The release will include many bug fixes and performance optimizations in addition to some new, long-awaited features.
Starting with version 4.1 we will migrate Smartstore from ASP.NET to the more modern ASP.NET core. ASP.NET Core is a cross-platform open source framework from Microsoft for building modern Web applications. Among many other advantages of ASP.NET Core, we expect faster and more convenient development. After releasing the ASP.NET Core based release in the third quarter of 2021, we will continue the development of Smartstore as usual with new great features.
Stay tuned and look forward with us to the upcoming Smartstore releases!
