Drupal Commerce Ready to Build Stable, Drupal 7 Online Stores

Commerce Guys Says Beta Opens Floodgates to E-Commerce on Drupal 7

PARIS and SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - February 25, 2011) - Commerce Guys, global open source e-commerce software publisher and the leading force behind Drupal Commerce, announces release of a development-stable, beta version ready for building online stores. The beta is a stable path for developers, without changes to tables, fields, or APIs, and includes upgrade paths and automated testing. Commerce Guys would like to thank the community's developers for reaching this stable point so soon after the release of Drupal 7 last month.

"Drupal Commerce is now at a stable release, making it ready to build high-profile online stores," asserts Damien Tournoud, CTO at Commerce Guys. "We already experience a lot of demand for e-commerce on Drupal 7 and we already see hundreds of stores getting built with Drupal Commerce."

Ryan Szrama, VP of Community Development at Commerce Guys, claims, "Now is also a great time to get involved extending Drupal Commerce with custom modules for shipping, fulfillment, coupons, payment services, reporting, etc. Drupal Commerce is a very sound framework for e-commerce. The beta is a clear green light for developers to start building the vast toolkit of cool features and customizations!"
