SearchFit Shopping Cart v8.9 (Jan 05, 2010), Changes and New Features:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. NEW: Website menu templates were enhanced to allow web designers to build mega dropdown menus. The additional "group-every" and "group-wrapper-tag" attributes are now supported for the "foreach-categorytype", "foreach-category", and "foreach-subcategory" elements.

2. NEW: ChiefAdmins are now able to use custom SQL conditions to search through all database products fields. Custom SQL Condition Examples:
a) Show non-link products with weight 0: id_product_src=0 AND weight=0
b) Show non-link products that have no extra images: id_product_src=0 AND (extra_images IS NULL OR extra_images='')
c) Show disabled to order products: enable_toorder=1
d) Show phone-only products: order_phoneonly=1
e) There is no public list available of all database product fields yet.
Ask for help in the forum if you are interested in a particular database product field.

3. NEW: ChiefAdmins are now able to use the new "Change Product Field" function to mass update products for the current browse or search results by specifying any target database product field and its new value. Warning! This capability has to be used with CAUTION and to update only product fields that could be updated directly and don't require additional business logic. The System is Not Responsible for any mass product updates using this function.

4. NEW: The product import engine has been enhanced to allow store owners to specify special columns in the import file that would target arbitrary database product fields. This way, additional product fields can be updated even if they are not allowed to be specified on the product import form. The header of these special columns should be in the format {$product.fieldName=<field>}, where <field> could be any database product field name. For example, to update if the product is allowed to be ordered or not the header of the column in the import file must be specified by {$product.fieldName=enable_toorder}. Warning! This capability has to be used with CAUTION and to update only product fields that could be updated directly and don't require additional business logic. The System is Not Responsible for any mass product updates using this function.

5. NEW: Ability to create and configure product dependent options. For example, the store owner can configure product option Size:XXL to be available to the buyers only when they select Color:Red or Color:Blue.

6. NEW: Enhanced the shipping zones feature to allow the store owner to customize the target US states, Canada provinces, and UK counties
