LightSpeed 3.6.1

Sure enough, two days later, 3.6.1 was released to fix some stuff that was missed in the big 3.6 release.

So far, the only complaints that I’ve received are from people who upgraded but didn’t know that the cash drawer setup had changed. After upgrading, the cash drawer didn’t open but that’s because they had not gone into the Payment Methods and specified which ones would open the drawer. Once this was done, everything worked.

Also, the new backup notification feature doesn’t seem to recognize manual backups so even if you get the notification legitimately, performing a manual backup doesn’t seem to clear it and it still tells you upon login that you haven’t been backed up. It’s a minor detail which I’m sure will be fixed soon.

Here’s the list of fixes in 3.6.1. It looks like there were a couple of ‘oops’ fixes and a couple of things that probably just didn’t make it in time for 3.6.
