LightSpeed 3.6.3

Xsilva released LightSpeed 3.6.3 today and I think we’re beyond the initial scare of the ‘point-oh’ version number brought about by 3.6. It seems this version aims to tidy up a few minor loose ends it’s likely safe for anyone who had been holding off on the 3.6.x upgrade to dive in at this point. Of course, anyone already running 3.6.x is well advised to download and apply this update right away… as I did this afternoon with no issues.

I’ll bet you didn’t know that there was a Payment Method called, ‘None’. Nor did I until a client of mine unwittingly discovered it in a misguided attempt to fix a mistake that they’d made. It turns out that if you edit any payment, you’ll have the option to change the Payment Method to ‘None’… which technically should not have been possible. The error was identified quickly by LightSpeed support and rectified in the next release which came out today. This is proof, once again, that Xsilva is becoming more responsive as they improve their development processes.
