    No, because at the moment i haven't an active license. I was waiting this 'Early 2024' for renewing my license but ...

    I have copied it below for you 🙂 


    Our timeline is more likely to be something like:
    Early April - open up a hosted version for a focus group
    Mid-late April - open up a hosted version for all
    Beta after that.

    Our original estimate for v5's release was late January, but we wanted to add in a few more features (news coming soon) and work on some of the infrastructure to better support some of the new functionality coming to v5. More recently, we've made the decision to switch out CKEditor 5 which was already built for another editor which is much cleaner and leaner but requires more scaffold. That's pretty much why we're not pressing ahead with alpha/beta testing right now.

    Will there be an announcement on the new Commerce features any time soon? Thanks


    There are bits we havent spoken about as of yet, as Matt mentioned in terms of donations for example. We will get to them at some point 🙂

    I'm curious, if you can achieve it via a hack and you know people will need to do it, why not simply retain the ability to modify or replace? At least then it would be more controlled. 🤔

    Actually, it would be less controlled and not as easily broken

    So regarding this assumed 80% of plugins being lost,

    Please re-read my message above. This was one person assuming 80% of 'their' plugins 'may' be 😄 

    With regards the other questions, its much better to wait until there is more released and the authors themselves state what can and cannot be achieved before going down that route.

    Hope this one doesn't belong to the list of the 80% of plugins that will die because of framework limitations.

    It does need to be noted, this is very much a case where someone says "someone may have" and by the time it hits the end the believe is the person did, and admitted it. The 80% there was not from invision, and also not referring to all marketplace plugins. It was from a plugin author relating to their own plugins. It was also an assumption without yet having all the information to make the statement those 80% are not possible. (As we havent shown everything yet, and also gathering feedback on some items).

    Maybe it would have been a plan to hold off announcing this 1 tool until you were ready to announce the rest, or at least some of them. 

    I'm sure there are others who have found in nice to get a glimpse 🙂 No matter which way we do this, releasing everything in a single blog would just be too much. And actually, we announced one yesterday, then release another today. These things are always a "damned if you do, damned if you don't" kind of thing. If we say nothing, some dont like it, if we say something, some wont like it.

    There's more to come, as mentioned.
