The behaviour of the PHP function __isset was changed with PHP version 7.0.6. OXID eShop makes use of this function __isset for lazy loading, and because of these changes lazy loading might behave unexpectedly in OXID eShop. Please read this blog post to avoid this unexpected behaviour in your projects and/or modules.
In order to improve the OXID eShop core code we are going to change some main principles of overwriting classes and methods when changing OXID eShop functionality with modules: methods may now be marked as private. This is not to cut away possibilities; there’ll be other means to catch up with what you want to achieve.
This patch update was extraordinarily pushed up to give you a proper time frame to establish the GDPR compliance with OXID eShop. Additionally, we started to introduce new principles of code writing in order to become more flexible, agile and innovative when changing the core. Anyway, this patch update contains bug fixes as well as loads of pull requests.
We recently released OXID eShop 6.0.2 including some changes in preparation of the upcoming European Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that will be applicable as of May 25th, 2018 in all member states to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe.

Last weekend, on Friday and Saturday December 8th and 9th 2017, the annual OXID Hackathon in Nuremberg took place. Read about what we were coding and what discussions came up.
As follow up for the blog post “Run tests for OXID eShop 6” here’s how to get module tests running for OXID eShop 6.
Nice thing about OXID eShop, they provide a development environment. Without big effort you can get have the shop up and running on a virtual machine. The current blog post will give some hints for how to run the shop tests that come with the shop. We will cover how to run module tests in a follow up post.
We collected all slides from the dev track on OXID Partner day 2017 and provide them for download for you guys.
While changing the global behaviour with OXID eShop 6 installation away from FTP to composer some of you guys might be confused: “What, there’s no download package/zip available anymore? WHE ALL MUST DIE!!!”. Here’s a download package for you!
