Dear CMGroupBuying users,

We are pleased to announce the new features in CMGroupBuying 1.4.0:

  • Partner (merchant) can submit his/her deals in front-end, Administrators can review and approve those deals to make them public for sale.
  • Partner can have many locations (maximum is 5). At the present every partner only has 1 location.
  • Cookie for subscription form. If user has already submitted or skipped the form, it will not appear again until the cookie is expired.
  • Class suffix is supported in all CMGroupBuying's modules.
  • jQuery loading can be turned on/off easily in CMGroupBuying configuration.

We have planned to release CMGroupBuying 1.4.0 on August 24, 2012. But if the development and testing finish sooner, we will release it before August 24.

Thank you for supporting CMGroupBuying!
