OXID releases minor update of eCommerce software

Here is the second patch of the OXID eShop. You may download the free Community Edition here:http://www.oxid-esales.com/en/download/open-source-ecommerce-solution-oxid-eshop-community-edition

Alternatively, you may want to patch your existing system from a former revision to the new version:http://support.oxid-esales.com/versions/

How to find out the revision number of your shop?
Fire up your browser and call http://www.your_shop.com/pkg.rev. If you do not get a number there, you have revision number 13895.

You will find installation instructions within the package you download. The regular update manual available at our website will not cover all necessary steps this time, because the encryption of the user passwords has changed (see below). Please make sure you read the file named INSTALL contained in the package carefully.
