How we temporarily handle the right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR)

We’ve experienced requests concerning the “Right to data portability” (Art. 20 GDPR) on several channels. The legal text states someat like ” … receive the personal data … in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format…”. As this is not a clear specification, provide an SQL script for reading out all relevant information from the database. Get the script from this blog post.

Function __isset and model lazy loading with different behaviour in PHP version 7.0.6 or newer

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.

Announcing new principles in the OXID core and how you will benefit from them

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.

OXID eShop version 6.0.2
