Yesterday, new OXID eShop versions were published: 4.8.11, 5.1.11, 4.10.0 beta and 5.3.0 beta. Other releases, 4.9.8 and 5.2.8 had to be postponed until next week. Read in this blog post more about the details and how to interpret these releases.
As CLAhub is not reliable any longer, we moved to cla-assistant.io in the hope this service is more stable. Previously signed CLAs could fortunately be imported. Please let us know immediately if you find something suspicious.
Thanks to @Haehnchen, a native PhpStorm plugin for OXID eShop is available, very helpful for anybody developing with this e-commerce framework.
The German portal onlinemarketing.de recently published a guest blog post by Herbert Buchhorn of clicks.de. The author used a checklist of SEO specific built-in features, but omitted significant advantages OXID is offering. I will adapt the same check list to show what OXID eShop can deliver from a SEO perspective. As I’m frequently asked about SEO topics anyway, I hope you will enjoy the post, even if you have not read the published comparison.
