What's New in OpenCart 2.2

The new version of OpenCart – OpenCart 2.2 – is heading towards the release. The beta version ( is available on GitHub already.

Whether you're a store owner or an extension developer, you probably know what this means – lots of changes (both good and not so good ones – OpenCart updates tend to break things once every while).

So, what to expect in OpenCart 2.2? In short – lots of things.

Some of them are:

  • separate admin area for theme-related settings
  • even more directory structure changes (moving classes around)
  • function code changes (e.g. loading views, languages and generating links)
  • even more modifications to OpenCart's Event Handler.

Last month, our fellow OpenCart developer Vladimir Stasiuk (sv2109) did a thorough review of the changes in OpenCart with code excerpts and examples. You'll definitely want to check out his blog post and take a look for an in-depth look at what's coming up!

Meanwhile, we've released an update to MultiMerch Core with invoices, settings and lots of other things. See our Facebook post for more information and have a great day!
