6.2 Release Notes - Please Read!!

* These features will require skin updates if you do not use the default "Foundation" skin from the 6.2 release.

This release has a clear cache on demand tool which significantly optimises the caching system and lowers server load. This means that inventory or configuration changes made in the admin control panel will not be reflected on the front end of the store until the "Clear Cache" button is clicked. This can be found at the top right hand side of every page of the admin control panel. We very much appreciate that this may be seen as an unwelcome new feature but the technical significance is worthy. Unless you have a critical change to make we suggest clearing the cache habitually at the end of each admin session. If the cache is not cleared it may take up to 24 hours for your changes to show.  

To help comply with GDPR CubeCart 6.2 now has "double opt-in" for email marketing signup and a tool to create a report of all customer data based on an email address. This can be found in the "Customer" section of the admin control panel under the "GDPR Report" tab. A customer can be "forgotten" by deleting their account, newsletter subscription, review(s) and any orders they may have placed. Please note that it may be a legal obligation to keep their order data on file if you have an existing financial contract. The GDPR report can be disclosed to your customer printed or saved as a PDF and/or used to help remove their data from the system. To be GDPR compliant please be sure to have a suitable privacy policy which should contain other such information such as what each site cookie does. Further information and support may be available from your local "Information Commissioner" such as the ICO (in the UK). 

GDPR is still a very confused and misunderstood subject of which there is no one solution for every business. We will prioritise  further development to help compliance based on your feedback if merchants feel they still need extra tools.
