The v7.2.5 updater is now available for ASP / PHP.
The following changes have been made...

Please note that you can upgrade from any previous version to the latest version in just one go! You don't have to install all updaters between your version and the current version.

The v7.2 line will now become the stability line and no new features will be added to this release, only bug and security fixes for current features.

Please note that CSS Layouts, which were introduced about 10 years ago, are now assumed by default. It is highly likely that there is nobody still using the non-CSS layouts, however if you do have a store that does not use CSS layouts then please set the following parameter in your vsadmin/includes.asp/php file...
usecsslayout=FALSE
$usecsslayout=FALSE;

The handling has been much improved for HTML 404 Not Found and HTML 301 Moved Permanently responses from the products and categories pages. This is a really important as it gives feedback to Google to update it's index for products or categories that you have moved or removed. To fully benefit from this feature if you are using SEO URL's or Category Names instead of ID's, set the following parameter in your includes.asp/php file...
seourlsthrow301=TRUE
$seourlsthrow301=TRUE;

There have been so many improvements and changes for the CSS layouts for the shopping cart in this release that it is difficult to list them individually, but here are some of the highlights...

A new feature has been added to the product, detail and quick buy layouts, "addtocartquant", which combines the quantity input or control in a container with the add to cart button. Doing things this way means it is much easier to maintain these elements centered vertically.

You can now take eChecks through Authorize.net with the Authorize.net Checkout integration. To do so, please go to the Admin Payment Providers page for Auth.net and set "Accept eChecks" to YES.

The Breadcrumb navigation is now separated into individual containers so that on smaller screens it "breaks" properly leaving category names intact, rather than separating the words of category names.

HTML <button> tags are now used in several places in the cart as they allow for easy addition of entities such as Font Awesome glyphs. If you want to keep the button style constant in your cart, there are some instructions here...

SVG icons are now used for the ratings stars which replace the old "shopping cart" rating graphics. These new SVG icons can be colored to match your site them with for instance the following CSS which will set the default blue color...

div.largereviewstars svg.icon,div.smallreviewstars svg.icon{
fill:#006ABA;
}

Many thanks to Guy Fortier, renowned Canadian graphic artist for his help in creating the SVG icons.

Purging orders now needs to be confirmed to guard against accidentally deleting orders.

The category breadcrumbs and the checkout button are now in a container to allow them to be aligned vertically.

We've released a Hotfix today to resolve the following issues...

This release is mainly to prevent the changes for the new Premium CSS Style system from adversely affecting existing websites.

There are also several improvements for the Premium CSS Style system to fix inconsistencies in layout and also to improve validation with an HTML5 doctype.
