OES 3.10.0 released
The latest version of OES (3.10.0) is now available from the downloads page.
There's a major change to the the way entry forms are processed. Previously we had a bunch of hidden form fields which were used to control the form as different races were selected. This is all done with Ajax now and is a bit more secure and easier to expand for the future.
We've added a way to sell sundry items along with race entry. A quick overview of this functionality is in the howto_pricing.html document.
Full details of the bug fixes and changes in this release are in the changelog.See the news archive
