nopCommerce 4.7 Release

Apologies for the recent radio silence from us. We were holding off until nopCommerce 4.7 was released and that got delayed a bit but fortunately, as of last Friday, this new release is now official. So without further ado……

We are very pleased to announce the release of nopCommerce 4.7, a significant update to the open-source e-commerce platform. This release brings forth a plethora of improvements, enhancements, and bug fixes that will elevate your online store's performance and user experience. The most notable change is the migration to .NET 8, which provides a solid foundation for enhanced performance, scalability, and development efficiency.

Embracing the Advantages of .NET 8

The nopCommerce development team has diligently worked to migrate the platform to .NET 8, the latest iteration of the .NET framework. This migration allowed them to take advantage of the most recent advancements in the .NET ecosystem, resulting in significant architecture improvements, thorough source code refactoring, and optimised performance.

To ensure a smooth transition to nopCommerce 4.7, please verify that you have the following prerequisites:

- Visual Studio 2022 (17.9.0) or above

- .NET 8 SDK (8.0.204)

- ASP.NET Core Runtime (v8.0.2) - Windows Hosting Bundle

It's worth noting that the .NET 8 SDK and ASP.NET Core Runtime 8.0.2 are available for various operating systems (Linux, macOS, and Windows) and processor families (Arm64, x64, and x86). You can obtain the appropriate versions from the official Microsoft website.

One of the main advantages of .NET 8 is that it is Long Term Support (LTS) release. To explain, Microsoft releases major .NET versions annually in November each year. Short Term Support (STS) releases occur in even-numbered years and LTS are release in odd-numbered years. STS get support and patches for 18 months, LTS gets support for three years.

Here’s a graph showing .NET versions and the version of nopCommerce that uses them:
