LightSpeed 3.6.2

Have you ever converted a Quote, Order or SRO into an Invoice only to find that the custom billing or shipping information that you enter was not copied over? Well, that minor annoyance, and a couple of other issues, seem to have made it into Xsilva’s latest version of LightSpeed. Released quietly on Dec 2nd, version 3.6.2 follows quickly on the heels of their recent major release of 3.6 and the subsequent 3.6.1, also reported here.

While not enough to convince most people to make the leap to 3.6.x, this minor release is highly recommended for anyone that did. Kudos to the Xsilva team for squashing these bugs quickly but my money is still on waiting until the dust settles on 3.6.x before I tell any of my clients to upgrade just yet. With that said, I’ve upgraded my installation and have had no problems at all.

Here’s the official list of issues fixed…
