Since the Last Update

June has again been focused on optimisations, bug fixes and improvements plus the ongoing effort to get the Rails 4 upgrade over the line. Delaying R4 is to make sure that it can handle the load and that as many bugs as possible are out before we move everyone onto it. Thank you to the stores that have been beta testing the R4 version.
