brings many completely new features, including:

for both technical and business users. The UI is now organized by Orders,
Customers, Products, Merchandising, Content, Design, Administration and

* Construct Something is a new demo site created by our Professional
Services Group and powered by Akopia Interchange 4.6. We have added a
Construct Something tour of the demo that walks you through both the store
and the administrative site. Once you are comfortable with the tour, you
can go directly to the live Construct Something demo and manipulate data

* Completely overhauled documentation is now available both with the
Interchange distribution and on this website.

* New features include split shipping, integrated shipping notices,
merchandising complementary products and upsells, enhanced discounting
capabilities, Purchase Order functionality, and more.

Development will continue with version 4.7.0, while future updates to the
4.6 line will be mostly bugfixes and minor changes.

As always, we encourage Interchange users to participate on the
interchange-users list with questions, comments, and contributions. See
