Works great! I've got it running my 4.6.4 era catalogs just fine (on
pgsql) except some pages that have dan-esqe perl code. I'm looking into
that. On the other hand, the new foundation template had some
trouble. E.g. I couldn't get any flypages to come up. I kept getting
apache "error 500" and interchange "page () does not exist" errors.
Also, makecat seemed to have some terminal troubles; some questions would
overwrite previous ones on the screen. (When using ssh for the
terminal). I'm also very excited about the following things:
o Better database stuff:
o New transaction support (with PostgreSQL)
o DEFAULT values in database (at the interchange level, not db level)
o ALTERNATE_DSN values - I plan to use this to setup failover db
o FileDatabase - to store *all* files off-disk (easier clustering)
o base-sku with "varient sku" add-ons
