Commerce Kickstart 2.0 is LIVE!

It’s hard to believe that the official release of Commerce Kickstart 2.0 is finally here! I remember brainstorming what this distribution would be like last February in the office. We had sticky notes hung all over with wall with ideas. It’s amazing how many of the things on our wish list were achieved!

People were expecting a lot from this release. My boss was asking me every week “What about the release, is it going to happen soon?” I hope you won’t be disappointed (you better not ☺), we tried to satisfy many of the requests coming from the issue queue, we’ve been working hard to include as many as fixes and features as we can.

There has been a lot written about what is inside Kickstart, so I won’t repeat it again here. Instead, there are many people that made Commerce Kickstart 2.0 what it is today, and I want to thank them! I apologize in advanced if anyone was left out.
