Product Updates

I am a longstanding customer (I started with eCart 4 in 2007 and bought the full suite shortly afterwards) and WA advocate.
I have used the forums extensively in the past, and have received, (and hopefully given) a lot of useful tips and advice.
I must admit though, I am at a bit of a crossroads, and wanted to air my frustrations.

Web design is moving on at a furious pace, and some of the WA tools need updating, or I will need to find alternatives

I am happy with eCart 6, Framework builder and MySQLi server behaviors, I use them quite a lot

Security Assist and Power CMS I use, though they desperately need updating to MySQLi.
I love the access groups, rules and pages in security assist (SA), and although it is possible to do some authentication with MySQLi Server Behaviors,
it is not as versatile as SA. At the moment I have to employ both MySQL and MySQLi connections to give me the flexibility I need, which kind of defeats much of the benefit of having MySQLi.

I like some aspects of PowerCMS, but not a fan the admin interface, which is a shame, as I have tended to use a PowerCMS installation as the start point for my site admin
I would love it if the interface was responsive, had styling options (and jQuery was used instead of mooTools), and used MySQLi.

I no longer use any of the WA CSS tools

So I guess my question(s) is

Are there any updates pending for SA and PowerCMS, or failing that, are there any tutorials/guides in giving the functionality I need ?

We will be updating all of our tools for responsive design and MySQLi. In the meantime we could help on specific sites using our premier support ticket system. I don't have any directly related tutorials.

Time frame, Al?

At this point Data Assist is my primary use of WA tools, but I am very interested if eCart update to responsive will be built in. I hacked the last one, but it should be a built in option. I lost all my eCart and PS clients over the years, not the least reason was lack of responsive design. :-(
I am also looking forward to getting deeper into MySQLi , so please share your timeline on upgrades.

Thanks for all you do.

We don't have a public timeline. eCart has already been updated for responsive cart design and MySQLi. We have also already updated Powerstore to add responsive themes.

ah... I didn't know eCart had an update. I'll have to download the latest then.

Thanks Ray.

4/20/16: Updated eCart today and yes, responsive! Thanks so much!

Hi Ray.

I did a tutorial for this a few weeks ago, but status is still pending. I did submit a couple of revisions, but haven't changed it for a while. Seems to be in limbo

I just approved it... thanks for pointing it out I must have missed it as it came through.
